New Nerazzurri owners Oaktree Capital have already invested €50 million into the bond of Inter Milan in 2022.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper note that the owners have already reduced the club’s debt exposure, and also report what Inter will earn from shirt sponsorships next season.

Oaktree have only been Inter owners for a few weeks.

But the US fund’s involvement with the Nerazzurri stretches back much further than that.

Oaktree have had a presence at Inter since the spring of 2021. That is when they made a loan to former Nerazzurri owners Suning.

In the intervening three years, while Suning continued to own the club, Oaktree have also had representation on the club’s board of directors.

Moreover, Tuttosport note, there was a 50 million investment in the 415 million bond held by Inter Media & Communication in 2022.

That is no small amount in terms of reducing the Nerazzurri’s debt exposure.

Tuttosport confirm that next season, it will be betting company Betsson on the front of Inter’s shirt.
