Henrikh Mkhitaryan snubs Roma contract extension 'in favour of fresh deal at Inter Milan' and commits to leaving on a free transfer after three years in the Italian capital
- Inter Milan are reportedly close to signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan on a free transfer
- The Armenian 'rejected Roma's final offer of €4.2m per year before add-ons'
- Roma only gave him 24 hours to consider the offer according to reports in Italy
- The midfielder helped Roma win the Europa Conference League last month
- Inter Milan would give him his first Champions League season since 2016/17
The 33-year-old initially joined Roma on loan from Arsenal in September 2019 before signing for free a year later.
And now it seems the Italian club are set to lose Mkhitaryan in the same way they won him, as he reportedly eyes an exit as a free agent.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan, 33, is ready for a new chapter with Inter Milan according to reports
The Armenian helped boss Jose Mourinho win Roma their first ever European trophy in May
According to Football Italia, Roma enhanced their bid to a salary worth in the region of €4.2m per year before add-ons and bonuses but gave Mkhitaryan a mere 24 hours in which to make his decision.
Numerous sources in Italy, including Sky Sport Italia and Gazzetta dello Sport, now claim that the Armenian has informed Roma that he will not extend his contract.
His five goals and nine assists in all competitions helped steer the Giallorossi to Europa Conference League triumph last month and Inter are reportedly closing in on a deal to bring him to the San Siro.
The midfielder joined Roma on loan from Arsenal in 2019 and later on a free transfer in 2020
Despite winning a first European trophy in their history, Roma only managed to secure Europa League qualification next season, whilst Inter can offer the attractive prospect of Champions League football to Mkhitaryan.
The midfielder has not featured in the Champions League since 2017/18, making four appearances for Jose Mourinho's Manchester United.
A swoop for Mkhitaryan would strengthen Inter's title surge next season, having just missed out on the Serie A trophy by two points to rivals AC Milan last month.
