BC Partners, Fortress & PIF Battling For Inter But Suning Want To Stay, Italian Broadcaster Reports
Inter’s owners Suning remain hopeful they can find a way to avoid selling the club, according to a leading Italian broadcaster.
Speculation over the Nerazzurri’s future has reached fever pitch today, with BC Partners, Fortress and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) all reported to have made offers.
However, Sky Sport Italia reported that sources close to Suning had said the group want to find ‘alternatives’ which can enable them to stay at Inter.
Suning are looking for partners who can offer loans or join as minority shareholders, similar to what happened over the weekend with their own company Suning.com
Sky confirmed Il Sole 24 Ore’s report from last night which said Fortress’ offer for Inter was of a hybrid nature, precisely a mix between capital and a loan.
They suggested this form of proposal could be more appetising to Suning than the offers from BC Partners and PIF, who want to purchase Inter outright.
Suning have a series of payment deadlines coming up at the end of March, so whatever happens they will need to find a solution quickly.
