Former Juventus and Chelsea striker Pierluigi Casiraghi says Erick Thohir's takeover bid is a sign of the times. The Indonesian billionaire is in talks to buyout Inter from Massimo Moratti.

Casiraghi told Tuttosport: "I think what is wearing off is that kick felt by people who invest with passion, which I am very sorry to see.

"I understand that now you have to be careful with the balance sheets and therefore this is all a bit for those who have new wealth.

"As they say, we must keep pace with the times."
