Chivu agrees to Inter stay

Cristian Chivu is set to extend his contract with Inter, as his agent reveals terms on a new deal having been agreed.

The Romanian defender’s future at the club was up for debate this summer, as his contract was set to expire at the end of June and a number of clubs were reportedly interested in his services.

However, the player’s agent has today confirmed that he has accepted the Nerazzurri’s offer of a new three-year deal, even with a €500,000 a season pay-cut.

“We have reached an agreement with Inter for the renewal,” Victor Becali told

“Everyone thought that Chivu would leave, but they called us in at Inter and we have reached this agreement. Chivu will renew for three years at €3m a season, the agreement is final.”
