A report in the Italian press explains how Inter Milan have now adopted a new strategy on the market with Oaktree taking over from Suning.

The Chinese group was at the club’s helm for almost eight years.

But after failing to repay their debt to the American company on the due date, they had no other option but to relinquish their majority shares at the club.

Therefore, Oaktree are now in control at Viale della Liberazione. The Californian fund has already rung the changes in Inter’s transfer policy.

As Il Corriere dello Sport (via FcInterNews) notes, Oaktree are implementing a new policy for the club’s market dealings that is strikingly different from Suning’s.

In the previous regime, Beppe Marotta and company thrived on the free-agent market.

The Nerazzurri also secured the signings of several experienced players either for free or on low-cost operations. We’re talking about the likes of Francesco Acerbi and Matteo Darmian.

However, the new owners want the management to focus on younger players. This would help raise the market value of the squad.

Hence, Oaktree have reportedly vetoed the arrivals of Ricardo Rodriguez and Mario Hermoso.

Inter Milan Owners Oaktree Adopt Different Market Strategy From Suning

The club directors were hoping to sign either the Swiss veteran or the Spaniard defender for free. However, the new ownership is seeking younger profiles.

Therefore, the Roman newspaper believes Inter could turn their attention to Genoa’s Johan Vazquez. The 25-year-old Mexican could arrive on a temporary basis.

Hence, Nerazzurri supporters can expect a much more cautious transfer session from Oaktree compared to Suning who insisted on launching some fireworks upon their arrival in 2016.

The Chinese group insisted on stealing the limelight by overpaying to sign Gabriel Barbosa and Joao Mario. But neither proved to be a success at San Siro.
