Inter Milan are hoping to strike a final accord with head coach Simone Inzaghi over a new contract in what could be a decisive meeting on Friday.

The two parties’ collabortation dates back to the summer of 2021 when the 48-year-old arrived as a replacement for Antonio Conte.

The Piacenza native won the Coppa Italia and Italian Super Cup in his first two campaigns at Appiano Gentile.

But after missing out on the Scudetto title twice, he made up for it by securing the big trophy last term while leaving his challengers in the dust.

Therefore, the management is looking to reward the former Lazio manager by extending his contract. Inzaghi’s current deal is valid until June 2025.

According to Il Corriere della Sera via FcInterNews, the two parties will meet on Friday morning in the hopes of closing the deal.

The club is offering the coach a significant pay rise. This would take his yearly net salary to 6.5 million euros. This would match Conte’s wages at Napoli.

But as the source explains, they still have to sort out some remaining details for the white smoke to emerge.

For instance, Inzaghi was gunning for a contract running until 2027, while the hierarchy placed the deadline in 2026.

Therefore, the tactician is hoping to be recompensated through a small adjustment in the salary. This could either be in the fixed part or the Scudetto title bonus.

Inter will be hoping to reach a final accord with the manager in the morning before making the announcement during the first press conference of the season which will take place later in the day.

Otherwise, the two sides would have to schedule yet another meeting to reach a solution.
