Inter Milan have resigned Romelu Lukaku this summer on loan from Chelsea. The club is looking to regain the Serie A title from city rivals AC Milan. Another major move for the club before this summer was to extend the contract of Argentinian marksman, Lautaro Martinez.
Due to the contract extension, Lautaro Martinez’s future has been secured long-term. Meanwhile, the loan deal for Romelu Lukaku means that the Nerazzurri has reunited with the Scudetto winning a strike partnership. Manager, Simeone Inzaghi will be pleased to have the two strikers in the squad for this season. It is a tried and tested partnership and will bear fruits for the team in the league.
Lautaro Martinez has also stepped up his performances this season as he aims to win his second Serie A title. The Argentinian international has already scored 3 goals and provided an assist in the first 6 appearances in the league this season. The striker seems to be rediscovering his form this season.
Lautaro Martinez is the central figure of the project at Inter Milan
The club has extended the contract of the Argentinian striker for another 5 years till 2026. It is an indication from the club hierarchy that the player is considered as an important part of the project. With the future of Romelu Lukaku still uncertain, Lautaro Martinez is undoubtedly the more important player for the club.
It is an even more important season for the Argentinian as the FIFA World Cup is scheduled for this winter. The striker will certainly be hoping to secure a ticket to Qatar with Argentina National Team. Furthermore, if the player is hoping to move to a bigger European club, performances this season and at the World Cup will be vital in helping him secure a move.
Inter Milan will be hoping that the striker can find some extra motivation and fire, even more, this season. Romelu Lukaku is out injured at the moment and the role of Lautaro Martinez is critical in the squad. AC Milan have maintained the form of last season and are going strong in Serie A again. In such a scenario, consistency will be key for Inter Milan and Lautaro Martinez alike!
