Shirt sponsor Pirelli says it can help Inter sign Lionel Messi. But the buck lies with President Steven Zhang. “We can’t do anything meaningful.”
When asked if Pirelli could help the Nerazzurri like Fiat did in contributing to Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus transfer, CEO Marco Tronchetti Provera admitted the COVID-19 crisis made such support difficult.
“Honestly, at a time like this, we’re unable to invest in sports more than we are, between Formula 1, the America’s Cup and Inter,” Tronchetti Provera told Gr Parlamento.
“We have to ask Steven Zhang to make an effort himself. We can help, but we can’t do anything meaningful.”
