Romanian defender Christian Chivu will first be opening talks with his current club Inter Milan before deciding on the offers from other clubs. Christian Chivu is one of the many top quality players available on a free transfer in the summer.
His contract has only a few months to go before its expiry. The former Roma defender is now one of the sought-after players according to his agent, who has said that clubs like Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Ajax have shown interest in signing the defender. However, he has also revealed that his client will first be interested in listening to the offer from Inter Milan before thinking about moving elsewhere.
It is highly unlikely that the offer from Inter Milan will be able to compete with the offers from other clubs given that the Milan club are currently in financial difficulties. Wages has proven to be a major issue for the Milan club, which won the Champions League title back in 2010, and the exit of Christian Chivu could prove to be a boon for the club. Christian Chivu is one of the players on a high wages at the San Siro. The 31-year-old, though, has a lot of football left in him according to his agent.
“We have not yet spoken to anyone. The situation has not changed recently. I don’t know when we will talk with Inter, but we will listen to them first, before possibly talking with other teams,” agent Joan Becali said to Il Sussidiario. Christian Chivu has been at Inter Milan for five seasons now during which time he has won every major trophy with the club including the Champions League title back in 2010 and also numerous domestic league titles. He has made more than 100 appearances in the league for Inter Milan.
Manchester City remain firm favourites for his signature.
