Chelsea Ready To Sign Inter Milan Star For Free
At the conclusion of this season, the 27-year-contract old’s at San Siro will expire. According to a story from a few days ago, Inter must strengthen their contract. If they want to continue using the Slovakian as captain after this season.
In recent years, Skriniar has been among the best centre backs in Europe. He play a significant role in the defence as Inter won the Serie A championship in 2021. After joining the Nerazzurri in 2017, he has raise the bar on his performance.
Chelsea should ideally be searching for a replacement for experience Thiago Silva at centre defence. The 38-year-old Brazil captain is extremely unlikely to continue after this season. He hasn’t made a decision about an extension of his contract, which expires in the summer. Skriniar possesses all the characteristics required to be the ideal Silva successor.
The 27-year-old is extremely experienced, physically strong, has superb game reading skills, and is an excellent passer of the ball.
The Blues have also be link with Josko Gvardiol of RB Leipzig, a younger player at the age of 20. His value is increase by the excellent World Cup he is having.
It goes without saying that Skriniar will provide us a tonne of experience. Fit center backs have a long shelf life, and we can’t rule out the former Sampdoria player playing well into his 30s, making him a wise choice to sign in the short and long terms and maybe for nothing.
