Inter Milan have received a lucrative shirt sponsorship proposal from an adult site as they prepare for the UEFA Champions League match against Manchester City next month in Istanbul.
After triumphing over their city rivals and stadium neighbors, AC Milan, with an impressive 3-0 aggregate scoreline, Inter Milan has reached the final for the first time since their victorious campaign in 2010.
Their formidable opponents, Manchester City, have displayed remarkable dominance, having defeated the 14-time champions Real Madrid with a convincing 5-1 aggregate scoreline in the other semi-final.
According to Goal, Nerazzurri have removed their main shirt sponsor DigitalBits after the cryptocurrency company failed to make any payment for this season.
Inter receive sponsorship offer
The black-and-blue side of Milan have played with blank shirts since the game against Lazio, which they won 3-1. They won both legs of the Champions League semi-final against Milan in the same way.
Simone Inzaghi’s men battled through an inconsistent season to reach the final of Europe’s most prestigious competition.
They are set to play at the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul with a blank shirt again, but an offer has arrived from an adult subscription company, as reported by Daily Star.
Their previous sponsorship was worth £75m, while the new offer is worth £80m, with an offer to be their sponsor until 2029. It remains to be seen whether the deal will be sanctioned.
AS Roma, who were also sponsored by the digital assets company, removed the brand and replaced it with SPQR, an old Roman abbreviation that means ‘Senatus Populusque Romanus’ or ”the Senate and People of Rome”.
Why Inter could win UCL
Sports Brief reported that a fans theory predicted Inter as UCL winner come June 3 in Istanbul despite Manchester City being the clear favourite.
Since Mario Mandzukic with Bayern Munich in 2013, a Croatian player has been on the winning side of the Champions League. Luka Modric won in 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2022. Mateo Kovacic won 3 with Real Madrid and with Chelsea in 2021.
Ivan Rakitic won with Barcelona in 2015, while Dejan Lovren won with Liverpool in 2019. Inter have midfielder Marcelo Brozovic in their team.
