Inter Milan reportedly have an agreement in principle with Lautaro Martinez over a contract renewal so they remain serene and confident.
The two parties have been negotiating a new deal over the past months.
The Argentine is tied to the club with a contract valid until 2026. However, the management is looking to push back the deadline by another two years.
But while reports have been indicating that the final accord is close for weeks now, the two sides have yet to put pen to paper.
Nevertheless, Italian journalist Matteo Barzaghi insists that the delay hasn’t raised any concerns at Appiano Gentile.
The Sky Sport Italia reporter believes that Inter remain confident as they have an agreement in principle in hand.
“There isn’t any sort of concern or fear on the management’s part,” said Barzaghi via FcInter1908.
“The parties were already close to signing and have now become even closer. We said that there is an agreement in principle.”
Inter Milan Expect To Finalize Lautaro Martinez Contract Renewal Sooner Rather Than Later
Barzaghi claims that Inter and Lautaro are currently ironing out the last details in their imminent agreement. He believes that sorting out the add-ons could untie one of the final remaining knots.
“They still have to sort out bonuses and other details in the contract. As we said before, the management will address it after the end of the transfer market with the desire to close the deal as soon as possible.”
Lautaro inherited the captaincy following the departure of Samir Handanovic and other senior members of the squad in the summer.
The armband has borne the Argentine good fortune, as he’s currently enjoying the best campaign of this career.
The 26-year-old has thus far scored 19 Serie A goals from as many appearances.
