Inter Milan defender Cristian Chivu is looking at the possibility of staying with his current club after it has been recently revealed that a number of other big clubs have already shown interest in the player, who will be out of contract at the end of the season. The 31-year-old defender joined Inter Milan from Roma for € 16 million a few seasons ago. He is all set to depart the San Siro at the end of the season due to the fact he has not been able to reach an agreement with Inter Milan over the possibility of extending the contract.
With only a few months remaining on his current deal, Cristian Chivu has made an amazing U-turn by stating that he would like to stay with the club. The Romanian defender’s agent has revealed that there have been offers from Spain, Germany, and France for the 31-year-old defender. Recent reports suggest that Napoli could be in for the player should they qualify for the Champions League next season. Napoli are looking to have experience at the back in order to cope with the demands of Champions League football, and Cristian Chivu would certainly suit them well.
“We met with Inter last week and we were offered a renewal. We discussed a two-year contract, with the option for a third year. We have been contacted by other clubs and there are offers for Cristian from France, Germany and Spain too. Therefore, if we don’t reach an agreement with Inter then we will know who to turn to as there is interest. We’ll give Inter a clear and precise answer in two weeks,” said the agent of the Romanian defender in a recent interview. Real Madrid have also been credited with showing an interest in the player, with José Mourinho having already worked with him.
