In a bid to grow their fixed income, Inter Milan will replace Pirelli, their current shirt sponsor, with an unnamed Chinese company starting with the 2021/22 season, according to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport

The Italian club's revenue grew by 20 per cent to €417 million last season, double the revenue at the time of Chinese billionaire Zhang Jindong's acquisition of the club in 2016. 

Though the firm's identity remains a mystery, the deal is estimated to be worth between €25 million and €30 million annually.
