Raine Group finds a serious buyer from the Middle East for Inter

American investment bank Raine Group has reportedly found a Middle Eastern fund that is serious about buying Inter from the Zhang family.

According to Italian media outlets Tuttosport and Corriere dello Sport, an unidentified fund from the Middle East is ready to buy the Nerazzurri under the terms set by the current owners, who want over €1 billion for the club.

The Zhang family still has to repay the 275 million euro loan to Oaktree by May 20, 2024, a figure that rises to almost 400 euros if the 12% interest is calculated, or refinance it at double interest rates.

Talks between the parties are progressing well and Raine is confident a deal can be reached in the coming weeks and months. A concrete offer is expected soon that will allow things to move forward.

Suning Group could still decide to keep Inter, perhaps adding a new minority partner instead, allowing them to take advantage of the new Champions League format and upcoming changes to the Club World Cup.
