It is only a matter of days or even hours before the signing of Milan Skriniar at PSG. The Parisian club would achieve a great coup by stealing the great defender of Inter, very coveted in the transfer window. An operation facilitated by the Parisian side Achraf Hakimi.
He will undoubtedly be PSG’s first summer reinforcement. Milan Skriniar should sign soon with the Parisian club to come and garnish the central hinge. The Slovak defender represents a real good catch as he is part of the European and world elite. Taulier of Inter Milan, he has been recognized as the major central defender of Serie A for several seasons. If the financial power of PSG is indisputable, the file was far from being done as the competition is provided on the internal player. This was especially the case in England with interests from Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham among others.
Hakimi convinced Skriniar to join him at PSG
Big teams that are not lacking in financial power either, while Inter were expecting at least 60 million euros for their defender. But, PSG had a head start. A small asset present within it to convince Milan Skriniar to choose the Parisian project this summer rather than another. An advantage named Achraf Hakimi.

Indeed, according to Bein Sports, the Moroccan side participated in the recruitment process for the Slovak with whom he played at Inter Milan in 2020-2021. He called his former teammate in person to convince him of the merits of leaving for PSG. The five-year contract at eight million euros per year offered by Paris having done the rest. However, Hakimi could not push his former Italian team to lower their prices. Thus, Skriniar should sign at PSG against 65 million euros and bonuses given to Inter Milan that could raise the note to nearly 80 million euros.
