PSG Mulling Milan Starlet as Fallback Defensive Target

PSG continue to eye Serie A to find a defender, as they are tracking Pierre Kalulu as a possible alternative to Milan Skriniar. The Milan youngster recently changed his agent, which forced the club to restart the negotiation to prolong his contract. He’s currently tied to the Scudetto winners until 2025.

As per French outlet Le10Sport, the French champions will consider switching target if Inter don’t let their ace depart in January. Or sign both center-backs at the same time. Despite the rumors, the Nerazzurri have yet to meet his representative to reprise the extension talks. It will likely happen during the World Cup break.

According to Calciomercato, Milan aren’t concerned with PSG targeting Kalulu. They remain confident they will strike a deal. He has chosen the Staller Sports agency led by Jonathan Barnett. They also represent newcomer Sergino Dest. A first summit should take place relatively soon.

The prodigy hasn’t received a new contract since he joined on a cheap move from Olympique Lyonnais. He eventually climbed through the hierarchy to become a full-time starter. He makes just €400k per year, and he’s in line for a substantial pay bump.

Our Take on PSG Eyeing Kalulu

There’s no doubt he would be a quality addition for any team. He’s already solid and dependable but still very young. Anybody can feel the pull of playing in their home country, but there’s no reason why the Rossoneri would sell him anytime soon. It’s likely just rumors spread by his new camp to put pressure on the management on the new contract, which is due.
