Chelsea Finally Reach Agreement With Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic
The 33-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and is set to depart the title contenders.
As per Sport Mediaset, via Sempte Inter, Perisic has agreed on a contract with Chelsea.
The Italian club have so far only been willing to offer him a contract with a salary of €4.5 million for the next two years as he demands a larger wage packet of €6 million.
It is unclear as to whether Chelsea have met this but it appears that they have offered higher than Inter in order to persuade him into a move.
Italian journalist Sandro Sabatini reported: “There is a rumour in the last few hours: Perisic has a practically already formalized agreement with Chelsea.
“Consequently, the possibility for Inter to increase the contract offer, which is currently €4.5 million for two years, would vanish.
“Perisic has already reached an agreement with Chelsea: the medical examinations and the last formalities to ratify the agreement are missing, but if the Croatian does not go to Chelsea we could be seeing a sensational twist.”
Perisic joined Inter from Wolfsburg in 2015 and spent the 19/20 season on loan at Bayern Munich, with it appearing that his next stop could be in London.
