Lautaro Martinez will stay at Inter until 2026!

Inter is not in great financial shape, today the owners of the club announced that in the 2020/21 season a net loss of 245,600,000 euros was recorded, but for the end of the months-long saga over Lautaro Martinez's new contract, money was found.

With the departure of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea, the Argentine became the most important attacking weapon of Nerazzurri. This summer, there were threats that due to a big deficit in the box office, he could leave Giuseppe Meazza, but Beppe Marotta managed to succeed without violating the regularity of business (financial fair play) and rewarded one of the best players with a new, multi-year contract.

All relevant media in Italy have just published: Lautaro Martinez 2026! As it is stated, the 24-year-old striker will earn 6,000,000 euros per season in the future, which is 140 percent more than before (2,500,000). It will remain a secret (but probably not for long) whether, with the bonuses that were the subject of negotiations this summer, Lautaro will manage to earn 7,500,000 (and to overtake Christian Eriksen), which would make him the highest-paid player in the club.

With these "6,000,000," only Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal earn more.

Release clause

What is a very important item in the new contract is certainly the release clause, that is, its removal. According to the old agreement, Martinez could leave Inter for a club that deposited 111,000,000 euros.

As a reminder, Lautaro Martinez was close to moving to Tottenham this summer. It was said that the agreed price was 70,000,000 euros (up to 90,000,000 with bonuses), but when it became clear that Harry Kane would stay in London, the business failed.

This season, the Argentine is playing very well in the Nerazzurri jersey. In the first nine games of Serie A, he scored five and assisted for one goal. Inter is doing great this season and it is obvious that the club have great ambitions and long-term plans.

After a previously fantastic season in which they were champions, this year they decided to continue as before. Lukaku's departure did not create a big "gap" in the team, because Edin Dzeko is playing great this season, and it is obvious that his experience and knowledge will really help the Milan team.

Martinez is a big plus for a team like Inter because today it is difficult to find a striker of this caliber, who has almost all the predispositions to be in the top 3 strikers in the world.

With this move, most clubs are disappointed because they wanted Martinez, but it seems that Martinez wants to stay loyal to the club that made him a player.
