Some media sources are claiming Inter President Erick Thohir has contacted Ajax manager Frank De Boer.
The story emerged on Radio Deejay and has spread, added to the stories in today’s Tuttosport and Corriere dello Sport alleging problems between Thohir and former patron Massimo Moratti.
According to this rumour, Indonesian investor Thohir was impressed by Ajax’s Champions League showing and believes De Boer is the right Coach to lead his Inter.
This would mean sacking current boss Walter Mazzarri at the end of the season to bring in a more ‘international’ profile for the club.
There is precious little evidence to suggest there is truth in the report, particularly as only a few weeks ago Thohir publicly thanked Moratti for choosing Mazzarri.
The Nerazzurri have slipped down the standings after three consecutive Serie A stalemates.
