But all is not well at the moment, especially between Lautaro and the club and a move away from the club seems like a possibility for the Inter captain. The club hierarchy were reportedly said to be displeased by the agent of the Argentine, who made some comments regarding contract extension negotiations in recent days.

The two parties have been discussing a new deal for quite some time now. But while both have reiterated their desire to move forward together, they seem to be far apart in the negotiations. According to a report from Corriere dello Sport, the club’s management is growing increasingly irritated by Alejandro Camano’s recurring public statements.

The agent has been constantly suggesting that the club must raise their salary offer. While the Nerazzurri aren’t willing to go beyond €8,5 million per year, Camano has reportedly asked for €12 million. The report also revealed that the club directors feel that the agent is acting on his own accord.

Therefore, they would like to listen directly to Martinez in order to understand whether he shares the same demands with his agent. The source also believes that the Italian champions aren’t willing to waste time on this front. That is because they fear losing their leverage over the situation.

After all, the captain’s contract is valid until 2026. So if he doesn’t intend to sign an extension, now would be the ideal time to cash in on his services, as his market value would significantly drop next summer. The source claims that Inter would be willing to seriously consider offers above €100 million.

However, the club directors feel they could have easily avoided this unpleasant situation. Therefore, they direct the blame towards Camano and his contract demands. Martinez has been plying his trade at Inter since 2018. He has now cemented himself as the club’s ultimate leader and talisman.

Already, Austrian striker, Marko Arnautovic has come out to dispel rumors of his impending exit while the club is set to welcome Iranian forward, Mehdi Taremi on a free transfer from Portuguese club, Porto to compliment their attack for next season.

Meanwhile…

For his strike partner, Thuram, he’s ready to turn his attention towards next season, and he feels he can finish a season with 20 goals and 20 assists in the future: ‘It’s the best moment of my career.’ The Frenchman believes he’s in the best moment of his career and thinks he can soon finish one season with 20 goals and 20 assists.

He joined Inter on a free transfer last summer from Borussia Mönchengladbach and won the Serie A title in his first season at the club. “I was quickly adopted by Inter fans,” the player told Le Monde in an interview. “Hearing your name spoken by 75 thousand fans is exciting, and when you love what you do, and you have a passion as great as mine, you can only appreciate it.

“I don’t set limits for myself after such a season. I’m in the best moment of my career and I’ve proved that I can improve every year, tactically and in terms of stats,” the striker continued. Under Simone Inzaghi, Thuram has been playing as a centre forward, a role he can cover with his national team too. “The winger role belongs to the past, I am a striker today,” he said.

“I want to make a difference in big games and also with the national team. “I am competitive and aspire to become my best version. I think I can become one of the most complete players in the world,” added Thuram. “I’ve proved that I could do great things, and I imagine I can finish a season with 20 goals and 20 assists.

“Before, they knew me because I was the son of Lilian Thuram. Now, I am mostly Marcus Thuram, without taking anything off my father who has 142 appearances with France.” The 26-year-old has scored 15 goals and provided 14 assists in 46 appearances across all competitions this season. He has been included in France’s squad for Euro 2024. He made his senior debut with the national in November 2020 and has scored two goals in 18 appearances with Les Blues.
