Inter Refused To Sell Milan Skriniar After PSG President Al-Khelaifi Threatened To Try & Sign Him For Free Next Summer, French Media Report
Inter took Milan Skriniar off of the market for good after a remark by Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaifi that if they would not sell him this summer then the Parisians would sign him on a free transfer next summer,
This according to French news outlet L’Equipe, via FCInter1908, who report that the Nerazzurri construed this as a threat to try and undermine them, and decided to end negotiations with the French champions.
As L’Equipe detail, PSG had initial offers of €50 million plus a player, and then €55 million plus a player turned down by Inter, who made clear that they were only interested in cash for the Slovakian.
Inter’s stance was clear, and the Parisians grew frustrated with their stubbornness with regard to Skriniar, with President Al-Khelaifi remarking that the 27-year-old could well arrive in the French capital on a free transfer next summer.
After this point, Inter felt that this was a threatening remark, and decided that they would stop listening to offers from PSG, even though the French side have not necessarily lost interest in Skriniar.
