Further Details Concerning Three Recent Inter Renewals

As expected, Inter announced the extensions of Federico Dimarco and Henrikh Mkhitaryan over the weekend, and they also re-upped with Matteo Darmian. They didn’t need to negotiate with the defender since they simply picked up an option, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The Armenian was the most urgent case since his contract would have expired in June without a new agreement. The Nerazzurri wanted to strike a deal before the end of 2023 to benefit from the Decreto Crescita, which the Italian government suppressed from January onward.

The veteran will earn €3.9M net, while his gross wages will be €5.1M, and not €7.5/8M as normal since they’ll save on the taxes at the buzzer. While the midfielder extended till 2026, the club has a clause to get out of the deal in 2025. However, they’d lose the fiscal advantages and would have to give the money back if they parted ways next year.

While Mkhitaryan and Darmian had their salaries confirmed by Inter, Dimarco enjoyed a pay bump up to €4M per year. The former Manchester United wingback, who also falls under the umbrella of the Decreto Crescita since he spent some time abroad, is now tied to the Nerazzurri till 2025. He makes €3.2M.

The management opted to pick up their clause rather than negotiate a new deal. The next renewal on the schedule is Lautaro Martinez. The announcement could come in the early days of January. Instead, the talks with Denzel Dumfries are thornier and will need more time.
