Inter Milan could have a new chief executive in the coming months as reports in Italy suggest soon-to-be former Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta will take the same position with the Nerazzurri.

Marotta, who’s contract with the Old Lady ends at the end of the week, was initially approached by FIGC president Gabriele Gravina to take a position with the national team, however that approach failed as Marotta preferred to take over another club and not the national team. reported that Marotta has been in frequent contact with the Zhang family — primary owners of Inter Milan — and that those conversations have been fruitful.

“There is an excellent feeling between the Nerazzurri owners and Marotta and the agreement to challenge Juventus together has practically been reached,” the report said.

The report also suggested that Marotta will assume his duties with Inter in January.

During his time as CEO of Juventus, the club won seven Serie A titles and Marotta was one of the reasons Juventus landed Cristiano Ronaldo during the last off-season.

Marotta’s contract with Juventus expires this week and he will also be removed from Juventus’ board of directors. In addition to being the club’s CEO, Marotta also served as Juventus’ general manager, but reports suggest all contracts between Marotta and Juventus will be terminated without issue, allowing him to join Inter.
