Inter CEO Beppe Marotta: “We’re In Talks With Lautaro Martinez’s Agents Over Contract Extension But There Are No Problems”

Inter are in talks with Lautaro Martinez’s representatives over a new deal for the striker, Nerazzurri chief executive Beppe Marotta confirmed today.

There has been plenty of speculation concerning a new contract for Lautaro lately, with his agents having met Inter at their offices three times in the past fortnight.

Lautaro is currently under contract with Inter until the end of the 2022-23 season but multiple recent media reports have stated he will sign an extension until 2024, which will guarantee him a sizeable salary increase.

“We are discussing it with his agents but there are no problems,” Marotta explained in an interview with Italian news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb.

“We are talking about a very serious professional who has a very strong sense of belonging towards our club.”

Marotta, who formerly worked for Inter’s arch rivals Juventus, also spoke on the recent speculation concerning a possible loan swap deal between themselves and fellow Serie A club Roma that would have seen Alexis Sanchez and Edin Dzeko exchanged.

“Talk over the negotiations was driven more by the audacity of the players’ agents than by the substance of the clubs’ negotiations themselves,” he explained.

“We responded cordially but there were no conditions to go on.”

Inter are expected to do no business between now and tonight’s deadline at 20:00 CET.
