Inter Milan President Steven Zhang has not been saying anything about the rumoured possibility of a sale of the club to the club directors.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper La Repubblica, via FCInterNews, who characterize the Nerazzurri President as tight-lipped on the situation even internally within the club.
Rumours about a possible change in owner for Inter have been persistent in recent years.
And in the past couple of days, another round of reports have come out.
These have centred around the possibility of an offer that would actually be large enough to meet Suning’s valuation.
Specifically, Bahrain-based fund InvestCorp have been at the centre of these rumours.
This is not the first time that there have been linked between the fund and a possible purchase of Inter.
But recent reports suggest that InvestCorp have indicated that they are willing to make an offer as high as €1.3 billion to purchase Inter.
Steven Zhang Not Saying Much About Sale Rumours To Inter Milan Club Directors
At the moment, the rumours have been flying.
Some reports have even suggested that due diligence is underway on a possible purchase of Inter by InvestCorp.
And if the Bahrain-based fund were to make an offer as high as they reportedly are prepared to, it would certainly test Zhang and Suning’s resolve.
Finnish businessman Thomas Zilliacus has also shown a persistent interest. And then there is the possibility of a buyer emerging from the US market.
Therefore, with the rumours constantly circulating, one might expect Zhang to discuss any possible sale with the club directors.
But according to La Repubblica, that is not the case at all.
Rather, the Inter President has said little to nothing regarding a sale in talks with the directors.
Zhang’s focus has just been on the day-to-day running of the club. He has not stoked any of the rumours of a sale in talks with the directors.
