12 million per season? That's cray cray. He might as well leave for free once his contract expires, just like Skriniar.

Right now, Inter doesn't have a player worth that kind of money. Earning 12 million per season means you're a player that countless kids idolize, your jersey sales are through the roof, and new fans start supporting our team just because of you. As wild as it sounds, it’s not just about football skills; your marketability has to be off the charts, with at least 50 million real followers (not bots) on Instagram by today’s standards.

Lauti it's not it right now, and i really doubt he ever becomes that type of player.

He has a contract till 2026. It would be very toxic enviroment if he refuses to extend now and waits to 2026.

If there is no agreement in the upcoming weeks/months, Marotta better starts looking where to ship him. I have always thought that Lautaro's next destination would be Spain but since RM is packed and Barcelona is a mess right now, do not see it happening. EPL is always an option - there he could easily get his millions.

His agent gave an interview where he's basically saying Lautaro loves it at Inter, has no intention of leaving but wants to get compensated properly.

Which I think is fair. It's just a negotiation.

If he wants that much he needs to be more consistent than this. If he didn't have the last 3 months he had, I would say he deseves that. But despite his best season, he's not worth more than 8-9m per season.
I continue to say he did his job (scored 23 goals) in a shorter period, when it was needed. He scored against Atalanta that great goal, that was his last goal in the title race, but we had practically won it after that match already. Only thing you can argue is the two CL matches where he didn't score, other than that, he did enough for our title race. I mean, he lead the the team as captain to the 2nd star Scudetto, clinching it in a derby. To me those last 3 months are irrelevant. We didn't need his goals anymore.

Anyway, Lautaro is so much more than just scoring goals.

9-10 is ok in my book. Prefer 9, but he is an important part of Inter. Without him, we may not even make top 4, tbh.

We need to sell one player like always, right?
We don't. We only need like 20M (Dumfries). Next year we will need more if there is no Scudetto and/or solid CL run.

I swear half of this reports are to get fans angry at players and to ruin the atmosphere.

9 mil is ok but if he remains the same cold spell king afterwards then it’s not ok. I’m not confident that he will overcome his issues but we aren’t in a favourable situation right now.

Precisely. :D

People just take away the words from these reports which they want, to get themselves worked up.

He is just entering his prime with age 27 season coming. Perišić and Brozović are greatest example. They was nowhere near earlier in their career what they was later for us (world class seasons). Especially Perišić.

If we don't give him 9-10 now it could be very possible next season he will be worth 12+.

I think this is genuinely a good argument. He’s growing exponentially season on season, despite his more frustrating characteristics.

Are we in a position where we can blow up our salary structure (if we have one that is) on a reasonable bet that he continues to improve though?

Just give him the latter (1.5 per CL knockout goal) and I’ll be personally satisfied.

Sounds good on paper potentially but I’d worry greed would factor in and he’d shoot in situations where the pass option is the best course of action.

It doesn't work like that.

As much as he isn't worth the 12m per season, if the club can afford him, then so be it.

If we can't, just sell him now to avoid anything stupid later.

If he wanted Haaland money he had a Europa League and Champions League final to show that he deserves that kinda money.

I was willing to forgive that Atletico game, but if this 🤡 thinks he can’t choke when it matters and miss sitters and penalties and get $$$$ he can fuck off

Grazie for the Scudetto. Ibra won us 3, and we old him to bounce. He’s nowhere near good enough to break this team’s structure

Marotta has full control over transfers now right? Doesn't have to go through Oaktree to get approval? I trust him in selling him as how he did not let big names ruin the structure of the club like Juve
