Wingback Federico Dimarco feels that there are no reason to expect difficulties in agreeing a new contract with Inter Milan.
The 25-year-old spoke to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, after the Nerazzurri’s 1-0 Serie A win against Empoli.
Dimarco was Inter’s match-winning hero at the Stadio Carlo Castellani this afternoon.
It was not the most emphatic of wins for the Nerazzurri, with just a solitary goal in the match. But Dimarco’s stunning long-range effort early in the second half was enough to seal the points.
The Italian international certainly underlined his importance to Inter with the goal.
Over the past couple season, Dimarco has made popping up with important goals something of a habit.
So naturally, the Nerazzurri will want to keep hold of the wingback, whose current deal runs out at the end of June 2026.
Reportedly, Inter want to extend Dimarco’s contract until the end of June 2028. He would receive a pay raise to reflect his new standing in the team as part of an agreement.
There’s not exactly a rush to put pen to paper. But Inter will want to move forward with confidence and in due time.
And for his part, the player concerned believes that he can agree an extension with Inter. And it’s certainly what the 25-year-old – who is a lifelong Inter fan and came through the club’s youth academy – is hoping for.
Federico Dimarco Positive About Agreeing New Contract With Inter
As far as his future, Dimarco was unequivocal. “I don’t think that there’s anything to say except that I really want to extend my contract.”
“I don’t see any problems,” he said of the contract talks.
Of this afternoon’s victory, Dimarco said that “I don’t think it was an easy match.”
“We started off well, but then dropped off towards the end of the first half,” he went on.
“Fortunately we ended up finding the goal that gives us three important points,” Dimarco said.
Asked whether he thinks his long-range stunner this afternoon was his his best ever goal, Dimarco replied “Along the one I scored for Verona against Torino, it could be.”
He explained that “I watched it all the way down and then took it. And it went in. All good.”
