From De Vrij & D’Ambrosio To Bastoni & Calhanoglu – Inter Milan To Prioritize Contract Extension Talks After January, Italian Media Report
Inter are set to get to work on a number of contract situations at the club starting next month.
This according to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri’s next priority after the January transfer window closes will be not wasting any time in contract extension talks with various players.
First of all is the situation of striker Edin Dzeko, whose contract Inter want to extend past the end of the current season.
Talks with the Bosnian’s agent Alessandro Lucci have already begun, and the Nerazzurri are hoping to wrap them up in the near future.
Meanwhile, captain Samir Handanovic will have to decide whether to extend his deal past the end of June, move to another club, or hang up his boots.
According to Mediaset, there is a good chance that the Slovenian will retire from playing and join the Nerazzurri coaching staff.
Meanwhile, Danilo D’Ambrosio is set to be offered an extension on his contract which currently runs out at the end of the season, but it will be at lower wages than he currently earns, and it will remain to be seen if the 34-year-old accepts.
Lastly, Inter do not want to waste any time in progressing negotiations with the representatives of both defender Alessandro Bastoni and midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu.
Mediaset report that the Nerazzurri have already spoken with the agents of both players, as they do not want another situation like that of Milan Skriniar who now looks set to leave at the end of his current contract.
Both of the duo’s deals currently expire at the end of June 2024.
According to Mediaset, in both cases the opening talks have been very positive as both players would like to extend their deals, although wages have yet to be discussed.
