Inter prepared to engage in contract negotiations with center-back duo De Vrij and Skriniar

With the winter transfer window imminently approaching, Inter are prepared to engage in contract negotiations with the center-back duo Stefan De Vrij and Milan Skriniar.

As it stands, both defenders’ contracts with the Nerazzuri are set to run out at the end of this year’s current campaign, allowing other clubs to purchase them for a very low fee, or even sign them on a free ahead of next season.

As per Skriniar, the Slovakian international seemed set to depart the Milanese club after agreeing on €9m per-season contract with Ligue 1 giants PSG, with Inter willingly searching to sacrifice the star stopper in order to inject additional funds. However, Inter pulled the plug on the transfer negotiations, resulting in the 27 year-old remaining with the club for the time being.

With other numerous European juggernauts, such as Real Madrid and Manchester City, assessing the situation as they prepare to submit a low-ball transfer offer around the region of €25m within the winter transfer window, Inter are pressured to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

According to reports from Italian news outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Nerazzurri are willing to offer Skriniar a contract of €6m per-season plus add-ons as early as this week in order to extend the defender’s stay at the San Siro.

In addition, the club will also begin negotiations with the Dutch international De Vrij once he finds a new representative, as the 30 year-old recently parted ways with the Raiola agency firm. The Milanese clubs are eager to extend the former Lazio star quickly as numerous Premier League outfits, such as Tottenham and Chelsea, are keen on acquiring the defender.
