Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta feels that everyone in the squad would deserve a contract extension, but that the club will have to be rational about how they make decisions about the future.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia before the Nerazzurri’s clash with Atalanta, via FCInterNews, the CEO gave his thoughts on the numerous contract extension situations at the club going into the summer.
There are several players in Inter’s squad who see their current contracts run out at the end of next month.
There those like Edin Dzeko and Stefan de Vrij who are reportedly likely to extend their deals. Then, there are others like Samir Handanovic and Danilo D’Ambrosio, whose situations are more uncertain.
What is clear, however, is that a lot will depend on how the season ends.
The Nerazzurri are not yet certain of Champions League football for next season. Then, there will still be time necessary for Inter to outline their summer transfer strategy.
Marotta: Inter Milan Must Be Rational In Contract Decisions
Asked if new contract extensions can be expected next Monday if Inter secure Champions League qualification, Marotta replied “Not this Monday. We’ll see over the next few days, we’re calm.”
“All the guys deserve to be rewarded with new deals, but then we also have to think rationally,” he added.
“All the guys deserve it,” he added, “we’ll address each situation, between the directors and the President, with utmost respect.”
Of the team’s objective of Champions League qualification, Marotta said that “I don’t think that any season is more or less difficult, in the league or in other competitions.”
“This season we stumbled in the league, but the coach did well to get everything back on track.”
“There’s still the final chapter, with a little uncertainty but I’m sure we’ll make it,” he added.
