Inter owners Suning have not been consistent in their public messages regarding the future of the club, Italian journalist Franco Vanni claims.

There are growing concerns over the financial stability of the club after players’ wages were deferred in November and December and an outstanding transfer fee for Achraf Hakimi was renegotiated with Real Madrid, whilst Suning are in talks over selling their majority share to BC Partners.

Such is the uncertainty regarding the club’s accounts that the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) opened an investigation into Inter’s finances through their Supervisory Commission (COVISOC).

However, in the wake of this Suning published a report to confirm that they were indeed in a position to be able to meet all financial obligations until June.

Taking to social media, La Repubblica journalist Vanni highlighted the limited communication from Suning since the start of the year as well as the mixed messages from the Chinese retail conglomerate.

“Since December Suning have spoken three times: January 2, Steven Zhang (officially): ‘We deny the sale of Inter.’ February 1, (unofficially): ‘Negotiations with BC Partners have been interrupted.’ Now, after COVISOC/FIGC (official report): ‘We guarantee financial cover until June,'” Vanni tweeted.
