Lautaro Martinez continues to establish himself as the central figure in Inter’s project, and the club are preparing to offer him a new long-term contract.
The 26-year-old Argentinian striker was the hero of the Champions League opener against Real Sociedad, scoring a late equaliser. He once again proved his leadership skills on the pitch and in the dressing room, unhappy that the team had failed to take all three points at home. Lautaro has already started the season well, scoring six goals and providing two assists in five appearances in Serie A and the Champions League. Corriere dello Sport detail how Inter have no doubts about Lautaro’s talismanic status and are preparing to begin contract negotiations, keen to extend his deal beyond the current 2026 deadline. The 26-year-old, recently appointed club captain, is entering his sixth season with the club and is clearly the star of their new era.
