Football has been disrupted in the last week by the acquisition of Newcastle by the Saudi fund PIF. A new giant threatens the Premier and all of Europe. Well, the matter does not stop there. This same Saudi fund is interested in also taking over Inter Milan. From Italy they already assure that there has been a meeting and that the Italian club has a price. Inter is coming from winning Serie A, it won’t come cheap.
The Saudi fund, controlled by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, together with PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media, has now set a goal for Serie A. And it is not just any club, it is a historic Calcio. If 350 million euros have been paid for Newcastle, for Inter it would come to pay 1,000 million, according to the information published by the Libero newspaper.
In Italy they already assure that there would have been a meeting between the parties in Milan in mid-September, on the occasion of the Champions League match against Real Madrid. The Zhang family would be willing to sell the Nerazzurri club to the PIF sovereign wealth fund. In this meeting, the amount of € 1,000 million would have already been signed.
In 2018 Steven Zhang’s life took a turn. At just 26 years old, he became the youngest president in the history of Inter Milan, one of the most important clubs in European football. Three years later, he aspires to something bigger for his club, and he knows that this happens with a big injection of money. In recent months the economic difficulties of the Suning group and the Zhang family caused several rumors on unpaid wages and the imminent sale of heavyweights. Not everything was rosy. This summer great players like Achraf or Lukaku came out, the latter being highly criticized by the Tifosi.
If this agreement were to take place, Inter would become too great a threat to Juventus, Milan or Roma. With all the financial resources at your fingertips, your growth would be unstoppable. The sporting level, as it has already happened with Newcastle, would be the first to monopolize the spotlight. Galactic transfers starting with the bench. The arrival of Mohammed bin Salman to Italy will bring great movements, that is assured.
