Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta has reportedly prolonged his collaboration with the Serie A giants until 2027.
The 66-year-old joined the club in 2018 following a successful eight-year stint with arch-rivals Juventus.
The Italian had a contract with the Nerazzurri running until 2025. Nevertheless, the two parties decided to extend the deal by pushing back the deadline by another two years.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the news was announced this morning during the board of directors meetings.
As the source tells it, Inter president Steven Zhang attended the meeting through a video conference call.
The report notes that this renewal comes on the back of successful results recorded during the CEO’s time at the club.
The Nerazzurri have won a Scudetto title, two Coppa Italia trophies, two Italian Super Cups and reached a Champions League final under Marotta’s watch.

Moreover, the former Sampdoria general manager struck important coups on the transfer marker. This includes signing the likes of Hakan Calhanoglu and Marcus Thuram as free agents.
The source now expects Inter to keep the top brass of the sporting department intact by handing new contracts to sporting director Piero Ausilio and his right-hand man Dario Baccin.
Marotta started his career as a scout at Varese. He gradually worked his way up in the hierarchy of Italian football to cement himself as one of the most recognized directors in the sport.
