Italian press reports revealed that Chelsea Football Club has reached an agreement with Inter Milan player, Ivan Perisic, about his inclusion in the next summer transfer season.
The Croatian player is scheduled to become a free agent at the end of the current season, when his current contract with Inter Milan expires.
And the English newspaper “The Sun” reported, quoting the Italian “Sports Mediaset”, that Chelsea had reached an agreement with Perisic regarding his inclusion in the upcoming summer transfers.
She explained that there is a valid agreement between the 33-year-old player and his new club, and is ready for official application.
She indicated that the Croatian winger only needs to complete the medical examination stage and sign the contract, before he becomes an official player at Stamford Bridge.
Perisic was willing to renew his contract with Inter Milan, for a period of three years, with a salary of 100,000 pounds a week.

But it didn’t happen because Inter Milan were only willing to offer a two-year deal, for £65,000-a-week.
An angry Perisic criticized the Italian club’s officials for failing to settle the new deal earlier.
On the other hand, Chelsea will have to wait until the club’s shares are fully acquired before they can sign any new players, or extend the deal for a top player.
