Reports from France say Paris Saint-Germain are working on a January transfer for Milan Skriniar, whose Inter contract expires next year.
The 27-year-old Slovakian defender was at the center of speculation over a move to France in the summer, with the French giants keen on his signature. Inter rejected all offers from PSG, asking at least 70-80 million euros for Skriniar, and in the end they managed to keep him.
With less than a year left on his contract, they are looking to sign him to a new contract, but things are not that simple.
L’Equipe has detailed how PSG adviser Luis Campos is working on a new, functional offer for Skriniar in January, taking advantage of the fact that his contract is close to expiring. The injury of Presnel Kimpembe has convinced even more the team from Ligue 1 to transfer the Slovak.
Inter are hoping for a new contract with Skriniar that would see him earn €7m a season, but the player was doubtful when asked about his future at a press conference this week. “I don’t want to talk about my future and my contract, I don’t think it’s the right place and time,” he sighs.
A new contract deal would see PSG out of contention, but Inter will now face pressure from the French side if they fail to sign him.
