The Nerazzurri are working on extending their key players’ contracts. Skriniar will be the next one they’ll sit down with after shaking hands with Alessandro Bastoni, Lautaro Martinez, and Nicolò Barella.
According to Calciomercato.com, the Serie A champions will open talks with the Slovakia international at the beginning of 2022.
Inter want to tie the defender down to a new deal.
His current €3m-a-year deal expires in June 2023 and Inter are reportedly open to offering him a new €4m contract until June 2025.
The 26-year-old is a regular starter under Simone Inzaghi and has played 15 games across all competitions, playing all of them from start to finish.
He’s only missed one game at a club level since the beginning of the season.
However, according to the same report, his defensive partner Stefan de Vrij could leave San Siro in the summer.

Calciomercato.com reports the Dutchman will be the player ‘Inter will sacrifice’ should they need to sell one more star to balance the books.
However, according to multiple reports in Italy, his agent Mino Raiola is trying to find a Premier League club for his client.
