Inter could find themselves under the ownership of BC Partners in a matter of months, according to an Italian media report today.
As per Corriere dello Sport’s print edition, progress has been made in negotiations between the private equity fund and the Nerazzurri’s current owners Suning.
BC Partners are swiftly conducting due diligence on Inter’s accounts, so much so that there is optimism that there will be a sale of shares, almost certainly for a majority stake in the club, within a couple of months.
The report from the Rome-based news outlet explains that an ‘extraordinary’ meeting of the Inter board of directors has been called for tomorrow.
The focus of this meeting will not be the latest sporting results but rather the latest when it comes to their off-pitch problems.
Inter’s accounts have long been suffering, largely due to the Covid-19 pandemic, deadlines for paying players salaries are approaching and there is also a January transfer market to be conducted.
Inter president Steven Zhang will be present at this meeting via video call and it is inevitable that Suning’s intentions for the club moving forward will be discussed.
