I'm unaware of anything happened in the last 6 months which would challenge that.

Yes, the entire inflation thingy and unfavorable economic evironment have put many weak companies under scrunity and many are gonna face insolvency soon. But other than that, investors still largely don't care about profitability. If anything, covid has become the perfect excuse for any kind of losses a company may be making. The money flow to investing is drying up a bit, but where it flows, it's flowing to companies with strong growth prospect and not profitability.

Increasing interest rates = investors are less risky with their money to generate the same returns = PPE ratios are dropping quickly. The era of QE is (starting to?) end and that is gonna drive more focus on actual cashflow and positive returns

There's plenty, plenty of cash around still.

According to Il Sole, apart from Goldman Sachs Suning have also turned to Raine Group for the sale of the club. They were also involved in Chelsea sale.

On the field, I would say Inter is as competitive if not more.

If the roles were reverse, I dont think so. Hypotheitically if Man utd was in the same financial state and their management of the club.

Well this is beginning to age terribly within one month.

Inter v Man (on and off the field)

Marco Barzaghi addressed the fact that Moroccan-American entrepreneur Marc Lasry has been linked with buying either a minority share in Inter or potentially the entire club from the Suning family.

He explained that there has been a lot of recent interest in the club as it has become increasingly clear that Suning are actually open to selling Inter to protect their other financial interests.

“The ownership’s decision to effectively put Inter up for sale has attracted the interest of several possible investors, who want to see the club’s accounts. Listen well: from our sources there would be a series of examinations of the accounts, of due diligence, underway.
“Several investors have asked through Raine Group for the opportunity to see the accounts and begin due diligence. There are four important parties involved.”

He then spoke specifically about Marc Lasry who is the founder and CEO of Avenue Capital Group and is also the co-owner of 2021 NBA champions Milwaukee Bucks.

Marco Barzaghi was keen to point out that someone like Marc Lasry does not buy a club to them not win trophies.

“Among them, we have given the advance notice of a possible venture led by Marc Lasry, founder of Avenue Capital, who manages more than $10 billion and has personal wealth of $1.8 billion.
His partner, Wes Edens, who could be involved in the operation, has a personal wealth of $5 billion, but more importantly is part of the Fortress fund, which is something of an imposing one, with some $50 billion under management.
Lasry invests to win, as he did for the Bucks in the NBA. A lot is moving around Inter, waiting for the end of the public debate on the stadium.”

Moratti said he hopes Zhang doesn't sell the club because things will get even worse with a new ownership

Well he isn't wrong if the club is sold to an investment firm it could very well be worse.

Well that is going to be the case most definitely. No one is going to buy this club and fix things over night. A sugar daddy buyer is a pipe dream not worth thinking about.

Don't need a sugar daddy but need proper owners and that's not an investment firm. Something like the friedkins at roma would do the trick.
