Inzaghi Buying Time on Inter Contract as Interest Grows

Simone Inzaghi is likely to continue with Inter even though some major Premier League clubs have inquired about him. He’ll have to pen a new contract to ensure that happens since he’s tied to the Nerazzurri only until 2025. He’ll have a lot more leverage compared to the previous negotiations, Corriere dello Sport informs.

The coach re-upped with the team twice since he was poached from Lazio but always obtained just one-year renewals. The brass hadn’t entirely bought in yet. The new deal will inevitably be longer, at least until 2027. He currently makes €5.5M and will likely ask for €7M annually. He’d reach the same level as Massimiliano Allegri, the highest-paid manager in Serie A.

In addition, Inzaghi will request technical reassurances. He would like the squad not to be reshaped as heavily as in previous summers. His wish might be granted since the Nerazzurri have a better financial situation.

According to Il Giornale, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United would be keen if he left. However, the boss seems intent on staying put in Milan.

Our Take on Inzaghi and Inter

His reputation has done a 180 in about 18 months. The skepticism was still there when he last prolonged his contract. At some point in the near future, his wages might become too expensive for them, but the reported figures are still okay for Serie A standards, so the extension will likely get done. But it might be the final one.
