Capitalizing on his impressive freshman season last year and on to his continued show of emotion this season, Inter Milan are finally putting to bed any rumors of Milan Skriniar going anywhere next season.

The Nerazzurri and Skriniar have agreed on a one-year addition to his current contract along with a raise in wages to €3 million plus bonuses per season to start. That figure will increase each year of the contract.

Additionally, there is no release clause on the new deal.

The wage will nearly double from the €1.7 million Skriniar made this season.

The new deal is all but done. Both sides are waiting on an official announcement because Skriniar recently changed his representation.

The reasoning for the change in agents, as reported by Gianluca Di Marzio (so take it for what you will), is because the previous agent had discussed the possibility of Inter selling Skriniar to another club. Once Skriniar found that out, he fired his agent and negotiated directly with the club. (Again, it’s Di Marzio, so there’s that.)

But, it could be related to this report from Skriniar’s home country of Slovakia.

Skriniar joined Inter in 2017 after the club paid €28 million to Sampdoria.

This new deal once signed, should lay to rest discussions of Skriniar going to Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Barcelona … or any other club that’s been linked to him in the last eight months.

One thing to think about though:

Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij and Diego Godin.

Just let that permeate for a bit.
