It is possible that Inter Milan’s current jersey sponsor, Pirelli, can get replaced with its newest Chinese partnership.
Inter Milan is set to receive $100 million (USD) from Evergrande’s electric car brand, Hengda Hengchi. Evergrande is a very successful Real Estate Company in China.
After news of the partnership hit the internet, people have begun to create mock-ups of what jerseys would look like under the new deal.
The partnership is very new, so there are no official announcements of a jersey change. However, the contract with Pirelli expires in 2021. When that happens, we would assume the sponsor paying 100 million dollars would get first dibs!
If the company does end up taking the front spot of the jersey, it is unlikely that this will be the exact jersey. Most mock-ups are of the Evergrande Group logo and not the Hengda Hengchi brand.
Nonetheless, it is still very strange to see a Chinese company on an Italian teams jersey. Pirelli has been the current sponsor since 1995.
