Investors and even potential buyers have already shown an interest in Inter Milan ahead of Oaktree Capital’s takeover of the club.

This according to today’s print edition of Italian business newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, via FCInterNews.

Now it’s official. US-based fund Oaktree Capital have begun the process of taking over as Inter owners from Suning.

The fund will exercise their right to repossess the previous owners controlling shares in the Nerazzurri after the latter defaulted on their debt from a loan in the spring of 2021.

For the past three years, the sense has been that Oaktree would not have much of an interest in running Inter.

Reports indicated that the US fund would prefer to see Suning sell the club.

And alternatively, if Oaktree were to take over, that the fund would aim to sell Inter.

So far, however, the indications are that Oaktree are ready to keep hold of Inter for some time.

The fund’s official statement on the matter suggests plans for the Nerazzurri.

But that does not mean that there is not interest in buying Inter.

Il Sole 24 Ore report that there is already interest in investing in the club in the background.

This would be both in terms of minority investment, and in terms of buying the Nerazzurri outright.

It does not look to be the case that Oaktree have a new buyer waiting in the wings.

Despite some speculation, the US fund have not lined up a sale for the immediate future in preparation for taking over Inter from Suning.

But the feeling is certainly that Oaktree will listen to offers.

And Il Sole 24 Ore report that there has already been some movement in that respect.

With Suning gone and Oaktree at the helm, the interest is already starting to grow.
