Lautaro Martinez will put pen to paper on a new contract with Inter at the end of the month, according to an Italian newspaper report today.
As per Tuttosport, after several meetings in January between the Nerazzurri and the striker’s representatives, an agreement was reached over a new deal and the deal will be finalised in late February when his agents return to Milan.
Lautaro will extend his contract with Inter through to the end of the 2023-24 season and as part of the new deal, his salary will rise from €2.5 million to €4.5 million and he will also have several easily achievable bonuses to hit too.
The 23-year-old Argentine’s current €111 million release clause will also be eradicated as part of the new deal that will see him commit his future to the club for the foreseeable future.
The former Racing Club player, who joined Inter in 2018, has made 32 appearances across all competitions to date this term, in which he has scored 13 goals and provided seven assists for his teammates.
Lautaro played a starring role in Inter’s 3-1 win over Lazio on Sunday, scoring the third goal as Antonio Conte’s side went top of Serie A.
