According to Ignazio Genuardi PSG have raised their offer for Inter Milan defender Milan Škriniar (27) to €50 million plus €5 million in bonuses – but Inter Milan are still demanding €80 million, or at least €65-70 million excluding bonuses. There has not yet been a counter-offer.
The Nerazurri are reportedly not desperate to keep the Slovakian central defender and, as Foot Mercato reported earlier this week, PSG are confident a deal can be made for the 27-year-old relatively quickly and have convinced the player on salary terms.
Last week Inter turned down a €50 million offer for Škriniar, whose contract expires at the end of next season. Whilst extension talks had been opened with the Serie A side, PSG have somewhat disrupted the situation.
The arrival of Škriniar could have a domino effect within the PSG squad with a new element of added depth to the Parisian defence – either Presnel Kimpembe’s or Sergio Ramos’s position within the squad could be severely weakened.
Despite this, a move for Škriniar is looking as likely as ever, and could be a major coup for new sporting advisor at PSG Luis Campos.
