There are reports tension is growing between new Inter President Erick Thohir and Massimo Moratti.
Both the Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport have the story on their front pages this morning, claiming there is a sudden ‘deep freeze’ in their rapport.
Indonesian investor Thohir bought out 70 per cent of the club from Moratti in November, though the original patron still has a seat on the Board of Directors.
According to today’s newspapers, there is a split emerging within the club between those who wanted Moratti to have more of a say in the running of Inter and those who expect Thohir to bankroll an impressive transfer campaign.
Instead, Thohir seems set to sell one of the Nerazzurri’s big names to fund the January transfer strategy.
Andrea Ranocchia, Fredy Guarin and to a lesser extent Samir Handanovic are all on the market for the right price.
It would frustrate fans who expected the Indonesian magnate to flood the club coffers with his own cash rather than sell stars to bring in others.
