Thohir, who can count on a personal wealth of 300m and also owns Indonesian football club Persib Bandung and part-owns NBA franchise the Philadelphia 76ers, has denied these suggestions.
"I want to clarify that both Inter and DC United are part of my football 'portfolio'," Thohir has told reporters in Indonesia.
"These resources are both an integral part of my investment in the sports world overseas and I am aiming to grow the brands of both the clubs
"I deny then, without misunderstanding, the rumours in the media about the possible sale of DC United.
"My commitment and my dedication is to both clubs and is concentrated on producing results for both, on and off the field."
