Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has confirmed that the club is negotiating to extend captain Lautaro Martinez’s contract for another five years.
Lautaro Martinez, who played a crucial role in Inter’s success, including winning the 2022 World Cup with Argentina, securing the Coppa Italia, Supercoppa Italiana, and reaching the Champions League Final, is one of the most valuable player in the squad.
The discussions for the contract extension come as a recognition of Martinez‘s contributions to the team, and he recently won the Gazzetta dello Sport award, which Marotta accepted on Martinez’s behalf.
“We are proud as Inter when one of our players wins an individual award, because in a team sport the credit also goes to his teammates,” said the CEO Marotta.
“He is improving fast, proving that in sport you start as a talent and must work to become a champion. He is getting closer to that reality and doing it in the best possible way.”
Lautaro Martinez, signed from Racing Club for €25 million in the summer of 2018, is currently under contract with Inter until June 2026. The club is in advanced talks to extend Martinez’s contract for another five years, recognizing his significant contributions to their success and his status as a key player in the squad.
“Of course. In fact, we are trying to extend the contract by another five years. We are negotiating and the good thing is that he has this great sense of belonging, which in modern football is truly not to be underestimated.”
Lautaro Martinez is experiencing the most prolific season of his career, having scored 15 goals in just 19 games across Serie A and the Champions League.
