Inter Milan, a renowned Italian Serie A, reached the final of the UEFA Champions League (UCL).
Inter Milan reached the final 13 years after the 2009-10 season, and is aiming for the championship again in 13 years. This isn’t Inter Milan fighting alone. All of Italy is fighting. This is because winning Inter Milan 13 years ago was the last Serie A title.
With Serie A teams performing well in the UCL this season and in the UEFA Europa League (UEL), hopes are growing that Italian football, which has been stagnant for a long time, is reviving. The climax of this anticipation could be Inter Milan’s UCL victory. Inter Milan will play the long-awaited final against England’s Manchester City on the 11th of next month.
However, in a situation where expectations were high, a shocking claim was made to ‘sell’ Inter Milan if they won the UCL. Shockingly, the man who made this claim is former Inter Milan owner Ernesto Pellegrini.
He argued through Italy’s ‘Sportiva’, “Steven Jean, the owner of Inter Milan, should consider selling the club if Inter Milan wins the UCL.”
He continued, “I don’t know how Steven Chang will behave when Inter Milan win the UCL. I will think about whether to sell the club or not. “he explained.스포츠토토
The rumor about the sale of Inter Milan has been around for two years. In fact, if you win the UCL top, there is a possibility that Chinese capital, which has no regrets anymore, will sell the club.
Zhang Jing-dong, chairman of the Chinese Suning Group, took over a stake in Inter Milan in 2018, and his son, Steven Zhang, took over as owner of Inter Milan. At that time, investment in European clubs by Chinese capital was booming.
But later, as the Chinese economy began to slow down and the national mood to invest in football faded, Chinese capital was eager to withdraw from European clubs. Therefore, Inter Milan also cannot rule out the possibility of a sale. Chinese media have also reported that the Suning Group is not interested in retaining ownership of Inter Milan.
