Indonesian magnate denies bid for 80% of Serie A club

Soccer: No deal soon for Inter stake, Moratti says

Milan, July 25 - Inter Chairman Massimo Moratti said Friday that a deal with Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir over the purchase of a stake in the Serie A club was not imminent. "We won't be shaking hands in coming days," said Moratti. Media and sports magnate Thohir and Moratti had a meeting on Thursday. Thohir, who leaves Milan Saturday, denied he was offering to buy an 80% stake in the three-time European champions and did not say whether he wanted a majority or minority of the Serie A club. The Indonesian had reportedly offered over 300 million euros for a stake. Thohir already has a presence in the world of sport as part owner of Major League Soccer club DC United and the Philadelphia 76ers NBA basketball team. A deal over the sale of the stake may be sealed this weekend, according to reports.
