While the future of Suning remains shrouded in mystery, Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta still holds a firm position at the club.

The Nerazzurri majority owners risk losing control over the club in the coming months.

In May 2021, the Chinese company took a loan from Oaktree Capital to cover the club’s operational costs. However, they are struggling to repay the amount along with the interest rate on the agreed deadline (May 20th, 2024).

Suning are now seeking alternative solutions, including the postponement of the deadline or refinancing the loan.

Nevertheless, they have yet to reach an agreement with Oaktree over the matter.

Therefore, club president Steven Zhang and his collaborators could end up relinquishing their control over the club in favor of the creditors.

But regardless of Zhang’s fate, Marotta will remain in his office, reports La Repubblica via FcInter1908.

As the source explains, Oaktree Capital consider the 66-year-old a great asset for the club.

So even if Suning were to depart, the club’s CEO will maintain his post.

Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta Will Remain Even If Oaktree Takes Over From Suning

The former Sampdoria and Juventus general director joined the Nerazzurri in 2018, shortly after ending his collaboration with the Bianconeri.

Since then, he has helped the club usher in a new era of success.

Marotta brought his expertise to the club’s hierarchy, including his remarkable ability to pick up bargains on free transfers.

The Beneamata have already won a Scudetto under his tutelage in 2021. They’re not set to bring the trophy back to Appiano Gentile at the end of the season and unlock the club’s second star in the process.
