Inter are a matter of days away from securing the investment they need, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Corriere dello Sport’s print edition said the Nerazzurri would secure a loan deal from either Bain Capital or Oaktree by Friday.
The loan deal will total €250-270 million and will be sent to Great Horizon, Suning’s holdings company through which they control Inter, with €200 million of that sum going directly into Inter’s accounts.
Bain Capital and Oaktree are both negotiating with Inter over a deal and at the moment it is difficult to say who will win the race.
Both parties are in complex talks with the Nerazzurri, which involve a series of clauses that will link Inter to the group from which they receive the money.
Oaktree have a more ambitious plan for Inter than Bain Capital because they are not interested in just supplying loan deal, instead hoping to buy out LionRock Capital’s 31% stake in the club.
Eventually they hope to gain greater control and possibly become Inter’s new owners in the future, replacing Suning.
