A priority target for Paris Saint-Germain to strengthen its defense this summer, Milan Skriniar is in no hurry to leave Inter Milan. The file is complicated but not impossible for the PSG.
Skriniar is targeted by PSG
Paris Saint-Germain are keen on Milan Skriniar (27). For several days, the name of the central defender of Inter Milan is associated with the club of the capital. And for good reason, the new PSG sports adviser, Luis Campos, has made the Slovak international his defensive priority for this summer transfer window.
PSG want a new central defender
Not totally reassured by the Marquinhos-Kimpembe hinge this season, while Sergio Ramos has played little due to physical problems, Parisian decision-makers want to recruit an additional element in central defense to bring new competition. The very successful Skriniar is considered the ideal recruit.
In this case, Inter Milan is not opposed to the departure of its talented defender to restore oxygen to its finances. In this sense, the nerazzurri leaders are ready to listen to offers. Paris SG have already offered 50 million euros, but the vice-champion of Italy is asking for at least 70 million euros to sit around a table and negotiate a sale, according to the Italian press. The positions are therefore still far apart.
Skriniar wants to stay Inter, but…
Another obstacle for Paris: the will of the Slovak international. The latter has not changed his mind since his statement on his future last March and still wants to stay with the Nerazzurri by extending his contract which expires in June 2023, according to the Italian site Calciomercato. The native of Ziar nad Hronom is totally involved in the Inter project and feels good in the Lombard city. Moreover, he feels he is an important member of the team and aims to one day become its captain.
Even if the file therefore seems complicated for the PSG at first sight, it is not yet put away in the closet. Indeed, the transalpine media specifies that the player will not oppose a departure if his management wishes to sell him and finds an agreement which suits him with another club. The door is therefore not completely closed for the champion of France, who will have to convince Inter at first.
