And now, the Nerazzurri have officially announced the contract renewal of Federico Dimarco, who has extended his stay at the club to June 2027.

The 34-year-old Italian full back joined the Nerazzurri in the summer of 2021 from Parma in a deal worth around €3.3m, having impressed during his previous season on loan. Darmian has proven himself to be an incredibly useful member of Simone Inzaghi’s squad in the Lombardy capital, scoring eight goals and providing 10 assists across 140 total appearances.

His tactical flexibility has allowed him to play across the backline, filling in where needed. As confirmed today, Darmian has now officially signed a new one-year contract with Inter, extending his stay at the club to June 2025. Recent reports suggested that he would be rewarded with a slight raise to his current €2.5m net per season wages in the new deal.

The Nerazzurri have been working on tying up the contracts of a number of stars in their squad and further announcements are expected in the coming months, with players like Lautaro Martinez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan ready to extend their stays at the club too. A report from Spain had suggested that Spanish side, Real Madrid had been hoping to make a move for Dimarco in the summer, but this announcement basically confirms the player’s intentions to stay.


The club is also expected to take decisive steps in their pursuit of a right wing-back in the coming winter transfer window. The Italian government’s decision to scrap the Growth Decree for football won’t affect Inter’s pursuit of Tajon Buchanan.

The Nerazzurri have made the 24-year-old Canadian international their top target to replace Juan Cuadrado on the right side of the pitch. Reports suggest that Inter don’t want to wait long to complete a deal to sign Buchanan. The Nerazzurri’s intention would be to bring the Canadian in early in January.

Buchanan could arrive next week. Inter may even want to sign the player in time to have him in the squad for their next Serie A match, against Hellas Verona next weekend. At the same time that this is happening, there is also the very prominent situation surrounding the Growth Decree in Italian football. For several years, the tax benefits of the policy have been applicable in football.

This has allowed Serie A clubs like Inter to sign players from foreign leagues and pay lower taxes on those players’ wages. But that won’t be the case starting next month. So the fact that Inter are aiming to bring in Buchanan from the Belgian top flight could be one of a number of deals that the policy change by the Italian government would affect.

But according to a report from Italy, that won’t really be the case. Inter have already agreed personal terms with Buchanan. The Canadian would be set to earn around €1.5m net per season. That is not a huge outlay by Inter. And in terms of the taxes, even without the Growth Decree, the Nerazzurri would only be paying around €1m on that amount.

Inter have long known about the potential ramifications of Italy getting rid of the Growth Decree in football. And the decision to sign Buchanan is one they made keeping that in mind. More talks with Club Brugge is expected in the coming days and a deal can be finalized before the transfer window officially opens next week.
