Inter Milan are on the verge of announcing extensions to the contracts of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Federico Dimarco, and Lautaro Martinez.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.
Inter are looking to extend the contracts of a few key members of their starting eleven.
The talks are ongoing. And in a couple of instances, they should reach their conclusion by seeing the players put pen to paper on a new contract very soon.
First there is veteran midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The Armenian former Arsenal and Roma midfielder’s current contract runs out at the end of next June.
Therefore, Mkhitaryan must sign a new deal if he is to stay at Inter next season.
And according to Sky, that is all set to happen. It should even arrive before the end of this month.
Inter want to waste no more time in tying down the 34-year-old’s future.
And then another big extension that could come before the end of 2023 is that of wingback Dimarco.
The 26-year-old is currently under contract with Inter until the end of June 2026. But Inter want to add a couple years to that deal, and reward Dimarco with a pay raise.

In the cases of Mkhitaryan and Dimarco, the official announcements of new contracts will arrive in the next few days.
The Gazzetta anticipate that they could even come before the end of the month.
Meanwhile, in the case of Martinez, the official announcement will not come quite that soon.
The Argentine will put pen to paper in the near future. But not before the start of 2024.
The Gazzetta report that Martinez’s deal could be made official on January 6.
The 26-year-old will sign a new deal until the end of June 2028. It will not contain a release clause.
