Ivan Perisic is hoping to extend his contract at Inter in spite of his outburst after the Coppa Italia final in which he suggested that he was frustrated with the amount of time that talks were taking.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that the 33-year-old is aiming for a salary that would reflect his importance in the team, and assurances that the team will remain competitive on the pitch.
Perisic’s comments after the Coppa Italia final fuelled speculation that he is unhappy with the way that contract talks with the Nerazzurri have progressed, and feels that the club are not doing enough to satisfy his demands.
Reports have emerged that the likes of Juventus and Chelsea are interested in bringing the Croat in ahead of next season.
According to FCInterNews, however, the player is not yet thinking about joining another club, while he has already rejected offers from MLS, Qatar, the Turkish league, and midtable clubs in the Premier League.
The 33-year-old’s priority is to remain competing for major honours as he feels that he still has more left to give.
The Nerazzurri are ready to offer him €4.5 million net per season, with or without add-ons, and it remains to be seen if they will go higher or come together with the player.
