It seems that Cristian Chivu staying at his current club Inter Milan is not certain after all. His agent has recently revealed that even though Inter Milan are interested in signing the Romanian on a lengthy contract in the future, he has a lot of options open.
Chivu’s agent has said that his client will not be making a decision until the end of the season. Inter Milan are extremely anxious to extend the contract of one of their best players, but it seems that the player has a lot of options on his hands. The former Roma star enters into the final few months of his current contract, and is currently eligible to speak with interested clubs.
Even though Inter Milan have not made a contract offer for the Romanian star, they are believed to be very much interested in extending his current contract. Inter Milan are transitional phase and they believe that retaining the club’s best players over the years like Cristian Chivu is crucial to their future success. Inter Milan have not been able to challenge for the top honours since the famous treble winning side under José Mourinho has been split apart by many transfer windows.
“We haven’t spoken to Inter yet and no meeting is planned” his agent told the Betfair Football Betting site. “I think we will meet up at the end of this month though. Are we optimistic about an extension? There is no need to feel optimistic, we’re not desperate. If there is an opportunity to stay at Inter then that will be good, otherwise we’ll assess other options.”
Chivu will hopefully have his future mapped out ahead of the European Championships, where the latest Euro 2012 Betting places his romanian team as favourites to qualify from their group for the knock-out stages.
