Inter Forced to Delay Much-Awaited Contract Extension

Inter and his CEO Giuseppe Marotta hoped to strike a deal with Milan Skriniar by the start of the World Cup, which obviously didn’t happen. The defender is currently vacationing in Qatar, where part of their management is following the competition. They’ll have to wait a little longer to learn his final answer on the extension.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the center-back expects the club to raise their most recent proposal. The Nerazzurri tendered €5.5M per year plus €500k add-ons. The Slovak wants to be paid as much as Marcelo Brozovic and Lautaro Martinez, €6.5M annually plus add-ons.

Inter and the entourage of Skriniar will have further meetings in December. The team is determined to reach agreement before the January window to keep the suitors at bay. PSG remain very present in the race, and they can offer up to €8.5M wages.

Chelsea are also keeping tabs on the star as they plan to further bolster their defense. The 27-year-old made their winter shortlist along with RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol and Mohamed Simakan, the outlet relays. The new ownership of the Blues established a strong rapport with La Beneamata right away.

Our Take on Inter and Skriniar

It has taken them longer than they wished, and that’s further confirmation that the proclamations by the executives are often hot air, but they aren’t truly on the clock yet. They have a month to get it done, and the gap between the offer and the request isn’t too wide and is well within their parameters. They’d be in a much worse spot had he asked them to match the salaries he could get abroad.
