Italian journalist Marco Barzaghi has stressed that Marc Lasry invests in teams to win and he did that with the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.
Speaking whilst on his YouTube channel, via FCInter1908, Marco Barzaghi addressed the fact that Moroccan-American entrepreneur Marc Lasry has been linked with buying either a minority share in Inter or potentially the entire club from the Suning family.
He explained that there has been a lot of recent interest in the club as it has become increasingly clear that Suning are actually open to selling Inter to protect their other financial interests.
“The ownership’s decision to effectively put Inter up for sale has attracted the interest of several possible investors, who want to see the club’s accounts. Listen well: from our sources there would be a series of examinations of the accounts, of due diligence, underway.
“Several investors have asked through Raine Group for the opportunity to see the accounts and begin due diligence. There are four important parties involved.”
He then spoke specifically about Marc Lasry who is the founder and CEO of Avenue Capital Group and is also the co-owner of 2021 NBA champions Milwaukee Bucks.
Marco Barzaghi was keen to point out that someone like Marc Lasry does not buy a club to then not wun trophies.
“Among them, we have given the advance notice of a possible venture led by Marc Lasry, founder of Avenue Capital, who manages more than $10 billion and has personal wealth of $1.8 billion.
“His partner, Wes Edens, who could be involved in the operation, has a personal wealth of $5 billion, but more importantly is part of the Fortress fund, which is something of an imposing one, with some $50 billion under management.
“Lasry invests to win, as he did for the Bucks in the NBA. A lot is moving around Inter, waiting for the end of the public debate on the stadium.”
