The owners of D.C. United are making moves but they are happening overseas.
On Sunday, United Managing General Partner Jason Levien completed his takeover of Premier League club Swansea City. Levien now owns the majority of shares in the club with Steve Kaplan, who he previously worked with at the NBA's Memphis Grizzlies. The deal is still subject to approval of the Premier League
Levien is a part of D.C. United's ownership group along with Erick Thohir, who appears to be making an ownership move of his own.
Thohir appears set to announce on Monday that he will be selling his majority stake in Inter Milan according to multiple reports.
He will be selling his shares in the club to China retail giant Suning Commercial Group. Thorir purchased his share in the club in October 2013.
Thohir, along with partner Jason Levien, purchased a majority stake in D.C. United from Will Chang on July 10, 2012. Since that date, Levien has served as the club’s managing partner, while Chang remains a general partner in the club.
Swansea finished 12th in the Premier League last season and have been a part of the English top flight since they were promoted prior to the 2011-12 season. They won the Capital One Cup in 2012-13.
Inter Milan finished fourth in Serie A last season, completing their most successful season since 2010-11.
