De Vrij Expected to Extend Inter Stay Come January

Inter stopper Stefan De Vrij is currently not enjoying his best period with the Dutch national team, having sat out of all three group stage games at the FIFA World Cup. However, he is still an integral part of the Nerazzurri outfit. Simone Inzaghi is likely to entrust the Dutchman with responsibilities guarding the backline going into the second half of the season.

The 30-year-old defender will be able to negotiate for a pre-contract agreement with a club of his choice come January, with his contract expiring at the end of the season. As per FCInterNews, Inter are not interested in selling.

Sporting director Piero Ausilio will hold talks with the player’s new agent Federico Pastorello in the coming weeks. The ex-Lazio center-back is expected to be offered a contract two or three-year renewal deal soon after the tournament in Qatar shuts close, albeit with a reduced wage.

De Vrij himself is interested in staying put in the Inter colors, despite interest budding elsewhere – such as from La Liga and the Premier League – for his services. It would also be in the best interest of the Nerazzurri, who will be holding onto a prized asset who is in perfect physical condition. In addition to that, they risk losing him for free.
