Inter Milan seem to want to part ways with coach Simone Inzaghi even if he were to win the Champions League.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin based daily newspaper Tuttosport, as reported via Italian Inter news outlet FcInterNews.
According to the report, all the signs point in this way given that Inzaghi’s contract is set to expire at the end of June 2024 and there are currently no contract extension talks scheduled to extend his stay at the club.
Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta has never before in his career gone into a season with a coach in charge who has a contract that expires at the end of that very season, Tuttosport notes.
Furthermore, the report adds that the club has decided to turn the page, regardless of if Simone Inzaghi were to deliver Inter Milan’s fourth ever Champions League win.
Bologna’s Thiago Motta The Main Candidate
The report continues that should Inzaghi deliver a miraculous Champions League win, Inter will have to replace him with a name to save face.
However, as the report states, they are running out of candidates as Mauricio Pocchettino who the Inter directors like a lot, has decided to move to Chelsea, crossing his name off the list.
Roberto De Zerbi and Sergio Conceicao are also candidates to replace Simone Inzgahi but they are both under contract with Brighton and Porto respectively, and Inter would have to pay their clubs compensation to snag them.
This is something Inter would like to avoid and as such the main candidate as things stand is Inter Milan treble hero Thiago Motta who is currently at Serie A outfit Bologna.
Motta’s agent recently confirmed that his client’s current deal with Bologna expires at the end of June 2024, but the Rossoblu want to extend that deal, as another one of his former clubs, PSG, are also interested in him for next season.
