Inter are not in any hurry to extend the contract of Nicolo Barella, with the midfielder expected to agree on a new deal on improved terms at some point.
This according to Italian news outlet Calciomercato.com, who report that the Nerazzurri want to secure the 24-year-old’s future beyond the summer of 2024 when his current deal expires.
Barella’s form during the past two seasons with the Nerazzurri and at the Euros with Italy has attracted the interest of a number of clubs, and the club will look to warn off any suitors by offering him a new contract.
He has been promised an extension with a wage increase above the €2.5 million net per season which he currently earns, to reward him for his performances and keep him happy at the club, though pen has not yet been put to paper on a new deal.
However, the club are confident that an agreement will eventually be reached, and there is no hurry from either the player or club given that his current contract still has three more years left before running out.
