As reported by Foot Mercato, PSG are now confident over signing Inter Milan defender Milan Škriniar this summer transfer window.
The Slovakian defender is PSG’s main target to strengthen their defence this off-season and the Paris club believes the deal for the 27-year-old can be closed relatively quickly despite reports from Italy initially suggesting that the player was keen to stay at Inter Milan who outbid PSG’s first salary offer earlier this season – but PSG have succeeded in convincing the player otherwise.
Škriniar’s arrival could weaken the position of Presnel Kimpembe or Sergio Ramos at PSG, although any new coach could yet favour three central defenders which would minimise the impact of Škriniar’s signing despite Kimpembe seeking assurances from the club’s hiercahy over his position.
Inter were reported to have turned down a €50m offer from PSG for Škriniar last week with the Nerazzurri wanting €80m. Škriniar sees his contract expire at the end of next season and, although extension talks had been opened with the 2020/21 Serie A title winners, the arrival of PSG at the table has now changed the situation.
