Although he’s been on the bench in the last few games, with Spalletti preferring the flair of Yann Karamoh, Antonio Candreva is anything but on the sideline for Inter. The proof is in the fact that both parties will meet at the end of the season to discuss a contract extension for an additional year, up to 2021. As was believed to be the topic of discussion between the Nerazzurri Sporting Director, Piero Ausilio and Federico Pastorello.
However, similar talks also took place, regarding the future of Joao Miranda who is likely to sign an extension to June 2019. The Brazilians situation is still being monitored but all signs point to the signing going through. In September, Miranda will turn 34 and may even decide to retire from the Selecao after the World Cup in Russia. If that were the case, Miranda would be able to prolong his career in Europe, as a luxury rotational player in view of the arrival of Stefan De Vrij to partner Skriniar.
This is what Tuttosport explains today, expressing Inter’s gratitude for their loyalty and strong leadership skills in the dressing room. With a return to European Football next season likely, as well as playing in the League and Cup, it will serve Inter well to keep trustworthy and experienced individuals to ensure quality in their rotations.
