Inter Set New Deadline to Solve Drawn-Out Skriniar Saga

Inter are putting pressure on Milan Skriniar to get an answer to their contract proposal. The parties met in late November. The Nerazzurri offered €6M per season plus bonuses. They want to put a bow on the affair by January 15th, Alfredo Pedullà informs.

Per Sky, the executives are less optimistic than in the past but maintain some hope. However, they can’t improve their offer, or other stars might ask for a raise. If he accepted, it’d be a romantic choice by the center-back since he would easily earn more abroad.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter are growing irritated with the delay, but they won’t strip Skriniar of the captain’s armband. He’ll wear it versus Napoli since Samir Handanovic is a backup, and Marcelo Brozovic is hurt.

If the Slovak doesn’t reply in the next two weeks, the Nerazzurri will consider a January sale. The player would need to sign off on his departure, and it’s dubious he’ll do. While the executives don’t doubt his professionality, the club would be in a tough spot since they don’t want to lose him for nothing.

Our Take on Inter and Skriniar

The only real deadline is the end of his contract in June. If the front office is indeed adamant about demanding a response soon, it means that they are contemplating a winter exit. It’d be a major blow, and they’d struggle to replace him adequately. However, considering their terrible finances, it’d be better than getting naught. It’s a collision between economic and technical needs.
