After the initial and understandable confusion, Roberto Mancini has accepted the challenge. He will be the head coach of Inter in the Suning era, as he confirmed yesterday to Gardini and Ausilio after a long meeting which lasted over four hours. The reasons for the ‘yes’ are explained by Gazzetta dello Sport. “First of all, as it has been reported Suning in a short time will increase their shares in Inter from 70% to 100%. What they have done with the Jiangsu team- bought for $ 80 million, renamed them to Suning and enriched them with Ramires and Alex Teixeira in January – suggests that they may propose a similar move in Italy. Mancini has also realized that with the new owners there are stronger transfer market possibilities over the next two years (2016-2018) while respecting the regulations of Financial Fair Play. Gardini and Ausilio explained to Mancini that despite the almost infinite resources of Suning, this summer transfer will be without big signings; because the priority of the Chinese is to balance the cashflow and lower the debts, and they will have no way to re-discuss the agreement on Financial Fair Play with Uefa for this session “.
