According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter have given an ultimatum to Ivan Perisic and expect him to make a decision over his contract extension by the weekend, but the Croatia international has also received offers from aboard, probably from Chelsea and Newcastle.
Perisic’s contract runs out in the summer and the Serie A giants raised their offer during a meeting with the player’s agent yesterday.
Frane Jurcevic refused to rule out Perisic’s contract extension yesterday, but according to Gazzetta, he informed the club’s directors that he had received a higher offer from abroad.
Inter have offered Perisic a new €5m-a-year contract plus add-ons to reach €6m per year. However, the player’s representative informed the Nerazzurri that foreign clubs have offered the former Bayern Munich star a €6m-a-year contract plus add-ons.
Chelsea and Newcastle are believed to be interested in the 33-year-old, but Juventus have also made a similar offer to sign the winger on a free transfer.
Inter need to cut their wage bill by 15% but have still offered their star a pay rise, given that Perisic is on a €4.8m-a-year deal at the Stadio Meazza. The Nerazzurri expect a final decision from Perisic by the weekend.
