Few days ago, just before the EURO 2024 tournament happening in Germany kicked off, Inter Milan announced the contract renewal of their midfielder, Nicolo Barella and expectedly, it is believed that the club will soon make two more announcements.

More Details

For the club’s CEO Beppe Marotta, who also doubles as their president, the contract extensions for Simone Inzaghi and Lautaro Martinez are “virtually done.” Speaking to reporters recently, the Nerazzurri executive was very confident about the status of two key rounds of contract negotiations at the club.

For Barella, the 27-year-old has already put pen to paper on a new five-year deal, and the plan is to tie their captain down on a similar long-term extension. For their manager, his current deal runs until the end of next June.

Therefore, Inter will clearly want to see the 48-year-old pen a new contract before heading into next season at the helm. With regards to Martinez, Marotta said that “The important thing is the player has a strong sense of belonging here.” “He wants to continue his experience with us.”

“The situation is calm,” Marotta assured. “We don’t have players whose contracts are on the verge of expiring.” The Inter CEO made clear that “Lautaro Martinez’s extension is virtually done.” “Now it’s just a matter of his signature.”

“That’s not there yet. Simply because right now he’s in Argentina. But we’ve already finished up.” Then, asked if it’s a similar story with coach Inzaghi, Marotta replied “Yeah, for sure.” The former Juventus executive also gave his thoughts on the performances by Inter players for Italy yesterday.

“The Italian national team has a heritage that has to unite all the clubs,” the CEO said. “The fact that there’s a core of Interisti who make the national team an Inter-national team fills us with pride. For all the work we’ve done, and the growth of these guys.” “I have to give my hats off to everyone,” Marotta said.

“We’re so proud that Inter can make their contribution.” He further added. While the contract extension is important, the club is also keeping an eye on the transfer market, and they’re ready to make a definite move for one of their main targets this summer.


The newly crowned Serie A champions and Genoa are set to seal the transfer of goalkeeper Josep Martinez this week, according to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport. Martinez is the player who Inter have settled on to sign as a new keeper. The Nerazzurri have been aiming to sign a young goalkeeper as one of their main priorities this summer.

Firstly, to back up Yann Sommer next season. And then to take over as the starter in the long term. Just like they did with Samir Handanovic and Andre Onana. The Nerazzurri have also been monitoring other profiles.Bento is a long-term target, although negotiations with Athletico Paranaense for the Brazilian international are tough.

They have also been linked with Udinese’s Maduka Okoye and Lazio’s Christos Mandas from within Serie A, while also having a meeting with the agent of Villarreal keeper Filip Jorgensen recently. But at the moment, it is Martinez who Inter are pursuing.

The Nerazzurri are moving swiftly in talks with Genoa to try and sign the 26-year-old former RB Leipzig keeper. According to the Gazzetta, Inter already have a full agreement with Martinez on personal terms. The Spaniard is ready to sign a five-year deal until the end of June 2029 with the Nerazzurri.

This contract would see him earn €1.5 million net in his first season. That amount would rise in subsequent seasons. Martinez will be ready to push for the starting spot even in his first season, going head-to-head with Sommer. Now, Inter must hammer out a deal with Genoa.

The Nerazzurri will be sending a player to the Grifone as part of the deal to lower the cash value. Genoa have yet to decide who to sign in this respect. Gateano Oristanio, Martin Satriano, Francesco Pio Esposito, and Mattia Zanotti are options on the table. Then the clubs must reach an agreement on the cash value of the deal.

Genoa want €18 million including the value of a player. Inter are pushing to lower it to €15 million. But these are relatively minor matters.The Gazzetta anticipate that the two clubs will meet this week. And they should finalize the agreement, with Martinez ready to become an Inter player soon.
