BC Partners are working on building a financial consortium of sorts in order to buy Inter, according to noted Italian journalist Marco Bellinazzo.
As per the Il Sole 24 Ore reporter, the British private equity fund are continuing talks with Inter’s current owners Suning over possibly taking over at the Nerazzurri club.
Bellinazzo claims that as per information coming out of London financial circles, BC Partners are looking for allies to form a consortium with, all of whom would then invest and acquire Inter.
BC Partners have been conducting due diligence of the Nerazzurri’s accounts on an exclusive basis in recent weeks and are one of several funds to have been linked with investing into Inter.
American funds Arctos Sports Partners and Ares have been linked, as has Singaporean fund Temasek, an unnamed Qatari fund and Swedish fund EQT, whose vice-president recently refused to comment on recent rumours.
Bellinazzo took to Twitter and posted: “The talks between Suning and BC Partners continue to take over Inter.
“From London circles we learn that BC Partners is actually working to build a sort of “financial consortium”, allying itself with other funds interested in acquiring the Nerazzurri club.”
