Ivan Perisic looks set to remain a key part of Antonio Conte’s Inter heading into next season, according to a report in the Italian media.
Calciomercato.com said Inter were intending to keep faith with the Croatian after his impressive transformation into a complete left wing-back.
Perisic is under contract with the Nerazzurri until the summer of 2022 with an annual salary of €5 million.
The 32-year-old has become ‘a universal player’ after his treble-winning loan spell at Bayern Munich, the report argued, playing 70 minutes as a false nine for Croatia in last night’s 1-0 defeat in Slovenia.
While Inter are planning on keeping Perisic for the 2021-22 campaign they also have plans to offload three of their other options in the left wing-back spot.
Aleksandar Kolarov and Ashley Young are both out of contract in June and are destined to leave, with neither having convinced Inter that they would be worth an extension.
Dalbert is also due to move elsewhere because Inter do not intend to keep the Brazilian when he returns from his unsuccessful season-long loan with Rennes in Ligue 1.
Real Valladolid, who have Inter’s legendary former striker Ronaldo as their president, were linked with the 27-year-old in January and could revive their interest in the summer.
