Inter will receive less money than they wanted from their new shirt sponsor, according to a report in the Italian media.
Gazzetta.it said the Nerazzurri were hoping to secure a deal worth €25 million annually from whoever replaced Pirelli, with the Italian tyre manufacturer due to step back on June 30.
There are several groups interested in becoming Inter’s main shirt sponsor, including one from a technological background, but nobody has offered the figure Inter want.
The club could be forced to settle for a deal worth around €20 million plus bonuses, which would still be a reasonable increase on what Pirelli were paying.
Inter president Steven Zhang has had to delay his sponsorship search due to the COVID-19 pandemic and his recent quest to secure fresh investment for the club, which eventually came from Oaktree Capital.
Pirelli are due to end their historic 25-year collaboration with Inter when their contract expires at the end of the month.
