Ivan Perisic looks set to remain at Inter, with no serious offers having yet come in for the Croatian.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the 33-year-old is admired by new head coach Simone Inzaghi, who will be glad to have the player in the squad.
Perisic’s contributions during the Scudetto win of the past season earned him praise, and he is thought to be an asset to the club on the pitch.
However, with the club looking to meet strict financial targets in the summer including with respect to the wage bill, the net €4.7 million the winger earns in the final year of his contract is seen as too high.
Moreover, with the player entering the final year of his contract, the Nerazzurri are wary of losing him for free next summer when his deal expires, and had been thought to be hoping to offload him for a fee this summer.
However, it now appears that interested clubs will prefer to move for him next summer when he is out of contract.
Accordingly, the Croatian will be a part of Inzaghi’s squad next season, available as soon as the pre-season tour of Florida, and the new manager will hope that the player can reprise his contributions from last season.
