After months of rumors and speculation, Lazio’s contract extension saga with Simone Inzaghi now has come to an end. According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Lazio and Inzaghi have agreed upon a new multi-year extension deal that will keep the Italian manager at the club.
Inzaghi agreed to Lazio’s three-year extension offer, which will see the renowned Italian manager avoid free agency and instead remain with the Biancocelesti until 2024. This new deal will see Inzaghi earn €2.2 million per year coupled with bonuses.
Inzaghi garnered late interest from the likes of Inter Milan. One report noted that Inter viewed Inzaghi as one of its ideal candidates to replace Antonio Conte, who had departed from the club following a contract termination agreement.
In the end, Inzaghi elected to turn down interest from Inter and other pursuing clubs in order to stay with the Biancocelesti.
With this extension saga now behind Lazio, the attention for the club will now surely turn to the much-anticipated summer transfer window where major changes within the team may be on the horizon.
