Italian Journalist Ivan Zazzaroni: “Suning Are Looking For Complete Sale Of Inter”

Inter owners Suning are looking to completely offload the club rather than seek investors, according to Italian journalist Ivan Zazzaroni.

The Chinese retail conglomerate have been in discussions over a potential takeover of the club since last month, with British private equity fund BC Partners believed to have been the frontrunner after being granted exclusive access to the club’s accounts.

Meanwhile, American group Fortress have been mooted as potential investors as Suning look to raise funds or sell the club.

There are growing concerns over the financial state of Inter, with players wages deferred and an exchange involving Roma striker Edin Dzeko and Nerazzurri forward Alexis Sanchez collapsing in part due to Inter’s reluctance to increase the wage bill and meet Dzeko’s higher salary.

Speaking to Italian radio station Radio Deejay earlier today, Zazzaroni claimed the Inter President Steven Zhang was indeed looking to sell the club outright, rather than continue with partners.

“Zhang is not looking for partners, he is trying to sell everything and there is no second thoughts about this. Fortress have been mentioned, but there are others,” Zazzaroni suggested.

Suning have owned a majority share in Inter since completing a takeover in June 2016, purchasing the club from former Presidents Erick Thohir and Massimo Moratti.
