De Vrij More Certain to Remain at Inter than Skriniar

Inter wish to keep Milan Skriniar following the Gleison Bremer debacle, but it isn’t a certainty yet, while Stefan De Vrij is way more likely to stay put. PSG haven’t stopped pursuing the Slovak, who can’t be outright taken off the market due to his short-term contract.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Ligue 1 giants met with Paolo Busardò, an intermediary close to the Nerazzurri, in London yesterday. They haven’t raised their proposal, but the defender doesn’t have an agreement in place for an extension either.

Both Skriniar and De Vrij are under contract with Inter just until 2023. While the former is in high demand, the offers for the latter have been lacking, SportMediaset informs. The management has opened talks with his camp to add more years to his deal. Though, they will likely put pen to paper only after the end of the window. He currently earns €4.2M and might take a slight pay cut.

The Nerazzurri are wary Chelsea might join PSG in the race for the 27-year-old too, TuttoSport relays. The Blues are searching for multiple defenders. They missed out Jules Koundé and might not get Presnel Kimpembé either. They could target Denzel Dumfries too.

Our Take on Inter, Skriniar and De Vrij

The problem for the Nerazzurri is that the Parisians probably promised their ace wages they can’t get to. He never clamored to leave, but they will have to make a financial effort to reel him in at this point. A stalemate is brewing, and either outcome is going to be painful. They might have to either lower their demands and sell him, or give him a larger salary compared to what they were planning before the summer.
