Inter Meet Again with Lautaro Martinez’s Agents to Discuss Extension

Inter convened with the representatives of Lautaro Martinez for the third time in the span of a month to work on the contract renewal and, while there is confidence it will get eventually get done, it is not yet the time to put pen to paper as the two sides are still negotiating the new salary, Gazzetta dello Sport reported.

The agents Beto Yaque and Rolando Zarate met with the front office at the club’s headquarters to touch base after the recent rumours about the financial instability of the club and were reassured about it, even though the final greenlight will have to come directly from Suning, the Chinese conglomerate that owns the team.

Martinez is currently under contract until 2023: the extension will push the end date by one or two years and yield the player a significant pay bump, as he is earning €2.6M per year plus bonuses. The current contract includes a €111M release clause that will remain valid until a new deal is inked.

According to, the Nerazzurri are offering a €5M per season, a sum that has not been deemed sufficient by the entourage given the fact that Barcelona proposed €10M net in previous windows, however they are currently not in the picture since they are going through the election process and are dealing with economic difficulties caused by the pandemic. Despite the fact that he has been linked to the Blaugrana at length, Manchester City could emerge as the fiercest suitors if the extension is not finalized before the summer, Eurosport reported in previous months.
