According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Simone Inzaghi will sign a contract extension with Inter until 2024 with an option for a further season.
Inzaghi signed a two-year deal with the Nerazzurri in the summer, but the team’s result this season have convinced President Steven Zhang to offer a new contract to the former striker. Zhang travelled with the team to Liverpool, where the Serie A champions will face Jurgen Klopp’s Reds in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 tonight.
Zhang is reportedly on very good terms with the coach and appreciates what Inzaghi has done on and off the pitch during his first months at the club.
Therefore, the 45-year-old will soon be offered a one-year contract extension, with an option until 2025. According to the report, Inzaghi will also get a pay rise seeing his salary go from €4.5m per season to €5m-a-year, plus add-ons.
Inter have reached their first two targets this season: the Supercoppa Italiana and the qualification for the Champions League Round of 16, a stage that the Serie A champions hadn’t reached in the previous ten years. They sit second in the Serie A table, two points off their city rivals Milan, but with a game in hand.
