Inter, Inzaghi’s renewal is ok. Hermoso the favorite, if Oaktree says yes

Everything is ready for the season ofInter can begin. It will officially be held on Saturday in Appiano Gentile, with a very small number of people. First, on Friday afternoon, the president Beppe Marotta and the technician Simone Inzaghi will present the season in a press conference. Before that, the Nerazzurri coach will sign the new contract with the club, with a 2026 horizon.

Yesterday morning was used to sort out the final details: Tullio Tinti, who later in the evening joined Inzaghi for dinner in Romagna, defined the new agreement. It will make Inzaghi the highest paid coach in Serie A, provided he wins the seasonal duel with Conte: the difference between the two is played out on bonuses. The Inter coach would have preferred an expiry date of 2027, which would have entailed an investiture similar to that of the sports area of ​​management, but the company plan envisaged one year less and the extension was never up for discussion.

About Inter as a company, from the negotiations for Mario Beautiful you will understand part of Oaktree’s address. The Spanish defender, available on a free transfer – but with a salary that is not exactly cheap and related commissions – is the favourite on a technical level, both of Inzaghi and the management. He can act as Bastoni’s deputy or even in the centre, a sector in which Acerbi’s age and doubts about De Vrij’s permanence advise caution. He is not the ideal profile for a fund, because he is close to 30 years old and therefore not very “futuristic” in terms of the market: Oaktree’s ok is needed to accelerate.
