Inter defender Milan Skriniar expects that he will extend his contract with Inter past the end of June 2023.
Speaking while receiving the award for Slovak footballer of the year, as reported by FCInterNews, the 27-year-old predicted that he will commit his future at the Nerazzurri, while he also weighed in on the Scudetto race.
Skriniar’s current deal is set to expire at the end of next season, but the defender’s performances have made him a key pillar in the team and it is not likely that the club would have any intention of seeing him go.
So far, the Nerazzurri have not offered Skriniar a new deal, but it is widely reported that they will prioritize securing his future and rewarding him for his performances with a new deal on improved terms.
For his part, the Slovak defender would be happy to stay on, and in the meantime is focused on the Scudetto fight.
“We’ll see if the club directors offer me a new contract, but I think that they will,” he said. “I think they are satisfied with my performances, we’ll see. But I think I’ll stay.”
He continued that “The fact that we managed to win the Scudetto at Inter helped me a lot. We\re close again this year, even if now we’ve fallen a bit behind, but I think we will return to winning.”
He added that “In recent season, the Italian league has been more balanced, unfortunately we dropped points in several matches.”
“Milan and Napoli overtook us in the table,” he went on, “but we still have one game in hand to make up, we will fight until the last round. I hope we make it in the end.”
