    Suning is looking to sell a stake of up to 40% in the Milan club valued at around 500 million euros, one of the sources said.

    The source said BC Partners would be more of a financial investor and Suning, which would continue managing the club, would be able to buy back the stake in the future.

    I'm fed up with these investing groups.

    I want a proper sugar daddy. I want us to be so rich and be able to buy anyone we want. Fuck fifa penalties, fuck ffp.

    I want us to be rich.


    All these investing groups are just ultra mega fails. Always. Football as a whole is a business, but a football team can not be run as such. You need blind investing for several years.

    Right now, there is alot of uncertainty and it is hard to know exactly what is going on with our owners. Are they looking for minority investors? Are they looking to sell the the club altogether? Are there other interested partners other than BC Partners? I read this morning that there is supposedly interest from a Swedish private equity fund (EQT) as well another group named Arctos. Who are these other groups?

    In one way, I am worried because we do not know what we are going to get with new owners. The uncertainty makes me anxious. But at the same time, there is no way we can continue with Suning because what happens at the club financially would largely be determined by the Chinese Communist Party. Using a football related analogy, that scenario would be akin to playing each game in Serie A, Europe and the Coppa with ten men and is certainly not how anyone would want Inter to be run.

    Perhaps what is really disappointing for me as an Inter supporter is the timing. Here we are in second place in the Championship, competing with Milan for the Scudetto. With a couple of additional reinforcements in this transfer window, we could have gone into the second half of the season with greater confidence. But everything has come to a dead standstill and I cannot help but feel that if we do not reinforce in the Winter transfer window and win the Scudetto this season our long drought will continue for years to come.

    This is my worry too. At this moment, this season looks like the one when we NEED to win because there's no certainties there will be another season with this high chances for the Scudetto in the foreseeable future. That could change after the sale, but at this point we don't know. If there gonna be cost cuts in the summer, we can say goodbye to the next Scudetto challenges, because Juve will get stronger in the summer (specially if they can handle Dybala issue).

    If only we could make some reinforcement, even small ones, it would help a lot.

    There was even a board meeting to discuss how Inter are going to pay wages of July and August in order to avoid points deduction. There's no chance we're going to sign anyone in January.

    I guess it was good while it lasted boys! With the current news that I'm reading about an imminent takeover from BC Partners, I'm afraid we will most likely be back to banter era and will never see any big spending deals like Hakimi or Lukaku.
    We're just going to settle for trash loan deals with an option to buy la Milan or Thohir era.

    Inter To Debut “Revolutionary New Logo”, Italian Media Claim

    Inter are expected to debut a revolutionary new club logo, following in the footsteps of Juventus, Italian media reports.

    The current Nerazzurri badge was designed by illustrator Giorgio Muggiani, one of the founders of the club, in 1908.

    Since then it has gone through only small changes with the basic elements remaining the same.

    A revolution is coming though, reports Tuttosport, with Inter set to adopt a new logo which will come as a shock to the system for fans.

    The move follows the decision by Juventus to rebrand their badge in 2017, moving away from their traditional shield to a minimalist design featuring to stylised Js.

    Inter’s move will be similarly bold, with the new logo to be part of a campaign called ‘I Am Milano’ which will be launched in March.

    The objective is a commercial one as the club looks to attract new sponsors, especially given Pirelli’s historic shirt sponsorship is coming to an end.
    This better be bullshit.

    Unfortunately it's not. Hopefully it's not some utter shit. Not sure if they will officially announce something or just let it out there ti gauge reactions. But it's going to be announced on our 113th birthday.

    Please don't fuck with the logo. Throughout our history, whenever we have fucked with our basic logo, the result has been terrible.




    IMO the current logo is our best ever design. Don't fuck with that.

    1978 is great but it shouldn't be our logo

    Any variation of the original emblem is welcome, but changing it to something garbage should not be acceptable.

    P..S. You don't want to see the leaked pictures

    There is no doubt that 1998 logo is the best one.

    Our leaked away kit for next season has a new logo; essentially a serpent that looks like a stray sperm. Hoping that's not the new club logo.

    I’m getting worried now that ADRossi is right and our new logo will be a sperm!!!

    113th birthday...unlucky for some I suppose!

    My favs in order are the present logo, 1998 then 1978 (would love to see this on a third kit).

    Suning might be out by March though so hopefully might not happen...

    I’d lose a lot of respect for our club if we merely copied jube’s rebranding and had a giant I as our new logo!
