BC Partners are about to make Inter’s owners Suning a formal offer to take control of the club, according to an Italian newspaper report today.

As per Corriere dello Sport’s print edition, despite Suning reportedly putting a stop to the parties’ talks on Monday, the British private equity fund will nevertheless make an offer which could arrive in either the coming hours or by the end of this week.

It cannot be ruled out, according to the Rome-based publication, that Suning deliberately leaked their dissatisfaction with BC Partners’ valuation for Inter in a bid to increase the amount of money on offer, because at the moment there is a difference in negotiations of over €200 million.

BC Partners aside, there are many other funds said to be interested in purchasing Inter with a consortium formed by Fortress and Mubadala understood to be one of the options.

Suning are thought to have a positive view of said consortium because Fortress are used to dealing with companies with debt, while Mubadala have previously bought minority stakes in companies like Ferrari before selling them on.

It is therefore possible that Suning could remain as the majority shareholders of Inter, if they picked this option, but the paper argued that, given the Chinese government restrictions regarding exporting capital, it was not the most likely of solutions.

EQT, Arctos Sport Partners, Ares Management and Temasek are all also interested in purchasing a stake in Inter.
