Inter and Inzaghi About to Formalize Two-Year Extension

Simone Inzaghi will soon extend his Inter contract, prolonging his stay until 2026. He’ll put pen to paper in short order. The official announcement should coincide with the start of their pre-season camp later this week. The parties were quicker than last year when he did it in September.

According to Fabrizio Romano (via SOSFanta), the gaffer will tack on one year on his current deal. He’ll enjoy a slight pay rise to €6.5M annually. He’ll be the highest-paid Serie A manager following Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus exit.

Inter brought in the agent of Inzaghi, Tullio Tinti, in recent days to finalize the extension. The most significant development is a €2M bonus should the Nerazzurri lift the 2024/2025 Scudetto.

The 48-year-old has been at the helm since June 2021. La Beneamata poached him from Lazio following Antonio Conte’s abrupt departure just as he was about to sign a new contract. He has recorded 104 victories, 28 draws, and 26 losses during his four-year run in Milan. On top of winning Serie A in the past campaign, he took home the Coppa Italia twice and the Supercoppa on three occasions.

Our Take on Inter and Inzaghi

The add-on is chunky, but they didn’t need to go crazy on the wages, which is good news for the club and leaves room to go up a notch in the future. On the other hand, they keep proceeding with short-term extensions, so they’ll have to do the whole song and dance again next summer unless something odd happens.
