Lautaro Martinez to sign a new deal at the club despite ditching his agents. As reported by Corriere dello sport. Inter expect Lautaro to follow in the footsteps of Milan Skriniar. He left his manager in 2018 before signing a new contract with the club himself.
Inter intend to increase Lautaro’s annual salary from €2.7 million to €5 million plus add-ons as part of the new deal. There is also a chance that Inter could remove the €111 million release clause from El Toro’s deal. The clause is currently valid for overseas clubs during the first two weeks of July. Although the club’s financial problems means he is not entirely certain to stay. The Rome-based paper warned that Inter would need to sacrifice one or more key players this summer to balance their books. So, Lautaro could therefore be sacrificed if a big offer arrived.

Lautaro began his football career in Argentina where he made his senior debut in 2015 with Racing Club. There he spent four seasons. Also, he was the captain of his club in the league, scoring 27 goals in 60 appearances before joining Inter in 2018. Martinez also previously represented Argentina at various youth levels. He competed at the 2017 South American U-20 Championship and 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup. He made his senior international debut in 2018. Also, he represented the senior squad at the 2019 Copa América. He helped his team to a third-place finish in the competition.
Lautaro has already seen his annual salary triple from €1 million to €3 million since joining Inter from Racing Club in 2018. As per the agreement signed three years ago. Lautaro has scored 17 goals in all competitions for Inter this season. Including 15 in Serie A (his best tally for a single season since joining the club in 2018).
