Soccer: Thohir not in Italy for Inter talks

Milan, August 16 - Erick Thohir, the Indonesian magnate eyeing a share of Inter, is not in Milan and will not go there for another two weeks, Thohir told ANSA Friday. Reports had been circulating that he arrived in Italy Thursday, presumably to continue talks about the purchase of a stake in the Serie A club. Thohir said that his brother, who is currently in Milan on vacation, had apparently been mistaken for him. According to media reports, Thohir has offered up to 300 million euros for an 80% stake in the three-time European champions, something he denies. A deal was expected late last month when he met with Inter Chairman Massimo Moratti, but negotiations have been slowgoing. 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.
