Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta has quashed some recent rumours about contract talks with Lautaro Martinez stalling.

Speaking at the Rosa Camuna award ceremony, via FCInter1908, the Nerazzurri executive also expressed great optimism about the future of the club under Oaktree Capital’s ownership.

The past few days have seen the rumours mill going at full speed regarding the situation of Inter captain Martinez.

The Argentine is currently under contract with Inter until the end of June 2026.

There have been talks for several months with Martinez and his agent. These have been to try and find an agreement on a new contract.

However, the talks have yet to go anywhere concrete.

Reports suggest that Inter and Martinez are still some ways apart between the club’s offer and the player’s wage demands.

The situation being what it is has led to rumours that Martinez’s demands are far too high for Inter.

There have even been reports indicating some anxiety about the possibility of another club making a significantly higher offer – Paris Saint-Germain for example.

However, Marotta continues to express full confidence that Inter and Martinez will agree a new deal in due time.

Of the situation, the Inter CEO said that “There’s not worry.”

“These are negotiations with dynamics that are typical of the world of football,” he continued.

“Particularly at this stage of the season.”

Marotta went on that “We start off with an important consideration: Lautaro has a strong sense of belonging at this club and in this city.”

“That will certainly make it easier for us in negotiations with his agent,” he predicted.

“There’s certainly no hurry,” Marotta continued. “We’ll proceed very calmly.”

“Today there are other priorities at the club, which you know well,” he said, referring to the change of ownership from Suning to Oaktree.

“We will also address these issues in due course.”

Marotta also added that “The same thing applies to Inzaghi as to Lautaro.”

“Inzaghi has proven that he’s a good coach, successful. And it’s clear that, on our part, there’s a desire to continue on this journey.”

“We want to extend his contract,” Marotta said of Inter’s coach.

“It’s not just faith. We want to put him in a position to work in pace, and this is a cycle that we can continue for a long while to come.”

Meanwhile, Marotta also spoke about the early talks with new Inter owners Oaktree Capital.

“They’ve given us reassurances from day one,” he said. “Oaktree wants to give the team continuity, stability, and sustainability.”

“And above all, they want to keep going with the results we’ve gotten over the past few seasons.”

“Therefore, I have to say that personally I’m very optimistic,” Marotta said.
