Inter Brass Hold Summit with Inzaghi to Talk Strategies

Simone Inzaghi met with the Inter bigwigs yesterday to discuss the plans for the summer. The Nerazzurri will move forward with the coach, who will get an extension soon. CEO Giuseppe Marotta hinted at it in his most recent remarks.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Nerazzurri are nearing an agreement with the manager on pushing the expiration date of his contract to 2024, with another optional season. His wages should increase from €4M to €5.5M.

Inzaghi and the Inter management also addressed the early transfer market ideas. The front office has raised their proposal to Ivan Perisic, hoping it will be enough to keep him. Otherwise, they will look for a youngster to pair up with Robin Gosens. Milan Skriniar and Samir Handanovic are in line to get new contracts.

The Nerazzurri will look to reduce the payroll by 15 percent. Although it should not be challenging since Matias Vecino, Andrea Ranocchia and Aleksandar Kolarov are on expiring deals and will not stay. In addition, the club will attempt to offload Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal, two of the highest-paid players. Instead, the proposition of turning in a €60M profit during the next window will lead to a painful departure.

Inzaghi and Inter agree that Lautaro Martinez should stay. Alessandro Bastoni has become the most likely candidate to depart, with Torino’s Gleison Bremer ideally taking his place. The gaffer also asked for a backup for Marcelo Brozovic and another striker. He signed off on pursuing Paulo Dybala and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
