Paris Saint-Germain have made Inter an offer of €50 million for defender Milan Skriniar, but the Nerazzurri would want at the very least €70 million.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Parisians’ have made their interest known and could make even more of a financial push for the Slovak defender.
Skriniar is one of PSG’s main targets for the summer transfer window, and the French champions’ newly-appointed Sporting Director Luis Campos was in Milan yesterday where he sounded out the Nerazzurri on the possibility of a deal for the 27-year-old.
The initial offer was for around €50 million, which is not very close to the Nerazzurri’s asking price as they value Skriniar at at least €70 million.
However, PSG are far from giving up in their chase of Skriniar, and they will almost certainly test Inter’s resolve with an improved offer soon.
Skriniar could well be the player who is sold this summer with a big name sale still likely to be necessary to meet financial goals, and if PSG make an offer which convinces both the Nerazzurri and the player then he should be on his way.
However, the Nerazzurri are still hoping to keep hold of the 27-year-old and are preparing to try and tie him down to a new contract as well.
Skriniar’s current contract is set to run out at the end of June 2023, but the clear expectation between he and the club has always been that should a massive offer not arrive that convinces both he and the club then he will be given a long-term deal.
The Nerazzurri would be ready to offer Skriniar wages of €6 million net per season on a new deal, in line with other top earners at the club.
