Suning

Exactly 12 months ago I wrote this post. To some degree the fact that Suning has been restricted from making a superstar signing has been beneficial. Under Walter Sabatini’s guidance Inter instead made some purchases over the two Mercato’s to fill in some holes in the team; namely at fullback and center back. Now Piero [...]

As our focus in firmly on the Mercato, and who will Inter sign this summer, there is an interesting battle behind the scenes involving Suning and former owner Erick Thohir. Thohir, who still has the title of President, still owns 30% of Inter and he wants to sell. But Suning are not interested in meeting [...]

Inter hope their Chinese connection through Jiangsu Suning can give them the upper hand for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Dembele. The Belgium international turns 31 next month and is aware that this could be his last big contract, and is looking to get as lucrative an offer as possible. Juventus, Napoli and Inter have all [...]

You would think that securing Champions League football, escalator contracts in sponsorship deals and selling Geoffrey Kondogbia for €25m, all positive moves, would be backed by a commitment from Suning to invest in the squad this summer. But it looks like once again, Suning’s words and actions will be two different things as Luciano Spalletti [...]

Zhang Jindong said on Tuesday that Inter’s return to Champions League football was just the “first step” in their plan to return the Italian team to past glory. “First of all, I want to congratulate you all for this great achievement!” Zhang wrote in an open letter to Inter that was published on the club’s [...]

Steven Zhang, the son of Inter owner Jindong Zhang, says Luciano Spalletti staying is “not even a question” and “it’s the same” for Mauro Icardi. The Nerazzurri dramatically secured Champions League qualification on the final day of the Serie A season, winning 3-2 at Lazio to finish above the Biancocelesti thanks to their head-to-head record.

Mercato: Suning Cries Poverty To Sabatini

I wrote over the weekend how that Inter technical coordinator Walter Sabatini was headed to China to persuade Sunnig to release Ramires and also get some much needed funds to reinforce the squad during the January transfer window. According to FCInterNews.it, Sabatini that sporting director Piero Ausilio have been told by Inter owner Jindong Zhang [...]

Inter’s six game winless streak has seen them slump to third, two points ahead of Roma who have a game in hand, and been bounced out of the Coppa Italia by AC Milan. Alarm bells are ringing from Milan to Nanjing as Inter’s season, which promised so much 45 days ago, threatens to go up [...]

Zanetti: Suning Offer Guarantees For Success

Javier Zanetti has reassured Inter fans that Suning Group offer guarantees for success and is ignoring Milan’s “very different” path. In a wide-ranging, second part of his interview with Gazzetta dello Sport on Wednesday, Zanetti explained the various initiatives that Inter had embarked on under Suning Group and the reasons behind them. “Three years as [...]

Steven Zhang of Suning Group promises “Inter’s transfer market isn’t over here” as “we’ll reinforce the team further”. Matias Vecino will take his Nerazzurri medical today, joining Milan Skriniar and Borja Valero as Inter’s summer signings. In addition, the son of Suning’s owner Zhang Jindong has confirmed that the spending will continue. “Regardless of the [...]
