Chelsea want inter Milan star Skriniar at all cost next window.
While Chelsea looked for centre-backs this summer, they
were repeatedly linked to Inter Milan defender Milan
Skriniar, who could have left the Nerazzurri. Slovakia
international ended up staying at San Siro, and by entering
the final year of his deal, he now becomes an option clubs
can sign for free next year.
Speaking to the media this week, Milan was asked about
his situation with the Nerazzurri and made it clear that he
would not discuss his contract publicly. “I have never
talked about the market so far and will not even in this
“We came this far to play the game, not to talk about my
future or my contract. This is neither the time nor the right
place. When there is news you will know it from me and
no one else,” Skriniar said.
That may have sounded like a tip that the negotiations for
renewal are far from happening, but according to reports
from the Italian media, he’s actually keen on staying. The
27-year-old centre-back stays ‘strongly linked to the orbit
of Chelsea and PSG’, claims the defender’s will is to
remain at Inter Milan.
It’s stated that during the international break, there will be
talks to reduce the ‘economic gap’ for a new deal. His
entourage ‘would settle’ with a yearly salary worth €6.5m,
making him the second-best paid footballer in the squad
after Lukaku. So if the Blues are still interested in signing
Skriniar, they better move before that extension is signed.
