Inter are looking to extend the contracts of head coach Simone Inzaghi as well as captain Samir Handanovic ahead of next season.
This according to Italian journalist Niccolo Ceccarini, who wrote in his column for TuttoMercatoWeb that both are among the contracts who the Nerazzurri most imminently wish to extend.
Inzaghi’s work has been to the club’s satisfaction, with the coach guiding the team to Scudetto contention late in the season as well as the Champions League round of sixteen and at least the semi-final of the Coppa Italia.
The former Lazio boss only signed a two-year deal when he joined the Nerazzurri last summer, but the club have already made their intentions clear to continue on with him past the end of the current contract.
Meanwhile, Handanovic’s situation is a little different and it remains to be seen whether the 37-year-old will agree a new deal past the end of this season, but according to Ceccarini the club are working on making it happen.
“Inter are at the table on several new deals,” he writes “Among these there are also renewals. The Nerazzurri have already moved to sign Onana next season, but their intention is also to keep Handanovic.”
“The goalkeeper is aiming for a two-year duration, while Inter would like to extend him by just one season,” he goes on, “the negotiations go on and soon there may be news.”
“Meanwhile, the relationship with Simone Inzaghi is also very solid and the will is to further consolidate the relationship,” he adds. “So at the end of the season there will be an extension for him of another two seasons.”
