Inter Milan will begin contract extension talks with Simone Inzaghi once they have achieved their objectives for the season.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper anticipate that the Nerazzurri will hold off on talks with their coach until later in the spring.

Extending the contract of Inzaghi is set to be more than just a piece of minor housekeeping for Inter.

The 47-year-old’s current deal with Inter runs until the end of June 2025.

This is in following with a longstanding policy of Inter CEO Beppe Marotta. The veteran executive tends to update coaches’ deals with one-year extensions annually.

But in the case of Inzaghi, it now looks as though Inter will aim to extend their coach’s deal by two years instead, until the end of June 2027.

And Inzaghi would certainly be due a significant pay increase from the 5.5 million net per season that he currently earns.

The reason why is not hard to understand. Inzaghi’s stellar work over the last twelve months or so has attracted a lot of interest around Europe.

Premier League clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United reportedly see the former Lazio coach as a possible target.

Inter Won’t Rush Into Contract Talks With Simone Inzaghi

According to Tuttosport, however, Inter will not be in too much of a hurry.

The club is calm behind the scenes. They don’t feel that there is any imminent threat of their coach being snatched away from them.

Moreover, Inter want the focus to be completely on the pitch in the run-in of the season.

The Nerazzurri are pushing to win the Serie A title in the coming weeks.

That would be the first Scudetto for Inzaghi as a coach, and the first for Inter in three years.

Moreover, there is optimism regarding the team’s prospects in Europe.

Inter have an advantage in their Champions League round of sixteen tie against Atletico Madrid.

And the feeling is that if the Nerazzurri can see that tie out in the second leg, the prospects are there for them to make a similar run in the competition to last season’s, when they reached the final.

So Inter will wait to see how the team does relative to their expectations over the next two or three months.

And the club will avoid the distraction of contract talks with their coach for the time being.

Meanwhile, Inter President Steven Zhang will likely arrive in Italy some time in April.

The President’s stay in the country could make for the perfect time for contract talks with Inzaghi.
