Milan Skriniar staying at Inter and Francesco Acerbi joining the club represents a huge sigh of relief for Simone Inzaghi, according to a report in the Italian print media today.

As has been reported by Corriere della Sera, the Inter coach will be very relievd to be ending the summer transfer window with six central defenders at his disposal and the fact that one of them is Milan Skriniar.

He made it very clear to the hierarchy in August that it was now getting too late in the window to entertain the idea of selling Milan Skriniar to Paris Saint Germain and trying to sign a new player of even half his worth to the team.

The other thing that he made abundantly clear is that he needs a new central defender to be a replacement for Andrea Ranocchia, a player who provided very useful depth for Stefan de Vrij in the squad last season.
