Inter Milan have reportedly held a private meeting with the agent of Lautaro Martinez as they look to put their contract extension talks on the right track.

The two parties have been trying to reach a final agreement over a new deal for several months now.

However, there remains a significant gap between the club’s offer and the agent’s request.

Moreover, Alejandro Camano further complicated the situation with some public statements that didn’t sit well with the club directors.

This even prompted talks of a potential sale in the summer. After all, the Nerazzurri would be afraid to lose their most prized asset on the low in case he refused to extend his contract which will expire in 2026.

Nevertheless, La Gazzetta dello Sport (via FcInterNews) has offered some reassuring news for Inter supporters this evening.

According to the pink newspaper, Camano met with the Nerazzurri directors on Thursday away from the limelight.

The two parties wanted to avoid a media circus. So instead of holding a summit at the club’s headquarters in Viale della Liberazione, they opted for a private meeting in a hotel in the center of Milano.

As the source explains, this was only a preliminary meeting to clear the air. It also helped prepare for a more crucial summit in the coming days.

The source believes the crucial encounter could ensue as early as Saturday.

However, there is a possibility to schedule it after Tuesday’s general assembly where the shareholders will elect a new president.

Moreover, GdS reports that the gap between the parties persists. Nevertheless, the two sides are showcasing the desire to overcome all hurdles and bridge the distance.

The Inter captain has often reiterated his desire to stay at the club for years to come and cement his status as a club symbol.
