PSG and Inter Expected to Meet Midway in Skriniar Saga

Inter are hesitant to let star defender Milan Skriniar leave despite PSG submitting a renewed bid of €60M – €53M plus €7M – including add-ons and bonuses. However, they are still quite a way off the €80M demand.

Despite the distance in the respective parties’ valuation of the stopper, it looks like the Parisians are hesitant on giving up on the Slovak after new sporting director Luis Campos’ intention of bolstering his side’s ranks.

PSG and Inter are expected to reach an agreement for Skriniar somewhere in between the current financial tug-of-war, around the €70M mark, including add-ons and bonuses. Having been proposed an annual salary of approximately €9M, the defender will be earning twice as much as he does currently at the Nerazzurri. Nonetheless, he has never asked to leave the Serie A runners-up and would remain in Milan willingly if given the opportunity.

With the 27-year-old probably bound to leave, as the Nerazzurri prepare to welcome Torino sensation Gleison Bremer after renewed talks. One of the main reasons why Inter are prepared to sell Skriniar to PSG is that the deal will bring a clear advantage to the club’s budget. Otherwise, such a technical sacrifice would not be made, according to Corriere dello Sport (via FCInterNews).
