Inter Milan GM Marotta 'optimistic' about Skriniar contract

Inter Milan GM Beppe Marotta is confident securing Milan Skriniar to a new deal.

Marotta believes terms could be settled this month.

He said, “I am very optimistic.

“We are dealing with a serious professional who loves the shirt that he wears. It’s only right that he asks for what he is worth, Piero Ausilio and I will meet with his agent over the next few days to continue a very relaxed negotiation process.

“We want to reach a conclusion without pressure and I am optimistic, although I don’t know if we’ll be able to get it done before the team goes for the break on Sunday.

“I think we will find a conclusion within a few weeks.”
