Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has given updates on some key matters related to the club, including a confirmation that there are no talks between owners Suning and Saudi fund PIF.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN before the Nerazzurri’s Serie A clash with Juventus this evening, the executive explained that he expects current President Steven Zhang to remain at the club for the foreseeable future.

A report from a couple weeks ago suggested that the PIF were in advanced talks to purchase the Nerazzurri from Suning, having recently also completed the takeover of Premier League club Newcastle United.

However, disavowals of the report also emerged, and Marotta has clarified that he does not believe that the current owners have an intent to sell the club in the immediate future.

Marotta also responded to the words of Bianconeri coach Max Allegri who claimed that he believes Inter are Scudetto favourites, stating that “He is an old fox and a good communicator. I don’t know if we are favourites, but we are the champions of Italy and we must honour this role.”

The executive also spoke about the January transfer window, saying that “I would like to underline that ours is a team effort, with Ausilio, Baccin and all the contributors.”

“We had the aim of securing the company financially and we had to sell important assets,” he went on, “but then we worked with imagination and creativity, succeeding in finding worthy replacements. Football is a team game, not an individual one, so we must enhance and consolidate this concept.”

On the supposed interest of the PIF in buying the Nerazzurri he stated that “I am not a shareholder, but in the past few days I have spoken with the President and he has given reassurances on his continuing on.”

“There are absolutely nothing concrete to do with that fund, as far as the question of ownership. I limit myself to managing the club with my colleagues, we try to do it in the best way.”
