Weimin Sun, the vice president of SCG, spoke with Rai after the press conference: “Our target is to take Inter at the top of Italian and European football, and if Jiangsu’s players can help, we would be happy. Inter are not in a very good period, but this situation allowed us to join them in partnership.”
The Suning Group’s proposed investment in Inter could reportedly see Alex Teixeira arrive on loan.
The Chinese consortium confirmed today that they are in negotiations for a “strategic co-operation” with the Nerazzurri, with the conglomerate expected to buy around 20 per cent of the club.
According to Premium Sport, that could open up the possibility of a swap deal between the Beneamata and Jiangsu Suning, with Teixeira arriving on loan in exchange for Felipe Melo.
Teixeira joined the Chinese Superleague club from Shakhtar Donetsk in January in a deal worth around €50m.
Inter Coach Roberto Mancini has admitted that his side need to score more goals, so the attacking midfielder could be the ideal solution, having scored 26 goals in 25 games for Shakhtar before moving to China.
