PSG Improve Their Bid to Acquire Inter Star Skriniar

PSG are making progress in their attempt to acquire Milan Skriniar from Inter. The French champions have increased their previous offer. Although, they have yet to match the asking price of the Nerazzurri. Instead, they are in advanced talks with the player on personal terms.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Parisians have proposed €50M. The Italian side wants €70M, but they appear more accommodating than in previous weeks. The two outfits could ultimately meet at €60M plus add-ons, the outlet speculates.

Skriniar and PSG have an agreement in principle on a multi-year contract at €7M wages. The defender would accept the destination but will not force his way out. He has just a year left on his contract with the Nerazzurri. However, the parties would quickly pen an extension if he stayed put this summer.

Inter director Alessandro Antonello suggested the club has to sell somebody to bankroll their acquisitions.

“In this phase, it is paramount to conjugate competitiveness and financial sustainability. That is what we are trying to do and what will inspire our transfer market choices. UEFA are devising the boundaries of the new Financial Fair Play, which will come into effect in 2024/2025, and we have to start abiding by them. Romelu Lukaku is eager to return, but we have to assess the economic viability of the deal. We will seek to complete it in the most appropriate times.”

Our Take on PSG Getting Closer to Skriniar

It appears that the Slovenian ace will be the one to depart in the Inter defense despite seemingly being a lock to stay in the lead-up to the summer window. That goes to show how fickle the transfer market can be. The Nerazzurri will probably sign an adequate replacement, but it would be a major blow nonetheless.
