Suning Commerce Group’s potential purchase of a stake in Inter

Date: 06 Apr 2016

Gazzetta dello Sport reported today that the Suning Commerce Group, which owns Chinese Super League outfit Jiangsu Suning, intends to buy a 20 per cent stake in Inter.

Nerazzurri President, Erick Thohir’s search for a fresh injection of cash from Asia into the club has been well publicised.

Despite yesterday’s claims by Moratti that he is ‘absolutely not selling shares’, the newspaper believes that 14 per cent (of the 20 per cent stake) will be made up of Thohir’s current shares and the remaining 6 per cent will be made up of former President Massimo Moratti’s.

The sale would bring in a figure of between €60-90m according to the outlet. However, Gazzetta also believes that Thohir is considering a sale of his majority share as plan B.
