“In Paris, glitter is over!” Here is the message sent this week by Nasser Al-Khelaïfi during his interview with the Parisian. And the president of Paris Saint-Germain sticks to his line of conduct. Indeed, the club of the capital does not intend to recruit big stars this summer but rather to strengthen with players less highlighted but just as talented. This is the mission that has therefore been entrusted to Luis Campos, who has already made good progress on the Vitinha (Porto) and Renato Sanches (LOSC) files. In defense, the Portuguese must do everything to get his hands on Milan Skriniar.
The Slovak is the priority for residents of the Parc des Princes this summer. For several weeks, they have therefore been active behind the scenes to enlist the rock of Inter Milan (48 starts in 48 matches this season, 4 goals). As indicated on our site, PSG therefore made an offer in the amount of €50m a few days ago for the 27-year-old player. But the Nerazzurri leaders rejected the Parisian proposal, they who want to recover 80 M€ for Skriniar. A player who is out of contract in 2023, let’s remember.
Skriniar said yes to PSG
After this first failure, the Parisians returned to the charge with an offer of around €60 million. Tuesday, TMW indicated that finally this file could be settled by the end of the week for a sum close to 70 M€. Good news for Parisians, who can believe it. This Friday, the trend is also positive since the Gazzetta dello Sport reveals that Milan Skriniar has said yes to PSG. The Slovak, who would receive a salary of 7.7 million euros per year, has agreed to join the champions of France.
The Italian publication explains that the player, who has not taken very well to the fact that his club wants to sell him this summer to finance the return of Romelu Lukaku, has seen Parisian interest with a good eye. Although life in Milan appeals to him and his family, the defender is ready for a new challenge after five years with the Lombards. Before giving his decision, Skriniar made a phone call to Achraf Hakimi, his former teammate at Inter who has been playing for a year in Paris. An exchange during which the Moroccan explained to him the project and the desire of the club to build a balanced eleven that can win all competitions. Which obviously convinced Milan Skriniar, ready to put on the PSG tunic. It only remains to find an agreement between clubs.
