Inter Milan are not worried about the contract extension of club captain Lautaro Martinez despite some recent chatter.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

The past couple of weeks have seen a lot of talk about the contract situation of Inter captain Martinez.

At the moment, the 26-year-old Argentine international is under contract with the Nerazzurri until the end of June 2026.

But by all accounts, Inter want to extend Martinez’s deal.

The Nerazzurri know full well that they have to tie down their captain sooner or later. They want to have him on a long-term deal as a clear hands-off message to other European clubs.

Premier League sides Arsenal, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur have all targeted the Nerazzurri striker in the recent past.

Inter Milan Not Worried About Lautaro Martinez Contract Situation

Reports indicate that there have been negotiations between Inter and Martinez’s representatives for months now.

There had been talks in the fall. And Inter reportedly had some hope of wrapping them up as early as January.

However, Martinez has still not put pen to paper.

The Argentine is still on the same contract that he signed in the autumn of 2021.

Therefore, it is perhaps natural that some anxiety has crept into the situation.

Recent interviews by Martinez’s agent Alejandro Camano have not helped. The agent made clear that there is still no agreement, and hinted without too much subtlety that wages are the issue.

Reportedly, Martinez wants wages in double figures if he is to commit his future to Inter.

And the Nerazzurri have not made an offer high enough to seal the deal just yet.

Nevertheless, the Corriere reports, behind the scenes there is little anxiety on Inter’s part.

The club believe that despite some of the recent noise, things will resolve themselves in due time.
