Inter Milan are keeping their title charge going under the ownership of Suning despite off-the-pitch rumours of a Qatar takeover.
This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper La Repubblica, via FCInter1908.
Inter’s situation behind the scenes is a source of persistent rumours and speculation.
The latest have concerned the possibility that the sovereign wealth fund of the nation of Qatar could launch a bid to buy the Nerazzurri from current owners Suning.
This is far from the first time there have been links regarding a possibility of a takeover. And Suning have always remained at the helm.
But with Inter President Steven Zhang yet to return to Italy since the start of the season, and the looming due date to a huge loan from Oaktree Capital coming into view, there is a sense that something is on the horizon.
Inter Continue Title Charge Under Suning Despite Qatar Sale Rumours
Perhaps rumours about the future of Inter off the pitch could act as a distraction on it.
But so far this season, that has not proven to be the case.
On the contrary, Inter have enjoyed a high level of consistency and continuity.
The Nerazzurri have already qualified for the upcoming 2025 FIFA Club World Cup in the US. That is certainly a boost for the team financially.
And in Serie A, Inter are four points clear at the top of the table.
This is a reflection of the Nerazzurri having found a kind of equilibrium.
Regardless of at-times adverse conditions that the club’s financial uncertainty causes, they have found a way so far.
Maybe it’s not sustainable. And the rumours of a sale will always suggest this.
But for now, Suning are still stewarding the team in the right direction.
The Chinese owners have already won one Serie A title with Inter. And they are hoping to make it two.
