Inter Milan announced on Wednesday contract extensions for Alessandro Bastoni and Hakan Calhanoglu, two key players in the Serie A club’s run to last season’s Champions League final.
In two short separate statements, Inter said that Turkey captain Calhanoglu, 29, had signed a new deal until 2027 while defender Bastoni had extended his contract to the following year.
Italian media report that Bastoni has increased his salary to 5.5 million euros ($6 million) a season.
Calhanoglu moved to Inter from local rival AC Milan as a free agent two years ago and starred in midfield last term, with six goals and three assists in 49 appearances over all competitions.
Italy international Bastoni, 24, has become a fixture on the left side of Inter’s three-man central defence and played 46 times in an eventful campaign.
Inter, which has signed France forward Marcus Thuram and Davide Frattesi this summer, finished third in Serie A and some 18 points behind champion Napoli.
However it took part in a thrilling Champions League campaign, thumping Milan in the last four before being narrowly defeated by Manchester City in Istanbul.
