These are important days for the present and the future ofInter. Tonight Inzaghi’s team is playing in Empoli so as not to lose further ground from Milan, the first in the standings, tomorrow there is the shareholders’ meeting. Called to approve the 2020/2021 budget closed on 30 June last with a record deficit of 245.6 million euros. President Steven Zhang will be connected by videoconference from Nanjing in China and will confirm Suning’s intention to maintain control of the Nerazzurri club.
Two new directors were recently appointed to the Inter Board of Directors: Carlo Marchetti and Amedeo Carassai, agreed by the owners and Oaktree Capital Management. The latter is the US fund that has lent 275 million euros (to be repaid in three years) to Great Horizon, the subsidiary of Suning. Who in turn has pledged his shares of Inter (68.55%) and for now has turned in the coffers of the Nerazzurri club 80 of these 275 million euros.
Meanwhile, a group of managers from the London office of Oaktree are in Milan these days. As we read on the Gazzetta dello Sport, on Sunday evening they were in the tribune of honor in San Siro to see the match drawn with Juve. Then they visited the headquarters in Viale della Liberazione and the center training session in Appiano Gentile, always accompanied by the Nerazzurri managers.
