Inter Awaiting Answers on Multiple Contract Proposals

Inter have formally offered an extension to Milan Skriniar and Stefan De Vrij, and they are waiting for their answers. The Nerazzurri had been working on the new contract of the former for months. They might need to raise their proposal to strike a deal. Instead, the talks with the Dutchman ramped up in the last few days, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

Despite their cost-cutting policy, they tendered a two-year pact keeping his wages intact, €4M per season. The management believes they would have no shot at retaining him otherwise. The center-back has suitors in the Premier League. He has been up and down during his time in Milan, but he has the trust of coach Simone Inzaghi.

Inter made progress also in the negotiation with Matteo Darmian, who’s tied to the club only until the end of the season as well. Since he spent time abroad, at Manchester United, before heading back to Italy, the team can save significantly on taxes. He’s likely to re-up for two more years, making €3M net, and just €4M gross.

Instead, the future of Edin Dzeko will be determined later in the season. The side would be happy to keep him, but not at his current €5.5M wages. However, it’s not certain he would agree to a pay cut down to €3M plus add-ons. The situation could be intertwined with what happens with Romelu Lukaku.

Our Take on the Inter Extensions

The real prize for the Nerazzurri is striking a deal with Skriniar, and he’s making them sweat. The other moves are more secondary, including De Vrij, who’s fine but not exactly indispensable and has shown visible signs of decline.
