The Leeds United owner was pictured with his Nerazzuri opposite number on social media.
The Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani has left Whites fans guessing over his message to Erick Thohir.
Thohir, the minority owner of Inter Milan and director of Oxford United, shared a photo of the pair holding up a Leeds shirt on Instagram.
Radrizzani later tweeted the image, and declared that he was “looking forward to have you at Elland Road next year”.
What the Italian meant by that, however, remains unclear – although the following Leeds fans have their suspicions:

Probably hosting Inter Milan in a pre-season friendly I’d imagine.— Cockney White (@cockney_white) November 22, 2018
Leeds have this week announced plans to play Manchester United in Australia next pre-season, so a friendly with Inter (or indeed Oxford) would make sense.
As well as football, Radrizzani and Thohir share a communications background, with the pair operating as chairman and founder of Eleven Sports and chairman and founder of Mahaka Media, respectively.
The Indonesian is also a former owner of DC United, of America’s Major League Soccer, and the Philadelphia 76ers National Basketball Association franchise.
