Inter Planning to Part Ways with Some Players on Short-Term Contracts

Inter want to hold onto the pillars of the team, such as Nicolò Barella and Marcelo Brozovic, by handing them new contracts. But not everybody will get one. A few players will be on their way out in June, and some as free agents.

The Nerazzurri are looking to avoid such scenario primarily with Brozovic, Tuttosport reports. The management is hoping they could come to terms before January to fend off offers from other clubs. After the taking care of two midfielders, Inter will focus on the negotiations with Federico Dimarco, Milan Skriniar, and Roberto Gagliardini.

Instead, Ivan Perisic, Aleksandar Kolarov, and Arturo Vidal are not priorities. Their current contracts are all up in 2022. The Croatian winger and the Chilean midfielder have seen regular playing time to open the campaign, but their salaries are rather high. Inter will probably look elsewhere on their roles in the summer. They have an option to prolong Vidal’s deal, but they are unlikely to pick it up, the newspaper adds.

Alexis Sanchez will likely leave as well, either in January or in July, even though he is tied to the club till 2023. Martin Lasarte, the coach of the Chilean national team, clearly stated that his lack of minutes is becoming a problem. Stefan De Vrij is in the same contractual situation. The front office have approached Mino Raiola to discuss an extension. On the other hand, Inter will strongly consider cashing in on him. They would make a rich profit because he joined for nothing and has a few deep-pocketed suitors.
