It once appeared as if Inter would sell one of the most reliable defenders in Milan Skriniar. But the recent developments have witnessed a swift turn in events, with the defender edging towards extending his stay at the Italian club.
A report from the Italian outlet Il Mattino claims that Inter have made progress in their attempt to extend Milan Skriniar’s contract. Skriniar’s current deal at the Italian club expires in June 2023.
Extending the player’s contract could help the Nerazzurri fend off interest in the defender from various suitors. Currently, the report indicates that the 27-year-old could end up staying at the Italian club.
Nevertheless, the report also anticipates a late twist in the tale. The club could be convinced to sell their valued asset in the wake of an offer of around €65-€70 million in the same way they were forced to sell Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea last summer.
Meanwhile, Manchester United and Chelsea continue to monitor the situation around Denzel Dumfries. Inter need cash amid this summer transfer window and thus are demanding a fee of no less than €35-€40 million for the sale of the Dutchman.
