Rebranding just the latest Inter change

The rebranding will be just the latest change for Inter, who have been completely transformed since winning the Treble in 2010.

The Nerazzurri are set to unveil a new logo and club crest in March, following in the footsteps of Juventus and Roma.

This club was on top of the world in 2010, winning the Scudetto, Champions League, Coppa Italia and the Club World Cup.

The President at the time was Massimo Moratti, whose father Angelo had already owned the club from 1955 to 1968.

Massimo Moratti sold up to Indonesian investor Erick Thohir in 2013, the first foreign President of the club called Internazionale.

That spell lasted just three years, before Chinese company Suning Holdings Group bought out Thohir, with Zhang Jindong as the patron.

His son, Steven Zhang, is now the President of Inter, with Treble-winner Javier Zanetti as the Vice-President.

In 2016, Suning were one of several Chinese companies investing in football clubs all over the world, part of a trend for widening their portfolio into soccer.

However, times have changed and the COVID-19 pandemic along with limits placed on investing overseas by the Chinese Government saw the funds dry up.

Inter are now in advanced negotiations to sell at least some of the shares to BC Partners, with other companies also interested.

With the logo change in March too, it looks like the end of yet another era for Inter.

Their constant transformation was on the field too, as since Jose Mourinho won the Treble in 2010, there have been 12 different coaches on the bench.

That includes Stefano Vecchi, who had three matches as a caretaker manager in 2016-17.
