The situation at Inter shows no signs of improvement as Steven Zhang’s Suning Group continue to hang onto the club, despite constant interest from elsewhere.
Zhang, who hasn’t been in Italy since last October, was the only Serie A President to pay his players in installments last November and December, as revealed by the FIGC, thus highlighting the severity of the situation.
The Chinese businessman is said to be doing his utmost to keep hold of the club despite interest from BC Partners – a British investment consortium – amongst others and is even looking for financial aid in order to do so, according to Tuttosport.
If that fails, then the Chinese group will raise their valuation of the club once more to €1 billion to test the resolve of the British group, who are said to be coming up short by €200 million with their offer.
While things in the boardroom are uncertain, at least the on-field situation is looking good for the Nerazzurri who sit pretty at the top of Serie A ahead of Sunday’s derby della Madonnina with Milan, who are presently just a point behind.
