Negotiation of details, announcement by Epiphany. With an agreement until at least 2028, he would be the highest-paid player in the squad
No surprises under the Christmas tree, but a big bang is in store for New Year's Eve. Between Lautaro Martinez and signing the contract extension at Inter, it really comes down to the details. The parties have continued to work tirelessly in the last few weeks and have put almost everything in order. We are on the home stretch of a long marathon, which we are experiencing from all sides with great serenity. Because Lautaro has always chosen Inter: in recent years, when Barcelona and Real Madrid tried to explore the possibility of his transfer; and also last summer, when Saudi Arabia was willing to even offer the moon to Taurus in order to get a yes.
But there is no way around it, here too the Argentine proved to be a rare commodity, a man of bygone times. He welcomed the Inter project, of which he is today the symbol, the face of the new Interism. And he wants to keep growing and winning at the Nerazzurri, with the captain's armband on his arm and the love of the Inter family around him. Inter hopes to make the official announcement of the contract extension by Epiphany, which runs until at least 2028 and guarantees Lautaro a salary of 7 million net per season, making the Argentine the highest-paid player in the squad.
always at the top
In short, a reward for his loyalty and leadership, which has only grown stronger since wearing the captain's armband. And the first months of the season have once again confirmed how important Lautaro is to Inzaghi's Inter: a modern striker with quality and willingness to make sacrifices, who has developed into a top international player from week to week in these first five years in Milan. Winning the World Cup in Qatar last year was another incentive to always want more, especially from yourself. And Lautaro's 2023 year was close to perfection: in the first six months he won two more cups with Inter, with whom he then unexpectedly reached a Champions League final. And with the start of the new season, Lautaro has transformed himself into something of a new superhero: in the league we have scored 13 goals in 14 games, an impressive performance that could allow him to break his personal best in the individual championship (21 in the last two years) and also to try to attack Higuain and Immobile's Serie A record of 36 goals.
In a football where everything is bought and values seem to have disappeared, Lautaro is a candidate to be one of the last flagships. He has been at Inter for six seasons and with the new contract he could spend more than ten years with the Nerazzurri, becoming one of the longest-serving attackers (more than a legend like Boninsegna) and deserving of his personal 'star'. However, his current mission is to win Inter's 20th Scudetto, which will allow them to sew the second star onto the shirt. A goal that has become an obsession for Toro, after the incredible epilogue of the 2021/22 season, which ended in tears at the Curva Nord after a Scudetto was lost in the photo finish and ended in the Milan of the Rossoneri.
Love and honor
Lautaro's tears contained frustration and disappointment, but also a pact of honor and love. The Martinez family has chosen Milan, sworn loyalty to Inter and wants to continue growing with the club with the aim of winning everything. With Lautaro, a symbolic man, a role model for the younger ones and a leader. Following in Milito's footsteps, he entered the hearts of fans, now he wants to follow Javier Zanetti's example and rewrite history. A new Argentine in the Nerazzurri mythos. A new flag.
