Erick Thohir InterThe sale of to Erick Thohir continues to move forward as the Indonesian businessman is in Italy and has already held talks with Massimo Moratti and son Angelo Mario.

Reports continue to state that Thohir is set to buy a 75 per cent share in the club in exchange for €350 million, though some indicate the deal will see 40 per cent of the club sold in view of a majority being sold over time.

Thohir met the two members of the Moratti family in the Ristorante Armani in Milan to continue talks between the two sides.

Thohir was accompanied by his right hand man Jason Levien, an American colleague who is co-owner of DC United and CEO of the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies. It is believed he will become part of the new look board of directors at the club once the deal goes through.

The Indonesian businessman presented his bank guarantees earlier this week and that has allowed for the deal to move forward, and it is believed that the two parties could sign off on a deal as soon as this Sunday.

It is not yet known what role Moratti will take after the sale, although there are reports the 68-year-old will remain as president in order to maintain the family tradition at the club.

About the Author

Adriano Boin

- A passionate F.C. Internazionale supporter since the young age of 10, my love for the club came about on a family trip to Italy after their signing of Roberto Baggio. Much to the dismay of my father (a Milan fan) my love for the club only grew stronger and has taken me on trips to Genova and Boston to see my club in action. The greatest of these journeys was being blessed by incredible luck (to which this day I still cannot comprehend) which allowed me to travel to Madrid, see the 2010 Champions League Final in the flesh and experience a week-long trip that will probably never be surpassed.
