Inter to Reject PSG Hail-Mary Attempt for Star Defender

PSG haven’t completely given up for Milan Skriniar, but Inter will continue to shut the door. At this point, it would take an irresistible offer for the Slovak to depart. Ownership would have to take full responsibility because the management and the coaching staff consider him untouchable.

As per La Gazzetta dello Sport, the French outfit plans to up their bid to €60M plus an undetermined makeweight. It’s conspicuous raise considering that their previous offer amounted to €50M. While the Nerazzurri could have caved at those numbers early on, they would have little time to replace him properly so late in the window.

Inter strongly considered selling Skriniar to PSG up until a month ago to address their financial needs. But the counterpart never reached their price tag. They have raked in money in different ways afterward, cashing in on youngsters Andrea Pinamonti and Cesare Casadei.

Barring a major surprise before deadline day, the Nerazzurri will reprise the extension talks with the defender in September. They had arranged a multi-year contract with €6M wages before the summer. They will have to rediscuss its length and the add-ons because the Ligue 1 giants had tempted the center-back with a larger deal. But La Beneamata isn’t concerned he will turn down its offer and leave on a free in 2023, as some French reports suggest.

Our Take on Skriniar, Inter, and PSG

It has taken the Nerazzurri forever to find a backup defender, so bringing in a worthy starter in so little time would be a massive challenge, although the links to Manuel Akanji have suspiciously continued to linger. The threat will be there until the bell rings, but they should manage to hold onto him.
