Real Madrid have been ordered to pay Inter an extra €8m relating to their signing of Brazilian striker Ronaldo in 2002.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) made its decision following a hearing on Thursday at which Real appealed against an order by FIFA to pay a €10m settlement to Inter.
Ronaldo moved to Real in August 2002 in a deal worth €35m which also included midfielder Santiago Solari in part-exchange.
The €35m was paid but Solari refused to move to Italy, prompting Inter’s request for an additional payment.
CAS said in a statement on Friday: “Real Madrid and Inter Milan…have decided to settle the controversy related to the interpretation of the transfer agreement of Ronaldo to the Spanish club, and concerning the position of the player Solari.
“Real Madrid shall pay eight million euros to Inter Milan, divided as follows: €7m by June 30, 2004 and €1m by June 30, 2005.”
