Inter defender Milan Skriniar has decided to reject the interest of Paris Saint-Germain in order to extend his contract with the Nerazzurri.

This according to French news outlet, who report that the 27-year-old is close to extending his deal at Inter after decisively choosing not to make the switch to the French capital.

Skriniar had at one point looked close to accepting a move to PSG, particularly during the summer transfer window.

However, the Slovakian did not end up making the transfer to Paris before the summer window slammed shut.

The French champions have remained strongly interested in Skriniar’s signature, and have been hoping to either sign him in January, or on a free transfer next summer.

However, the Nerazzurri have also been pushing to extend the 27-year-old’s contract.

According to FootMercato, Skriniar has made the decision to reject a higher offer from the Parisians, and will sign a new deal with the Nerazzurri worth around €7 million net per season.

The French outlet reports that one important factor in the defender’s decision is the fact that he is settled in Milan, and that his partner prefers to stay in the city rather than move to Paris.
