Recent events indicate that Pirelli may still be Inter’s main sponsor after Nerazzurri CEO Micheal Bolingbroke had indicated otherwise.
“In June we’ll celebrate 20 years with Pirelli as a partner and as far as I know it is the longest partnership in footballing history,” Bolingbroke said.
“Not even the one between Liverpool and Carlsberg lasted as long as this. It seems impossible to imagine ourselves without Pirelli, but everything comes to an end.”
But on Wednesday morning the President of the Pirelli Group, Marco Tronchetti Provera addressed the issue on the sidelines of the European Corporate Governance Conference.
“There is a contract that lasts another two years,” he said.
He also told the media that Pirelli and Inter are still negotiating: “The deal, however is in progress.”
