Inter are very actively looking for a new main shirt sponsor to take the place of DigitalBits given the cryptocurrency company’s nonpayment on their current sponsorship agreement.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper La Repubblica, who report that the Nerazzurri are working to replace DigitalBits as soon as possible, and that legal action could be taken if payment does not arrive by January.

Inter’s deal with DigitalBits has barely even begun, with the cryptocurrency company having entered into an agreement to become the main shirt sponsor to replace starting this season after having been a sleeve sponsor last season, but it is already dead in the water.

The serious financial issue faced by the company mean that they will not be able to pay the agreed-upon amount, and so the Nerazzurri are working to replace them.

However, Inter are still hoping to collect the tranche that they are owed, and January is the deadline for this, after which the club could take legal action against DigitalBits.

Meanwhile La Repubblica also report that the Nerazzurri are close to completing a deal with Konami to become the new sleeve sponsor, and that they are hoping to double revenues from their deal with Nike, with the official kits currently not being manufactured to keep up with demand.
