China Railway denies report of buying stake in Inter Milan
Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- China Railway Construction Corp. (CRCC) on Friday denied media reports that it had reached an agreement with Inter Milan to buy the Italian football club's 15-percent stake.
"The company, its holding companies and its joint-stock companies have never engaged in negotiations with Inter Milan on stake purchases," CRCC said in a statement filed to the Shanghai Stock Exchange. However, the statement said the China Railway 15th Bureau Group, controlled by CRCC, was in talks with Inter Milan to build a new stadium at the San Donato Site. Recently, media reported that CRCC would buy a minority stake in Inter Milan to become the club's second-biggest shareholder, citing a circular on the club's website. (Xinhua)
