A report in the Italian media details the reasons that encouraged Inter Milan captain Lautaro Martinez to accept the club’s contract extension offer.

The Argentine’s contract saga was one of the hottest topics in the peninsula over the last few days.

Following a host of twists and turns, the striker reportedly instructed his agent to accept the club’s offer and thus drop his hefty wage demands.

Therefore, the two parties have finally reached an agreement in principle. The signatures could come as early as next week.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via FcInterNews) explains the reasons that prompted Martinez to take the initiative.

The main reason, reveals the pink newspaper, is the fact that he’s happy at the club.

The 26-year-old is the captain and main talisman of a solid squad capable of competing for all honors.

However, there were other factors that also played a key role in the player’s decision.

For instance, his wife Agustina is very happy with life in Milano. She runs an Argentine and Mediterranean cuisine restaurant in the Brera area, and has no desire to leave the city.

Moreover, Lautaro’s daughter Nina (born in 2021) attends a school in the city center. Her little brother Theo (2023) should eventually follow suit.

Finally, the source explains how some insulting messages from the club supporters affected Martinez. Many Inter fans on social media have accused him of greed.

Nevertheless, the striker was eager to prove he’s different from others who abandoned the club in the past, and not just with words but also through action.

Therefore, Lautaro made the final push himself, playing an integral role in unlocking the negotiations.
