Suning’s sale of Inter to BC Partners is almost done, at least according to noted Italian football journalist Fabio Ravezzani this afternoon.
Suning have been in talks with the British-based private equity fund for a few months over the sale of the club and although it has been widely reported that there is a great difference between Suning’s demands and BC Partners offer, a deal nevertheless appears close to completion.
Ravezzani has claimed that only a few details need to be ironed out and the completion of the deal can practically be taken for granted.
Suning have owned Inter for the past four and half years but they are now suffering from a real lack of liquidity, which has also had an impact on Inter.
Ravezzani took to Twitter to share the news but did not give a timeline for when the deal will be fully completed.
This news comes just shortly after BC Partners’ Nikos Stathopoulos revealed that they were exploring investing into a football club.
Ravezzani posted: “Breaking news: According to those close to negotiations, the sale of Inter from Suning to BC Partners has now been defined.
“A few details remain to be sorted, but a positive conclusion of the deal is taken for granted.”
Ultim’ora: Da ambienti vicini alla trattativa viene data ormai per definita la cessione dell’Inter da Suning a BC Partners. Restano pochi dettagli, ma la felice conclusione dell’affare è dato per scontato.
