Inter attracts a new unnamed investor. He is a wealthy businessman from north Italy. As reported by Italian media. According to Milano Finanza, the wealthy entrepreneur was examining the Inter’s financial situation. He is intending to make a bid. He can look to form a group with Interspace. It is a group of rich and famous Inter fans. They are looking to invest in the club on a minority basis.
Inter’s current owners, Suning, are looking for new investors. They took over Erick Thohir in 2016. The Chinese giant have € 400 million in debt. They are looking to recoup all their investments in the club. It is a total of about € 600 million. This could be a great option for them to sell up.
Inter attracts new investor, international companies also keen
EQT, Ares Management Corporation, and other international companies have an interest in Inter. Moreover, US investment fund Fortress and Abu Dhabi state investor Mubadala are also keen. So it is likely that Inter will be sold to an international fund. But a local option like this one can not be ignored.
BC partners made an offer of €750 million. As reported by II Sole 24 Ore. Suning should analyze the structure and the economic value of the offer. The Chinese giant should decide if they wish to accept and sell the club for good. Inter need an injection of €200 million before the end of 2021. Otherwise, they may not be able to meet their various financial obligations. They are yet to pay the wages to their players. Some bonds need refinancing because they are due to expire. They have also failed to pay Real Madrid the first instalment of Achraf Hakimi’s transfer fee. Hence, the Nerazzurri should look to benefit from this widespread interest in the club.
