Inter are not willing to increase their contract offer to Milan Skriniar and will leave the defender to explain his reasons for leaving should he turn a new deal down.
According to Italian television broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, and as reported by FCInterNews.it, the Nerazzurri are not minded to go beyond the €6 million wages, plus bonuses, that has been presented to Skriniar.
Directors Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio believe that they have done everything they can to offer Skriniar a competitive salary that is in line with Inter’s top earners, other than Romelu Lukaku, and will not present agent Robert Sistici with improved terms.
Skriniar has entered the final six months of his existing deal and is free to begin negotiations with other clubs ahead of a move in the summer, and has attracted interest from Paris Saint-Germain and the Premier League.
Inter are still hopeful that the former Sampdoria defender will sign a new contract, but initial optimism earlier in the season is slowly dissipating.
Whilst there is no specified deadline for a decision, Inter cannot wait indefinitely and would like to know Skriniar’s intentions as soon as possible so that they can plan accordingly.
Should Skriniar reject Inter’s final offer and move on at the end of the season, it will be left to the 27-year-old to explain his decision, with the club putting the ball in his court after lengthy negotiations.
