Inter have called an emergency board meeting for tomorrow as owners Suning continue talks to reportedly sell the club, according to a report in Italy.
The Nerazzurri will analyse the concerning financial situation which has been created due to the Covid-19 crisis and persuaded the Chinese e-commerce giants to begin searching for new investors.
Wednesday’s print edition of Corriere dello Sport was first to announce news of the assembly, with the story being confirmed by fellow newspaper Corriere della Sera this evening.
Inter president Steven Zhang, who has previously denied Suning are looking to sell the club, will take part in the meeting via a video link.
British investment firm BC Partners are thought to have begun negotiations with Suning to become shareholders at Inter, with CEO Beppe Marotta confirming on Wednesday that Suning were ‘evaluating opportunities’ for the club.
Inter’s economic crisis is preventing Marotta and Piero Ausilio from carrying out any activity in the January transfer window, with no budget available for signings unless players are sold.
Corriere della Sera’s report suggested the off-field tension risked having negative repercussions on Antonio Conte and his players, although they stayed focused on the job yesterday to secure a 2-1 win against Fiorentina in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia.
