Inter’s contract with Henrikh Mkhitaryan will contain a clause which allows the Nerazzurri to terminate the deal after twelve months in the event that he doesn’t make a certain number of appearances.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri can automatically trigger the option to part ways with the Armenian if he does not appear in a certain number of matches.

Everything is in place for Mkhitaryan to sign a two-year deal with Inter once he completes his medical, taking him until the end of June 2024.

However, the Nerazzurri have included a clause in the deal specifying that the 33-year-old must make a set number of appearances next season, and if this threshold is not reached then they will have the option of ending his time at the club next summer rather than keeping him on for the second year of his deal.
