The elephant in the room for the 2020-21 Lazio season is the future of manager Simone Inzaghi, whose contract expires in a few months. Talks of a contract extension have occurred, but both parties have yet to agree to a deal.
According to Italian football journalist Niccolò Ceccarini, who made an appearance on TMW Radio (via La Lazio Siamo Noi), says both sides have been in contact, discussing an extension after the fixtures against Club Brugge KV and Benevento Calcio.
At Lazio, people continue to think about the renewal of Simone Inzaghi. The parties are in contact but at the moment an agreement has not yet been reached.
The intention would be to extend his contract for at least another year, until 2022. Probably discussions will be studied in depth in the coming weeks.
After the market closes, the decisive phase of the negotiation will probably start.
Furthermore, having their manager extended is crucial if Lazio wants to land a recruit or two during the winter transfers window as targets will want to know if Inzaghi is the long-term manager before committing to the project.
Nonetheless, it will be interesting to see what comes out of their post-transfer market meetings. Whether it’s the money, contract terms, or perhaps Lazio owner and president Claudio Lotito waiting for the season to play out before committing to Inzaghi, this story will continue to make headlines until a resolution is reached.
