First Meeting Between Inter Boss & New Owners Yields Positive Results

A new era at Inter is starting to take shape after the United States fund Oaktree took over the club from Chinese businessman Steven Zhang. Tuesday was a landmark day for the Scudetto-winning manager Simone Inzaghi, as he met the new owners for the first time, reports Calciomercato.

It was a formal meeting at the club’s headquarters, an opportunity for the Inter hierarchy to get familiar with the new leadership. Though the parties didn’t discuss a market strategy, they touched on several crucial topics, including Inzaghi’s well-deserved contract extension.

Next week, Inzaghi’s agent, Tullio Tinti, will introduce himself to the new Inter powerbrokers to negotiate terms on behalf of his client. Inzaghi led the Nerazzurri to their 20th Serie A title in his third season in charge and has duly deserved a reward for his stellar managerial exploits.

His current contract expires in 2025. But Inter want to tie their coach down to a new deal without unnecessary delays. Oaktree has vowed not to ring significant changes at Giuseppe Meazza, which includes Inzagh’s extension as one of the focal points.

So far, the Americans have made good on their promise not to disrupt the harmony at Inter. Giuseppe Marotta, Piero Ausilio, and Dario Baccin received plaudits from the fund’s entourage during the meeting, as well as guarantees they would continue to operate autonomously.

Whether the parties opened a dialogue over Lautaro Martinez’s future at Inter is still uncertain. It’s been among the major talking points these past few weeks, but his long-awaited extension remains up in the air.
