Coach Simone Inzaghi could extend his contract with Inter Milan before the start of the team’s preseason training camp.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper report that the coach will sign a new deal until the end of June 2026.

For the time being, Inzaghi’s contract at Inter runs until the end of next June.

The 48-year-old signed his most recent extension with the Nerazzurri last summer.

However, Inter will certainly want to extend their coach’s deal this summer.

The Nerazzurri’s idea is for another one-year bumper deal.

That would be the same approach as the Nerazzurri took in each of the last two summers since Inzaghi’s arrival from Lazio in the summer of 2021, when he signed a two-year contract.

Inzaghi had hoped for a new deal until the end of June 2027.

But according to the Corriere, Inter insisted on another one-year extension. And the coach is ready to agree to that.

Simone Inzaghi Likely To Extend Inter Milan Contract Before Preseason Starts

And Inter’s aim is to have the new contract for Inzaghi in place by a specific date.

July 13th will be when Inter’s squad starts to assemble for their preseason training camp.

And that will be when Inzaghi starts his work in preparing for next season. Inter will go into the campaign as Italian champions.

The Nerazzurri’s hope is that Inzaghi has already signed his new contract by the time he starts work in preseason.

The coach will not have a complete squad available to him just yet when he convenes the players for the training camp.

There will be players still on their holidays, or in action at the Copa America and the Euros.

But the Inter coach will still want to make the most of the training camp right from the start.

Therefore, Inzaghi will hardly want the distraction of contract talks in his mind. Inter want to wrap things up as soon as possible in view of the training camp.
