Inter were very nearly sold to BC Partners between February and March, according to a report in the Italian media today.

As per Tuttosport’s print edition, the Zhang family almost gave the green light for an €800 million deal to sell a majority stake to the British-based private equity fund.

Suning put the brakes on their sale when the European Super League project began taking shape, a competition which would have guaranteed Inter an immediate €350 million and a huge sum of future revenue too.

The Super League would have helped Suning turn their crisis at Inter around, but everything collapsed within 48 hours and now the Nerazzurri are in a worrying state of limbo.

According to the Turin-based paper, very few people at Appiano Gentile or in the club’s offices can see any sort of project behind Suning’s ideas at Inter.

Inter’s directors and players are not clear on where the club is headed now, while their agents are likely to grow tired of agreeing cheap deals for their clients.
