Inter Milan have not extended the contract of Corporate CEO Alessandro Antonello due to the nature of his agreement with the club.

This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews. The broadcaster explain that the Corporate CEO has a permanent employment contract which doesn’t require extension.

Major news behind the scenes at Inter has arrived in recent days.

The Nerazzurri will extend the contracts of their three most important sporting executives.

CEO of sport Beppe Marotta will sign a new deal until the end of June 2027 – the veteran former Juventus and Sampdoria executive’s contract previously ran out at the end of June 2025.

And it’s not just Marotta.

Sporting Director Piero Ausilio and Assistant Sporting Director Dario Baccin will follow suit.

This sends a clear message about the sporting project at Inter.

There will be continuity, as the architects of the Nerazzurri’s squad and sporting strategy over the last five years have committed their future for at least a few more seasons.

Inter’s ownership are backing their key executives with new deals.

But one man who will not be signing a new contract is Corporate CEO Antonello.

Why Inter Not Extending Contract Of Alessandro Antonello

Whilst Antonello’s fingerprints are not on the Inter team on the pitch from week to week the way that Marotta’s, Ausilio’s, and Baccin’s are, he is no less important in terms of his role behind the scenes.

Antonello has headed up the business side of the Nerazzurri’s operations.

This has entailed major expansion in the commercial sphere in recent years.

Antonello has been the architect of Inter’s strategy between sponsorship deals and brand expansion.

This has been vital for securing the revenues to support the sporting side of the operations. Not least due to the well-known financial issues that Inter have dealt with during the pandemic.

And Antonello has also played a key role in navigating the tricky new stadium front.

Therefore, securing Antonello’s future is certainly important for Inter.

And the fact that the Corporate CEO will not put pen to paper on a new contract as with the sporting executives has raised some questions.

But as Sky explains, the terms of Antonello’s contract with Inter are actually permanent.

There is no need for the executive to sign a new deal.

Sky report that Antonello is in it for the long haul just as much as Marotta, Ausilio, and Baccin are.

The Inter ownership back their main executives completely.

And that feeling is reciprocal. The Nerazzurri executives have shown total trust in the club’s owners to support the project.
