Inter still waiting for Milan Skriniar, PSG might have deal in place for defender
Inter are still negotiating a contract extension with Milan Skriniar. The Slovak's current contract ends next June and no agreement has been reached yet. This situation could benefit PSG and there are growing concerns in the Italian organization.
The soap opera around the future of Milan Skriniar is still far from over. With a contract that ends next June, the Slovak defender has not yet closed his renewal with Inter.
Courted by PSG last summer, the 27-year-old is starting to generate more than a few doubts about his future. In recent weeks, optimism has been on the side of the Lombard club regarding the outcome of the negotiations between both parties, though Inter are fearing they might be losing the battle for the defender.
Inter thought that with Skriniar not appearing in the World Cup the contract negotiations would go smoothly and quickly in their favor. That has not been the case, as talks have seemingly stalled.
The World Cup is drawing to a close now but talks haven't really moved forward between Inter and Skriniar, making the Nerazzurri believe they might be getting left out in the cold by the veteran defender.
According to information from Sky Italia, the situation is still fluid although there is no set date to obtain the Slovakian's response. Inter, however, would like to complete the renewal in January.
Confidence is growing in Paris regarding a possible signing of Milan Skriniar
Considered Luis Campos' priority target this summer, Milan Skriniar continues to be followed by PSG to strengthen his defense. According to information from Calciomercato, Inter have put pressure on his protégé.
"In France, they are convinced that they have now reached an agreement with the player based on a salary of more than €9M and that in June Skriniar will join Paris for free from Inter," writes the media outlet.
If an agreement is not reached in the coming weeks, Inter could still think about the opportunity to recover a certain amount of money by opening the door to the departure of their player in the winter transfer window.
Although Inter will never recoup as much money as they would have with a sale last summer, though, it would at least be something more than losing Skriniar for nothing next June. As thing stand, it looks like PSG would be happy with waiting and landing the defender next summer for free rather than paying for him now.
