Federico Dimarco is due for a new contract as his significance to the team has grown greatly since he last re-upped with Inter. He has already provided two assists in the first three rounds of the 2023/2024 season.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, there’s some distance between the offer and the request, but the fullback only sees himself with the Nerazzurri colors. Therefore, he’s not a flight risk even should the negotiation proceed slowly. His current deal lasts until 2026.
Dimarco currently earns €1.8M, and his camp and Inter concur on pushing the expiration date to 2028. However, the brass offers €2.5/2.7M wages, while his entourage asks for €3.5M. Reaching those figures would allow him to enter the upper echelon of salaries within the squad.
The parties might be able to meet halfway, €3M per year, after bargaining. The defender’s desire to stay long-term at his boyhood club offers an assist to the management. He drew some inquiries from the Premier League this summer but doesn’t envision himself playing elsewhere.
Our Take on Inter and Dimarco
He has been a big bargain since he burst onto the scenes and became a regular for them. They were quite lucky he made the leap, or the whole Robin Gosens fiasco would have been very damaging after Ivan Perisic left. It’s time to pay the man.
