Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi has reportedly negotiated his contract renewal with the club himself, without the need for agents or intermediaries.

Earlier today, the club officially announced the extension of the manager’s contract until 2025. His previous deal was set to expire at the end of the current campaign.

According to Sport Mediaset via FcInter1908, Inzaghi negotiated the terms of his new contract with club officials himself.

This occurred during the club’s pre-season tour in Japan, explains the source, describing the affair as “atypical negotiations”.

The report also explains how the rapport between the manager and the club had its highs and lows recently, mostly depending on the results on the pitch.

The 47-year-old had first arrived at the club in the summer of 2021. He has thus far won four trophies at the club (two Coppa Italia trophies and as many Italian Super Cups).

Although the Scudetto title eluded him in his first two seasons at the club, the management still opted to back him, perhaps swayed by his cup exploits (including a Champions League final appearance).

Simone Inzaghi Negotiated His Contract Renewal With Inter Milan Directors Himself

The Nerazzurri are now enjoying a fine start to the campaign. The team won all of its three Serie A fixtures thus far, beating Monza, Cagliari and most recently Fiorentina. They’re also yet to concede a goal in an official match.

The upcoming Derby della Madonnina against crosstown rivals and fellow league leaders AC Milan will be the first major test for Inzaghi this season.

The former Lazio boss would certainly want to mark his contract renewal with a significant Derby victory.

The big clash will ensue on Saturday, September 16. This will be the first fixture for the Nerazzurri after the international break.
