Marotta: ‘Lautaro’s renewal? It’ll happen before pre-season training’


Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta confirmed that Lautaro Martinez will renew his contract before the start of pre-season training. Marotta was speaking at the 2024 Inter club party and addressed reports on Oaktree, player renewals and a number of other topics relating to the Nerazzurri.

Ensuring Continuity with Oaktree

At a celebration with the Inter Club, Marotta confidently addressed the future under the new American ownership by Oaktree Capital. “I can guarantee you that there will be absolute continuity in management with Oaktree. Those who speak ill of us do so out of envy and spread biased news to make Inter seem like a club in disarray. But Inter is in great health and thriving. We will achieve great satisfaction,” Marotta declared.

Inter Among the World’s Best

Marotta emphasized Inter’s standing as one of the strongest teams globally. “Inter should be considered one of the strongest teams in the world. In football, you must not be afraid; you must have the courage to aim for high goals. This is what I promise. Winning the Scudetto? I believe the turning point was the victory against Juventus. At that moment, Allegri spoke of ‘short-nosed wins,’ but then it became very long. After that, it was a downhill ride, but until the math was in our favor, there was always anxiety. We won with ease, if I can say so.”

Lautaro’s Contract Renewal

Fans naturally inquired about the renewal of captain Lautaro Martinez’s contract. Marotta responded optimistically, “We are in discussions with his agent, Camano. Agents always try to make themselves look good, but I am optimistic. Lautaro wants to stay and shows it every day. Surely, by the start of training, his contract will be extended.”
