Speaking to Indonesian media a few days ago, Erick Thohir, Inter president, stressed the difference between Inter and Milan in terms of the new Chinese investors and market strategies: “The transition was different. When I first bought Inter, I bought so many new players for Inter, but now there are new owners, Suning, and they have brought so many players. AC Milan have new investors who are spending a lot but we have a different strategy. We have Ivan Perisic and Eder,  Antonio Candreva and Gabriel Barbosa on the right, Mauro Icardi in the attack, not to mention in the middle, where we have Roberto Gagliardini, Borja Valero, Gary Medel, Marcelo Brozovic and Geoffrey Kondogbia. We have to be a balanced team. ” The tycoon also pointed out that Suning is currently focusing on several extra-field aspects such as ticket sales, merchandising, or sponsors.

Thohir then talks with particular pride about the purchase made in 2014 of Danilo D’Ambrosio: “Why did we buy him?” When we bought him, he was not very well known, but eventually he became a player of the Italian national team, with us he improved, and became a good fullback. We also had Hernanes with us, but then on the way we found out that there are better playmakers. Ever Banega also came to Inter but he was not very in tune with the team, so we bought Borja Valero “.
