Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi has made his demands on a contract extension clear as Man United are ready to push for him.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who report that the coach will want assurances about the strength of the squad and support for his staff.

Inter will know that teams in the Premier League are starting to circle above their coach.

Inzaghi’s work over the past three years at the Nerazzurri has culminated in a team that’s virtually as strong as it has ever been.

Inter are in dominant form at the top of the Serie A table. They are fifteen points clear at the summit.

And in the Champions League, Inter are ready to push for another knockout run.

Last season, the Nerazzurri reached the final of Europe’s top club competition.

According to Tuttosport, the club who retain the strongest interest in poaching Inzaghi from the Inter bench is Manchester United.

The Red Devils are seriously considering parting ways with Erik ten Hag at the end of the campaign. And if they do, Inzaghi would be towards the top of their shortlist.

Simone Inzaghi Makes Inter Demands Clear Amid Man United Interest

According to Tuttosport, Inzaghi knows exactly what he wants if he’s to sign a new contract with Inter.

The coach’s current deal runs out at the end of June 2025 – the end of next season, in other words.

The Nerazzurri will want to lock Inzaghi down on an extension until the end of June 2027.

That would be a very clear “hands off” message to United and any other club.

Part of this would naturally mean a pay raise to reflect Inzaghi’s importance to the club.

But above all, Tuttosport report, Inzaghi wants guarantees about the squad.

The former Lazio coach has learned to live with key players departing. He knew that would be the case when he joined, and has built around these departures.

But Inzaghi doesn’t want that to be the case any longer.

The 47-year-old wants assurances that Inter will not be forced into selling key players. He wants a strong, and deep squad for the coming seasons, with the expanded Champions League and Club World Cup formats.

Then, Tuttosport report, Inzaghi wants greater support and security for his staff.

The ex-Biancocelesti boss has a trusted and loyal coaching staff. And he wants them to get their fair due.
