OFFICIAL: Kolarov Signs One-year Extension

The Serbian offers Simone Inzaghi an experienced depth piece

Inter has officially announced the renewal of Aleksandar Kolarov’s contract until June 2022. His new deal is at a wage of €1.5 million, half of what the Serbian earned last year. While this is far from a flashy move, Inter will need its fair share of depth next season to balance three competitions. Kolarov is one of the cheapest options available but at 35 years of age, Simone Inzaghi won’t be able to put much responsibility on his legs. He made only eleven appearances last season and failed to impress. Inter’s finances don’t allow it to chase a quality fourth center back as a rotation piece, however, so Kolarov is the next best thing.


MILAN – FC Internazionale Milano are pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached for the extension of Aleksandar Kolarov’s contract. The 35-year-old Serbian defender’s deal now runs until 30 June 2022.

Joao Mario Nears Benfica Move

With a little luck, Inter will finally offload Joao Mario in the near future. Benfica has offered €7.5 million for the midfielder, a sum Inter is all too happy to accept after years of loans with unused options to buy. The only stumbling block is a clause from his initial signing from Sporting that rules out selling Joao Mario to a rival of the Portuguese club. The Nerazzurri are hoping it will be able to circumvent that and are willing to go to court.

Inzaghi’s First Press Conference Scheduled for Wednesday

Simone Inzaghi will be introduced as Inter manager tomorrow at 1:00 PM CEST/7:00 AM EST with a press conference broadcasted on Inter TV. The Nerazzurri kick off preseason training on July 8th, though much of the squad will still be on international duty.
