Milan Talks for PSG Defender Could Favour Inter’s Skriniar Saga

The exit of Alessio Romagnoli from Milan’s ranks has opened the door for the management to focus on reinforcing their defense ahead of the new season. His departure leaves Milan with four center-backs, but not all of them can be considered starters.

Keeping that in mind, the Rossoneri could execute a deal with Paris Saint-Germain for one of their men – which could in turn help the Parisians breathe new life into their efforts for a closely-linked transfer target from Inter.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan are in negotiations with PSG to sign Senegal stopper Abdou Diallo in a high-profile deal. Having been linked with him in the past, the Rossoneri management has taken steps to materialize the transfer.

Diallo is keen on moving away from Paris in the summer after falling behind in the club’s pecking order for a starting place. Moreover, with the World Cup on the horizon at the end of the year, the 26-year-old seeks more playing minutes – having appeared just 16 times last season. The AFCON champion has already been ‘seduced’ by the idea of wearing the red and black shirt, as per the reports.

Additionally, PSG have much to gain from this transfer taking place. First, they will rid themselves of the defender’s €5M net per season salary. But more importantly, it will help them gain funds that could be facilitated in the transfer of long-linked Milan Skriniar from Inter.

Talks with Inter have stalled over the last couple of weeks after PSG failed to meet the €80M asking price. Selling Diallo to Milan could be the key to PSG signing Skriniar from the Nerazzurri.
