Inter are getting closer and closer to agreeing a contract extension with defender Milan Skriniar.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that while there is still work to be done, things look optimistic that the Slovakian international will be ready to sign a new deal worth around €6.5 million net per season.

The contract negotiations have been well underway with Skriniar’s representatives since the first formal meeting held shortly after Inter’s Champions League win over Viktoria Plzen.

The Nerazzurri are set to offer the 27-year-old a deal worth around €6.5 million net per season.

This would put the former Sampdoria defender in line with what other top earners such as Lautaro Martinez and Marcelo Brozovic earn, apart from striker Romelu Lukaku.

The details of a contract must still be worked out between Inter and Skriniar’s representatives.

However, the will of the player is very much to remain at the Nerazzurri, and the contacts have been ongoing and aimed towards a speedy resolution to the talks.

Skriniar is ready to reject a higher potential offer from Paris Saint-Germain and commit his future to Inter.
