Corsera confirms - LionRock Capital, investment fund that is buying Thohir's shares, will invest on the transfer market and new stadium
The Corriere della Sera confirms the news reported this morning by the Gazzetta dello Sport on the entry of LionRock Capital as an investment fund to replace Erick Thohir. The newspaper also emphasizes a fundamental aspect of the future of Inter: the stadium.
“In a few days, the announcement of this sale should arrive, very well paid by the investment fund: 150 million euros. LionRock is a private equity fund known to Suning, so much so that it holds a stake in Suning Sports. A new partner that is liked by the owner of Inter with which a fruitful collaboration will start. LionRock has availability to invest, both on the transfer market and for the new stadium. The new San Siro is a hot topic and you can expect news already next month. By the end of February, we will understand the future of that new stadium. Remodeling and fixing up the current stadium is no longer the favorite option. The chances of building a new stadium increase each day, in an area next to the Meazza which in turn could be converted into a residential area: a bit like what happen in London at the old Highbury Stadium, demolished to make room for houses and a park.”
