Oaktree Capital are aiming to see Inter Milan win more Serie A titles and have deep Champions League runs under their ownership.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews. The outlet anticipate that the US fund see sporting success as crucial for their financial bottom line.

Ultimately, Oaktree’s motivation for taking over Inter from Suning is financial in nature.

The fund will aim to sell the Nerazzurri at some stage. And they will hope to maximize the profit that they make, naturally.

That is the modus operandi of Oaktree as a fund.

Naturally, this could lead to some worries that Oaktree’s ownership of Inter would focus more on the financial side. Cost-cutting at the expense of sporting results would be the spectre looming.

And it is true that Oaktree will certainly make responsible and sustainable spending one of their priorities.

But the Gazzetta make clear that the new owners will not be looking to slash costs or make big profits by selling key players in the squad.

Rather, the central aim of Oaktree’s project is to increase revenues. And sporting success will go hand-in-hand with that goal.

Oaktree Dreaming Big For Inter In Serie A & Champions League

Over the last few years, Oaktree have observed how Inter have increased their revenues.

And the fund have clearly taken note of the importance of results on the pitch in this respect.

The fact that Inter have won the Serie A title in two of the last four seasons has had a big impact on the value of the club’s brand.

This has allowed the Nerazzurri to carve out more lucrative commercial partnership.

And last season’s run to the Champions League arguably had an even greater impact.

Inter played in the most high-profile game in club football. Despite losing 1-0 to Manchester City, they took on a great deal of prestige in terms of their brand and reputation.

That run to the final enabled Inter to recover somewhat from the absolute debacle that was their ill-fated shirt sponsorship deal with cryptocurrency company DigitalBits.

And there was also a significant boost to revenues in the form of prize money from UEFA for each knockout round that Inter reached in Europe’s top club competition. Not to mention gate receipts from knockout ties at San Siro.

So for Oaktree, the logic is that they want to keep Inter every bit as competitive as in the last few years.

That does not mean that the US-based fund will inject massive amounts of cash to improve the team with big-name signings.

But Oaktree would see any cost-cutting measures that compromise the team on the pitch as ultimately bad for their bottom line.

The new Inter owners want to increase revenues and the value of the club with more sporting success.
