Milan Skriniar shrugged off the €140m price-tag and confirmed he is negotiating a new contract with Inter.
The centre-back’s price-tag has gone up to well over €140m, according to Coach Luciano Spalletti.
“I don’t know if he was joking or not! As I’ve said before, I don’t think about my price-tag. I just focus on my work and doing the best I possibly can,” Skriniar told Inter TV.
“We’ve been playing every three days, so there hasn’t really been time to discuss the new contract. We’ll talk more when everything calms down a bit, nothing to worry about.
“I love it when I do something good and the San Siro crowd applauds, as it really moves me.”
The rapport with teammate Stefan de Vrij is going from strength to strength.
“From his first day at pre-season training, we shared a room. Having said that, he also did very well when playing alongside Miranda.”
