Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti says he can work with Indonesian billionaire Erick Thohir.
Thohir is expected to take a controlling stake in the club in the coming days.
After a board meeting yesterday, Moratti told waiting reporters: "Is this my last Board meeting? No, it's not. It seems to me you already know enough about this, as I read things in the papers that even I didn't know
"In reality there are negotiations going on and it involves people with their own sensibilities. In any case, there is fondness between us, but there are still some aspects to clarify.
"It can be a new beginning, but I will continue to collaborate in one form or another. I see this as an intention to build something important that doesn't exclude one person or another.
"It's like when there are two parents who both want what is best for their son: that's the direction we're going in."
