The Italian press makes new revelations about Skriniar
Posted on September 9, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. by Axel Cornic
As we told you very early this summer, Milan Skriniar was the top priority for Luis Campos, who was determined to strike at least one very big blow in central defense. However, Paris Saint-Germain never seemed able to accede to the demands of Inter, where things do not seem to be going very well since the end of the transfer window.
Considered one of the best defenders in Serie A, Milan Skriniar could have discovered a new championship this summer, with Ligue 1. As of June 16, we announced to you on le10sport.com the great interest in Luis Campos, who wished to offer defensive reinforcements to Christophe Galtier. Whether Nordi Mukiele, who can cover the right central position has arrived, the PSG failed in negotiations with theInter for Skriniar. It must be said that the Milanese club demanded no less than 70M€ for a player who had less than a year of contract left, even going up to 80M€ at the very end of the transfer window.

PSG finds itself with only three professional defenders
Since this failure, Christophe Galtier must deal with a fairly low bench depth in central defense. Behind Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe and Sergio Ramos, the coach of PSG has no central defender by trade and experience. Danilo Pereira and Mukiele can help out in this position, but it’s too little for a club that aims to win everything, in a season with a particularly busy schedule. Other avenues had been tried by Luis Campos during the transfer window as with Axel Disasi, but none seemed able to go all the way.
« Skriniar has told us several times of his desire to continue the adventure here »
If at PSG we bite our fingers, what about Milan Skriniar ? The latter is indeed experiencing a rather complicated start to the season and according to the Italian media there is no doubt: he has not yet digested his failed transfer to the PSG. Enough to roll out the red carpet at Luis Campos in view of the winter transfer window? Not really, since the Nerazzurri recently talked about a contract extension for the Slovak. « Skriniar has told us several times of his desire to continue the adventure here declared Managing Director Giuseppe Marotta. » We will start negotiations as soon as possible, so that he can stay with us. « .
Inter use Skriniar to put pressure on Inzaghi
This Friday, The Gazzetta dello Sport reveals another facet of this case, which seems to be creating some tension in northern Italy. The coach Simone Inzaghi would be in turmoil after a difficult start to the season and a meeting with its leaders would therefore have taken place recently. At this meeting, the President steven zhang would have expressed his confidence in the 46-year-old Italian technician, but would still have underlined the sacrifices made by the club this summer to offer him a substantial workforce. Milan Skriniar is of course the biggest, since the 70M€ bonus included that would have offered the PSG during the transfer window would have been more than welcome at theInterwhere the balance of accounts is scrutinized closely.
