Inter are in advanced talks with Oaktree Capital Group over a €150 million deal to ease the club’s financial problems, according to a report in the US media today.

Bloomberg said the companies had held several meetings during the last month, with people close to the matter suggesting that a deal could lead to Oaktree becoming the Nerazzurri’s new minority shareholder.

Inter are being linked with various companies as Suning seek fresh investment to guarantee the Nerazzurri’s long-term economic stability.

A representative at Oaktree declined to comment.

Earlier today, a report in the French media said Inter were negotiating with US investment firm King Street over a deal worth potentially €250 million.

The Nerazzurri look set for another summer of austerity in the transfer market, as per another source, which could force the club to consider selling off one or two key players.

Inter president Steven Zhang is expected to provide clarity on the situation when he returns to Milan, possibly next week.
