Inter to hurt Milan Skriniar's career rushing him back for Champions League final
Operated from the back, Internazionale defender and future PSG player Milan Skriniar has resumed individual training and he's already touched the ball in different sessions earlier this week.
It's promising news for Inter Milan as they'll face Manchester City in the Champions League final on June 10, and they now expect to count on the center-back for a final time before he joins PSG next July.
Skriniar is determined to make his mark before bidding farewell to Inter Milan, with the UCL final the last match in his schedule while still under contract with the Serie A side.
The Slovakia international, who is nearing the end of his contract with Inter, is set to join Paris Saint-Germain next summer, a move that was already finalized during the winter transfer window. However, Skriniar has encountered some hurdles along the way and could join PSG banged up a bit, having undergone back surgery last April.
According to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, Skriniar was spotted at the club's training center, although he hasn't fully participated in team and collective sessions yet, instead working individually for now. The defender is still recuperating from surgery.
Skriniar underwent lumbar spine surgery to address an issue that had been troubling him since late February. Since experiencing the injury, he has only made one appearance for Inter, which was a brief cameo in the second leg of the Champions League round of sixteen clash against Porto, more than two months ago.
The defender, set to join PSG this summer, will not be fit in time to participate in any of Inter's three upcoming matches before the Champions League final, including the Coppa Italia final against Fiorentina and Serie A matches against Atalanta and Torino in the last two games of the league campaign.
Skriniar may still have a chance to don the Nerazzurri jersey one last time with the game against Manchester City still more than two weeks away.
Whether or not rushing Skriniar back to the field is the best decision for his future and the rest of his career is an entirely different debate, and having him on the starting XI for the matchup against Man City might prove costly. Of course, with Inter guaranteed to lose the defender next July as he will sign with PSG, though, that's a problem for Paris Saint-Germain to deal with and not one that Inter will care the least about.
