Erick Thohir was elected as the new president of Inter Milan as he replaces Massimo Moratti who will now become the honorary chairman.

“I really want to thank my friend and new partner Massimo Moratti for the trust and support, and thank also my partners Rosan and Handy, who I’ve known for more than 20 years; I want also to thank our families. Most of all, thanks to our supporters all around the world and wherever I met them, on Twitter or personally,” said Thohir.

“This is a truly special day in my life. Inter is a magnificent story of passion, a tradition of winning and commitment to excellence.

Ever since the arrival of Antonio Valencia to Manchester United, Luis Nani has slowly been losing his place in the English club. It has now come to the point that Nani is spending more time in the sidelines than in the main team.

This has attracted the attention of Juventus and Inter Milan as they are interested in signing the Portuguese winger. New Inter owner Erick Thohir is looking to make an impact in Milan and signing a player of Nani’s calibre is exactly what the Indonesian businessman has in mind.

Juventus and Inter Milan are not only competing against each other in Serie A and fighting for Luis Nani but both are also in the pursuit of signing the Aleksandar Kolarov from Manchester City.

Aleksandar Kolarov signed for Manchester City back in 2010 as he made his move from Lazio into the English side.

The 28 years old Serbian defender used to be a 1st choice player for the defence of Manchester City but things are now taking a turn as Gael Clichy is taking his role as the preferred option of Manuel Pellegrini. This gives Juventus and Inter Milan the opportunity to make an offer for the former Lazio player.
