Intern are not currently optimistic about the prospect of agreeing on a new contract with Ivan Perisic.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that negotiations have yet to really start with the 32-year-old but that the club are not expecting to reconcile the distance between the parties.
Inter have become more serious about trying to extend the contract of Perisic, which is currently set to expire at the end of June, given the Croat’s excellent form this season.
For the moment, there is a difference of around €2 million between the annual wages that the club are offering and what the player is expecting, while the player hopes for a three-year deal and the club are hoping to agree a two-year deal.
The Nerazzurri will be patient in the negotiations, and they expect that things will become clearer as the 32-year-old begins to receive offers from other clubs for the summer.
Should Perisic not receive any other offers more in line with his demands, then the club could become more optimistic about agreeing a new deal with him.
