Moratti reportedly set to be handed influential role.
Serie A giants Inter are set for a €300m takeover as Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir nears an agreement with current owner Massimo Moratti.
While negotiations have been on-going for some months, it is understood that the latest reports in Italy claim that an agreement is close, and that Moratti is now willing to give up 75% of the shares in the club.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Moratti family will meet with Thohir and his representatives at the weekend to finally give them the go-ahead to complete a takeover bid.
The prospective owner is set to pay close to €300m to take a majority ownership in the club, and has promised various improvements upon his arrival including both to the playing squad as well as investing in a new stadium for the Nerazzurri.
Inter have considered the possibility of a new arena for some time, but it is believed that Thohir will make it a priority as he is likely to pump substantial funds into the Italian giants.
While Moratti would be giving up ownership of the club that has been in his family for decades, it is understood that Thohir is willing to hand him an operational role at the club on completion of the deal.
Gazzetta believe that the wealthy Indonesian businessman is hopeful of exploiting Moratti’s knowledge as he embarks on his first investment in football, but his arrival undoubtedly ushers in an exciting new era at Inter which is likely to force a few anxious looks amongst their Serie A rivals.
