Investcorp have refused to deny interest in buying Inter Milan.

The Bahraini fund have been linked with a €1.3bn move for the Nerazzurri.

Local financial newspaper Iqtisad Al Sharq asked for an official comment from the group, with a response soon offered: “We neither confirm nor deny the news”.

The source also raises two facts in connection to the story: Investcorp’s strong propensity for investments in sports, which also include cycling and other football clubs (and an attempt for Milan), and the presence among its shareholders of the Mubadala fund owned by Sheikh Mansour.

The latter is a 20% shareholder.
