Reports have returned indicating that Inter are on the verge of agreeing to sell a 15 per cent stake in shares to a Chinese consortium.
Reports first emerged over the summer that a group of Asian-based investors had agreed to take a minority shareholding in the Nerazzurri, as part of wider plans to help finance a new ground for the club.
The Gazzetta dello Sport belief that the club are now close to finalising the deal for the Chinese to come on board, albeit with a change in who is leading the consortium, in a bid to speed up the process bureaucratically.
It is believed that a series of meetings between each party’s legal staff will resolve any outstanding issues that have so far slowed down the move with a view to completion by early 2013.
