Milan Skriniar, a 27-year-old central defender under contract until 2023 at Inter Milan, was Paris Saint-Germain’s priority to strengthen in this position this summer. But, despite a certain confidence at one point, it was not possible to find an agreement with the Italian club. This Monday, the newspaper The Parisian raises again this file with the Slovak who would always be the priority of the PSG. And the hope of a transfer would exist, for a price of one » twenty million euros.
“PSG is actively looking for a central defender. And remains convinced that Milan Skriniar would do the job perfectly. The Slovak, indisputable holder in Milan, remains in all conversations within the Parisian staff. In one month, a lot has already happened.
First, Inter inherited the strongest group in the group stage of the Champions League, with Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Viktoria Plzen. For now, the case is moderately engaged with a third place. An elimination would arrange the affairs of PSG since Inter would then have less « need » of its defender.
Stronger still, the links with the player. The capital club has had its agreement since the first months of 2022 and for the moment, it is holding since the person concerned has not extended in Lombardy. Twenty million euros could be enough to release him from his last six months in Italy. »
Nothing is impossible, since there is no particular reason for PSG to lose interest in a player who was a priority this summer and who is still out of contract in June 2023. There is an opportunity that can be very tempting, Especially since Paris clearly needs a defender, it’s public announcement. Skriniar fits the profile needed in the team very well. And he may be tempted by the possibility of evolving in a club capable of winning many titles, including the Champions League.
However, we remain cautious as long as there is nothing confirmed. Especially in terms of price. Which often changes in rumours, with a range around 20-30 million euros which remains quite wide and not official. Inter Milan can also still have a say. The outcome is far from clear, we will still have to wait for certainties.
