Suning remain likely to sell Inter either now or at the end of the season, according to an Italian newspaper report today.
As per Corriere dello Sport’s print edition, BC Partners are the only interested party to have submitted an offer, an offer which has been deemed insufficient by Suning.
But there are still some negotiations going on between Suning and the British private equity fund over selling a majority stake in the club.
BC Partners’ offer is reportedly worth €750 million, which falls some way short of Suning’s €1 billion asking price, but there has been talk in the media that BC Partners could agree to make up the difference by including bonuses.
If Suning opt not to sell Inter now, their alternative is to seek a loan worth around €200 million, which would enable them to see out the remainder of this season in charge and cover all costs.
They would then reconsider selling the Nerazzurri in the summer with more time.
The Rome-based paper said the coming weeks would be decisive for Inter in one way or another.
