Inter are seen as eager to discuss Walter Mazzarri’s contract with the club come May, before planning out a future with him.
The Coach has fallen under scrutiny this term for the Nerazzurri’s inconsistent form, but, on the verge of Europa League qualification, has once more this week received public backing from President Erick Thohir.
However, the Gazzetta dello Sport say that this backing is tempered by the club’s desire to resolve Mazzarri’s contract situation.
With the tactician entering the final year of his original deal at San Siro signed with Massimo Moratti last summer, La Beneamata are described as reluctant to plan forward and continue with a Coach who could then leave a year from now.
