Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir has made a €280m offer for an 80 per cent share in Inter, according to reports.
Renowned journalist Marco Bellinazzo of Ore 24 has claimed that the 42-year-old entrepreneur made the offer to President Massimo Moratti on Wednesday, with the club expected to make a decision within the next 48 hours.
Thohir has shares in NBA side the Philadelphia 49ers as well as MLS outfit DC United and is President of the Southeast Asia Basketball Association.
It is understood that the Nerazzurri are looking for a cash injection to boost the squad’s competitiveness next season as well as investment to fund a new stadium.
What is unclear however, is whether Moratti would be willing to give up such a large stake in the club he inherited from his father Angelo.
