Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta isn’t able to say much about what the future holds for Nerazzurri owners Suning.

Speaking at the Enzo Bearzot Awards, via FCInterNews, the Nerazzurri executive did say that he hopes that the current owners and President Steven Zhang can remain at the helm.

The deadline of Suning’s loan from US-based fund Oaktree Capital arrives in just over a month now.

Therefore, one way or another, there will be clarity regarding the future of the Inter owners soon.

Should the Nerazzurri owners default on the loan, then their shares in Inter will pass into hands of Oaktree.

On the other hand, Suning are still working to try and find a path forwards. This could be an agreement with Oaktree on an extension of the deadline – or refinancing with a different fund.

Inter CEO Marotta was appointed by Suning and Zhag. The veteran executive, along with the rest of the sporting staff, have worked under the current owners for more than give years.

Nevertheless, Marotta does not yet know the fate of Suning.

Inter CEO Marotta: “Can’t Speaking To Future Of Suning, Hope Zhang Stays”

Asked about the future of Suning beyond the deadline of the Oaktree loan next May, Marotta replied “That’s not a question I can speak to.”

“It’s a matter for the ownership.”

“All I can say is that yesterday I spoke to Steven Zhang,” the CEO continued.

“He wasn’t physically present. But we speak with him every day, and I can say that he’s a perfect owner for the club.”

“He knows how to delegate,” Marotta said of the current Inter President.

“He respects our roles perfectly. And my hope is that Steven Zhang can continue on at the club.”

“There are positive signs that that could be the case,” Marotta continued.

“Our situation is calm, financially speaking. We’re calm, and we hope that we can continue with the Zhang family.”

Meanwhile, Marotta also addressed his own future at Inter.

“I have a contract that runs out in 2027,” the veteran executive said. “By then, I’ll be nearly seventy years old.”

“I’ll make the assessments that I have to at that point.”

“Maybe I could try my hand at a new experience,” Marotta hinted.

“But in the meantime, we’ll try to keep winning trophies,” the Inter CEO said. “And we’ll see what happens with the Zhang family.
