Inter: Zhang in, Marotta next?

Steven Zhang will be named Inter’s new President on Friday and could reportedly be joined on the club’s board by Beppe Marotta.

Zhang [pictured, left] will be sworn in during Inter’s annual shareholders’ meeting, bringing an end to Erick Thohir’s five-year tenure.

However, the Indonesian had been marginalised by Suning Group since its takeover in 2016 and is ready to sell his 31 percent stake in the Nerazzurri.

The 26-year-old, who will become the Beneamata’s youngest-ever President, spent the last two years acting as Suning’s figurehead for the club.

Gazzetta dello Sport also reports it is ‘becoming increasingly clear’ that the Chinese will be accompanied by Marotta.

The newspaper explains that while the CEO has yet to resolve his contract with Juventus, the intention is for him to ‘help Zhang grow into his role’, similar to his work with Andrea Agnelli at Juve.
