Inter Milan has made an official announcement regarding the departure of Milan Skriniar (along with fellow Inter players Danilo D'Ambrosio and Roberto Gagliardini) from the club. This confirms the expected news about the center-back, who is expected to join PSG ahead of next season after agreeing to terms with Paris Saint-Germain last February.
The three aforementioned players have left Internazionale after their contracts with the Serie A side ran out by the end of June, with the news getting confirmed on Friday. This marks the end of their respective tenures at Inter Milan.
Milan Skriniar, who is still in the middle of his prime while aged 28 and serving as the captain of Slovakia's national team, spent six seasons in Milan playing at Inter FC.
Skriniar helped his now-former club to win a Serie A title, two Italian Cups, and two Italian Super Cups during his time with the club. Skriniar made 246 appearances and found the back of the net 11 times, no small feat for a center-back like he is.
However, his most recent season was plagued by injuries, causing him to miss more than 20 games across various competitions.
"Since his arrival in the summer of 2017, Skriniar has been one of the key figures in Inter's remarkable growth journey, which began with their return to the Champions League in 2018," said Inter's official statement.
PSG are now able to announce the signing of Skriniar as he's currently not linked to any particular club, at least until his agreement and contract with PSG are made official by both parties and more prominently the French team ahead of the upcoming 2023-24 season.
This is a true coup for the capital club and reigning Ligue 1 champions considering they have signed one of the best defenders in football on a free transfer following his departure from Inter as a free agent.
