Inter could offer coach Simone Inzaghi a contract extension at lower wages than had been initially put forth if the team do not win the Scudetto.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the club could adjust their offer on a new deal based on the team’s performance in Serie A.
Inter have long been clear in their intention to extend Inzaghi’s deal, and would offer him an extension regardless of whether they win the Serie A title or not this season.
The club are happy with the coach’s work, and have no intention of letting him go into the final year of his initial two-year deal without an extension penned, as this would transmit uncertainty.
However, the offer that the club had been ready to make earlier in the campaign had been based around the likelihood that the team would go on to win the Scudetto, as their form made them firm favourites.
However, a recent dip in form has meant that the Nerazzurri find themselves in a very tight Scudetto race, and should they lose out on the title to one of their rivals, then the offer of renewal to the coach could reflect this.
