In his press conference before facing Toulouse on Wednesday evening, Paris Saint-Germain manager Christophe Galtier spoke about the club’s move for Inter Milan defender, Milan Skriniar – and still believes it would be possible to bring the player to the club with only a few days until the transfer window closes, as transcribed by L’Équipe:
“I can’t tell you that it’s completely over. In a mercato, there are always surprises. Milan has been a target for a long time. The negotiations with Inter are very difficult. You have to respect their position. But with two days to go, anything is possible.”
The club’s long-running pursuit of Inter Milan man Milan Škriniar has stagnated for some weeks with Inter reportedly pulling the plug on talks after PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s intervention earlier this week. Inter have reiterated to PSG they won’t accept a €50m plus add-ons deal for Škriniar who is set to be offered a new contract in Italy. Paris also opened talks with Leipzig’s Mohamed Simakan (22) earlier this month but nothing came of the approach.
