Inter Milan president Steven Zhang will reportedly skip the club’s Scudetto celebrations in what could be his last season at the helm.

The 32-year-old has been acting as club president since 2018. He previously served as a member of the board when Suning bought the club’s majority shares from Erick Thohir in 2016.

In previous seasons, Zhang has often been close to the team, attending some of the most prestigious fixtures. He also made sure to be present whenever the Nerazzurri clinched a trophy.

However, the situation has been drastically different this term.

With Suning engulfed in alleged legal and financial problems in China, the young chairman has been kept busy.

Even when the club held its general shareholder’s assembly, Zhang only attended via video call.

So according to Tuttosport via FcInterNews, the club president could even miss Inter’s Scudetto celebrations.

The Nerazzurri currently enjoy a healthy lead in the Serie A standings, with 14 points separating them from AC Milan.

Simone Inzaghi’s men may mathematically clinch the title with a Derby della Madonnina victory on April 22nd.

This would make for a historical occasion, as it would unlock the club’s second golden star.

Yet, Zhang is unlikely to be around to celebrate with the club, claims the Turin-based newspaper.

The source adds that this could well be the Chinese’s last year at the helm of the Serie A giants.

Suning have yet to find a solution with Oaktree Capital. The American investment company loaned the club 275 million euros in 2021, a sum that the Chinese company must repay before May 20th 2024.

This deadline could spell the end of Zhang and Suning at Inter, with Oaktree taking over while trying to find a buyer.

However, the source notes that the US-based company has thus far been unsuccessful in the search for new investors.
