Report: Spurs target Milan Skriniar set for new Inter contract
Links between Spurs and long-time target Milan Skriniar look set to go quiet – for a little while, at least – with Calciomercato reporting that the defender will sign a new contract with Inter Milan imminently.
Skriniar has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for some time now. And it was reported over the summer that Spurs had made a £30 million bid for the 26-year-old.
However, Inter snubbed that offer. And it now appears that Skriniar is ready to put any speculation over his future to bed.
According to Calciomercato, he did not consider a move to Tottenham. Instead, he instructed his agent to finalise a new deal with the Nerazzurri.
And Calciomercato suggests that his fresh terms are almost agreed. In fact, it is claimed that it is only a matter of time before the white smoke comes.
Skriniar is set to sign a deal until 2025. He is also set for a pay-rise, with his wages set to increase to around £66,000-a-week.
Skriniar contract will only put Spurs rumours for short period
Skriniar’s new contract will only have three years left to run when the current campaign concludes.
Spurs meanwhile, could potentially do with further depth at the heart of their defence. Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier and Joe Rodon all have a point to prove in the coming months.
So surely, there is every chance that the speculation surrounding Skriniar will only die down for a brief period.
He is a fantastic defender coming into the peak years of his career. So it seems unlikely that clubs will be deterred by him signing a new Inter contract.
