BC Partners will make Inter’s owners Suning an offer to buy the club in February, according to an Italian newspaper report today.
As per Corriere dello Sport, the private equity fund are two to three weeks away from completing their due diligence of the Nerazzurri’s accounts and after this process is complete, they will present a proposal to purchase a majority stake in the club.
BC Partners are a step ahead of all other parties interested in investing into Inter because they are carrying out due diligence on an exclusive basis.
The British-based firm are said to be convinced they can buy Inter at a price that would allow them to obtain revenues from the sale of the club in the future.
Once BC Partners submit an offer, it will then be up to Suning to decide whether they immediately begin more detailed negotiations with them or if they will first listen to other offers.
Their decision will provide an indication on how much of a hurry they are to sell Inter, a club they wish to leave in a solid position in order to show respect to Inter as well as to be remembered in a certain way.
Suning are also understood to have no interest in selling a stake in the club to the group of famous Inter fans, including former owner and president Massimo Moratti, reportedly interested in becoming minority shareholders.
