Unlike Premier League clubs, Serie A sides are a bit more strapped for cash, which is why the search for investors is always on.

One of those could be Sheikh Jassim, whom Manchester United fans will know very well from his attempt to buy the Old Trafford club from the Glazers.

The Qatari banker seemingly came close to achieving his goal, but ultimately failed, and he could now, according to La Repubblica, be set to have a chat about Inter Milan.

The newspaper look at the situation from both Milan sides, and point out that current Inter owner, Steven Zhang, has not returned to Italy from China ‘since June’.

That’s where Sheikh Jassim comes in, as he could move onto another club after his Manchester United bid, because the ‘hypothesis of a negotiation with the Saudi fund PIF’ for a share in Inter Milan is ‘flanked by the interest’ of Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani (his full name).

Zhang is currently dealing with some lawsuits in Hong Kong and ‘grappling’ with the repayment of almost €400m to the American Oaktree fund, and there have been ‘feeble denials’ about a sale to Saudi investors.

However, they have been ‘paired with those’ of Sheikh Jassim being involved in talks after his failure to buy Manchester United, where he lost out to Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

Therefore, it seems there are murmurs that he still wants to get involved with football, and could be having some meetings soon, but it just won’t be for the Old Trafford side.
