The Italian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce vp Fu Yixiang conceded an interview to Il Giorno to talk about Suning leading Inter, starting from the idea to purchase Torre Velasca: "I knew that on March 29th Antonio Percassi had been in Nanjing to talk to Suning top management. I know that there are so many things to be discussed, there will be collaboration not only from a sporting point of view".
We are not talking about football or football academies, but about buying a prestigious building.
"True, but from here to say that everything will come to fruition it's far. I do not know if Unipol wants to sell, even though Zhang Jindong is a big businessman and has enormous economic potential".
You said times ago that Suning is a big company, it will not fail to invest.
" Suning is one of China biggest brand, comparable to MediaWorld in Italy. Zhang Jindong has decided to invest in football to expand his business in Europe, entrusted his son Zhang junior to the studio of some realities but realizes that he has to invest with intelligence, this is true for Inter and all other sectors, including real estate, and even if the results do not come in the short term, he will continue to make his investments. The stadium? An idea".
Is not there a risk that sports disillusion can take away enthusiasm?
"I do not think so. I know that Zhang makes long-term decisions and loves doing things right. He will stay in Italy to bring Inter back to top. Suning does not need immediate revenues from Inter. It has already canceled the debts, now wants to make Inter attractive in the eyes of the sponsors, but at the same time tries to exploit the brand of his companies".
