“Suning and Evergrande have reached a” complete and long lasting “strategic cooperation agreement between Jindong Zhang and Zu Jiayin. The agreement also concerns their Football interests, otherwise there would be no explanation for in the meeting – held in Nanjiing – why the leaders of Suning Sports Group also attended. Evergrande could look to buy out the remaining 30% of shares held by former Inter majority shareholder, now honourary President Erik Thohir, after he announced that he is looking to disengage from the club” This is what Tuttosport says today.

The Indonesian businessman agreed to sell the majority of his stake to Suning in 2016 after a vastly considered disappointing era of Football for the Nerazzurri, now with new Chinese owners led by the Zhang family Inter are looking to return to the big stage and start winning again, assuming the Chinese investment restrictions are hopefully soon lifted on Football for Suning and all Chines owners alike, Evergrande could offer far more financial power to Inter in comparison to Thohir, especially since his initial sale of the club.
