Iran News - - SPORTS -

MI­LAN (Dis­patches) - Hong Kong in­vestors are ready to pur­chase In­done­sian busi­ness­man Erick Tho­hir’s 31 per­cent stake in Ital­ian club In­ter Mi­lan, ac­cord­ing to re­ports in Italy on Satur­day.

The Chi­nese Sun­ing Com­merce Group pur­chased a con­trol­ling 68.55 per­cent stake in In­ter in 2016.

Tho­hir had re­mained as pres­i­dent with 31 per­cent, but Gazzetta Dello Sport and Sky Sports Italia are re­port­ing that his stake is close to pass­ing into the hands of an un­named fund in Hong Kong.

Sky Italia said the fund is close to the Sun­ing Hold­ings Group of In­ter Mi­lan’s ma­jor­ity share­holder Zhang Jin­dong. Ne­go­ti­a­tions are be­lieved to be at an ad­vanced stage and could be fi­nalised within weeks. Gazzetta Dello Sport re­ported “the op­er­a­tion was well un­der­way but not at the point of sig­na­tures”. In­ter Mi­lan have not won a Serie A ti­tle since 2010 when Jose Mour­inho coached them to an his­toric tre­ble in­clud­ing the Cham­pi­ons League.

The club are cur­rently third in Serie A -- 14 points be­hind lead­ers Ju­ven­tus.
