More Investors Lining Up Ahead of Possible Inter Sale

Finnish billionaire Thomas Zilliacus wouldn’t be the only one vying to acquire Inter if the Zhang family decided to give up the club. Some Saudi families and the American fund Silver Lake are poking around too. The latter was rumored to be keen on a minority stake in the recent past. Their representatives refused to comment on the chatter at the time, TuttoSport informs (via Tuttomercatoweb).

Investcorp has also been recently tipped to go after Inter ahead of the May 2024 deadline, when Suning will have to pay back a €400M loan to Oaktree. They used the side as collateral. To further complicate the picture, the fund has joined other borrowers in a lawsuit about the outstanding debts of the conglomerate.

Zilliacus once again voiced his intentions to the press as he spoke with Helsigin Sanomat (via Calciomercato).

“I want to buy Inter through my company XXI Century Football Capital and with Jassim Bin Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jaber Al Thani’s inner circle. We got in touch to share our resources on Monday. The dialogue with Steven Zhang and Suning will happen behind closed doors. The result will be known in due time. They want to sell, but only to somebody who really aims at making Inter even stronger. Our final valuation of the outfit is €1B.”
