Inter Milan will undergo a name change, switching from Football Club Internazionale Milano to simply Inter Milano.

The move, designed to reflect a closer connection with Italy’s capital and give the club a clearer and more modern global identity, is planned for March 9 – exactly 113 years after the club came into existence, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

A new crest comprising the letters ‘I M’ will also be unveiled – coming after Juventus opted to change their badge in 2017 – with Romelu Lukaku among those to have modelled the new look.

The original logo was created by the club’s founder in 1908, illustrator Giorgio Muggiani.

The aim is to go for a more minimalistic, stylish design in keeping with their long-time rivals.

The change has been a while in the making and is set to go ahead despite monetary pressures facing the club due to the Covid-19 pandemic as the Italian giants look to take on new investors, with British private equity firm BC Partners among those being considered amid unrest as wage payments to players have not been met on several occasions.

The Evergrande Group, who are China’s second-largest property developer, could potentially sponsor Inter to the tune of €30million (£27m) per year, according to Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset, significantly more than what Pirelli are paying at the moment (€11m, £10m).

In a period of great upheaval for Inter, Evergrande are also on pole to replace Pirelli as the team’s main sponsor, while the San Siro is set to be demolished and replaced by a brand new stadium on the site, although no firm date has been put forward for when ‘San Siro II’ will be ready.

On the pitch, Antonio Conte’s men are in contention to win their first Serie A title for 11 years after a 2-0 win over Juventus saw them move level on points with ground-sharers AC, although Stefano Pioli’s side play on Monday night at Cagliari.

Cristiano Ronaldo had an early effort correctly ruled out for offside before Arturo Vidal broke the deadlock against his former club with his first goal for Inter, heading home after 12 months from Nicolo Barella’s right-wing cross.
