Bahrain-based fund InvestCorp has reignited their interest in buying Inter from current owners Suning.
This according to Italian business newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, who report that the fund are working on a dossier to potentially complete a purchase of the Nerazzurri, and that they are looking for investors.
InvestCorp had been interested in purchasing Inter during the fall, although reports of their interest in the Nerazzurri then tailed off.
However, according to Il Sole 24 Ore, the fund have not lost their interest in Inter, and are in fact now looking into the possibility of a takeover.
The newspaper reports that the Bahrain-based fund have been studying the possibility and are actively putting together a dossier to try and move forward with their interest.
InvestCorp had been widely reported to be interested in taking over Inter’s city rivals AC Milan from Elliott Management before RedBird Capital Partners instead completed the takeover.
However, it was later reported that the Bahrain-based fund had also been interested in taking over at Inter before they had attempted to purchase the Rossoneri.
In any event, the persistent rumours of a sale of the Nerazzurri by Suning have never really gone away, even if the owners and President Steven Zhang have always maintained that there is no truth to them and that they aim to keep control of the club.
The current owners have been reported to be looking into possible minority investment in the club, and while there have been some reports that they could be successful in their search, so far have been unable to bring any financial support in the form of minority partners.
Meanwhile, former Nerazzurri CEO Ernesto Pellegrini recently commented that he believes that it could be possible that an Italian-led takeover of the club could occur, although this would also be based on the decision of Zhang.
