Oaktree Capital will keep the current Inter Milan senior management intact in the event of a takeover from Suning.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews.

There could be a lot of uncertainty on the horizon for Inter at the ownership level.

What appears clear is that Oaktree will become the Nerazzurri’s new owners soon.

Barring any shock last minute twists, there will be no way for Suning to pay back their debt to the US-based fund.

Therefore, per the terms of the agreement between Suning and Oaktree in the spring of 2021, the Chinese company’s controlling shares in Inter will pass into the hands of the US fund.

Oaktree Capital To Maintain Full Faith In Inter Milan Senior Management

There are big questions about whether Oaktree will continue to run Inter, or aim to sell the club right away.

But at least for a period of time, the US-based fund will certainly be at the helm.

According to Tuttosport, however, there will be no attempts to seriously change Inter’s planning. At least on the pitch.

Oaktree are well aware of the importance of the work that Inter’s current directors have done.

CEO Beppe Marotta, Sporting Director Piero Ausilio, and Assistant Sporting Director Dario Baccin have been the architects of the Nerazzurri’s transfer policy for months.

That trio has had to work within tight budgetary constraints. But this has not stopped them from building a team that has won trophies in each of the last four seasons.

Oaktree hardly have any intention of disrupting this balance.

Off the pitch, there will undoubtedly be turbulence. Oaktree will have to set up a sale of Inter for thew future – and face a prospective legal battle with Suning.

But on the pitch, Inter’s senior management already have clear plans.

And the directors will be allowed the carry them out by Oaktree as owners.
