Edin Dzeko was coy when discussing the possibility of a new contract with Inter, wanting to delay the conversation.
The 36-year-old Bosnian forward joined the Nerazzurri from Roma last year in a deal worth around €2.8m, signing a two-year contract. Dzeko did well in his debut season under Simone Inzaghi, scoring 17 goals and providing 10 assists across 49 appearances, and this season he’s been even more important considering the injury to Romelu Lukaku, netting nine in 21 games.
Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Dzeko first commented on the possibility of signing a contract renewal with Inter. His current deal expires with the club at the end of this season.
“Let’s put it this way, my will is to do well until June and the rest will follow. I won’t add anything else.”
He then spoke about his teammate Milan Skriniar and if he’ll pen a new deal with the Nerazzurri. The defender has been heavily linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
“It’s obvious that it would be important, in the future he could become the captain. We all love him, but everyone has to make the best choices for his life and no one has the right to get involved in that.”
Inter are interested in tying down Dzeko to a new short-term deal, reportedly offering a one-year contract, but the player is hoping for a two-year commitment.
