Suning Group, who took over Inter Milan in 2016, are reportedly planning to build a new headquarters at the club in an attempt to develop the club’s infrastructure and youth systems, according to Football Italia.
With Inter’s resurgence as a European giant already taking shape, this may be the next step in sustaining the club’s position as title challengers.
It is believed that the Chinese company have been in contact with Invimit, the asset management company of the Ministry of Economy and Finance, which deals with urban construction. The construction is likely to take place in the Piazza d’Armi area, and would cover 450,000m2 of land.
There are reportedly plans being made for a main headquarters, as well as new training centres for the Nerazzurri youth teams.
Suning are willing to invest around €100m in the new project which would be seen as bringing the club forward along with the rest of Europe’s heavy investment. They hope to settle a deal by the end of this year, or early in 2018.
Inter Milan currently sit in third, level on points with second place Juventus. After last season’s disappointing seventh placed finish, the club will be delighted with their superb start to the season.
This project for investment at the core of the club show’s the owner’s ambition for Inter, who will be looking to return to the glory days of European silverware.
Having fallen down the peck order since Jose Mourinho left the club in 2010, they will be looking to maintain their resurgence this season, but also in the future which is what this project is aiming to achieve.
