Inter plan to wait another week to receive responses from defender Andrea Ranocchia and wingback Ashley Young to the contract extensions proposed by the club, according to reports.
Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia reported last night that certain aspects of the Nerazzurri’s strategy for the upcoming transfer window will become clearer in the next seven days.
In addition to the status of proposed renewals for the two veterans, the club also intend to evaluate the contract situations of other players who will be able to leave the club in the summer.
The 33-year-old Ranocchia and the 35-year-old Young are thought to still have a role at the club under new head coach Simone Inzaghi should they accept the renewal offers, but they would have to accept a reduction in wages to stay at the San Siro.
The contract situations of players such as these could provide an interesting window into the Nerazzurri’s intentions for the transfer window, and the club is not in a position to make financial mistakes.
