Inter Finalizing Big Numbers of Lautaro Martinez Deal

Lautaro Martinez probably won’t pen his new Inter contract before Christmas, but it could happen shortly thereafter. The parties are down to the nitty-gritty of his extension. They have been tirelessly working on it in recent weeks. The negotiation is in its homestretch, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The Argentine is ready to re-commit to the Nerazzurri, as he did in the past when Barcelona and Real Madrid targeted him, and last summer as well, since the Saudi clubs were ready to hand him a boatload of money.

Inter hope to make the awaited announcement about Lautaro Martinez by January 6th. The new deal will run at least until 2028. El Toro will pocket €7M per season, becoming the highest-paid player in the squad.

The striker has been going like gangbusters this season, scoring 13 goals in 14 domestic matches. He’s well on pace to break his personal record (21). He could threaten Gonzalo Higuain and Ciro Immobile’s all-time Serie A one (36) if he keeps it up.

Lautaro Martinez is already an Inter stalwart and is poised to further solidify his status. Should he see out his contract, he’d stay at the club for over ten years, making him one of the longest-tenured center-forwards in the history of the club, surpassing even the iconic Roberto Boninsegna. After winning the World Cup in Qatar, he’s eyeing his second Scudetto to amend the bitter finish of the 2021/2022 season.
