The likely contract extension of defender Milan Skriniar at Inter would be a significant failure for Paris Saint-Germain Sporting Advisor Luis Campos in the transfer market.

This is the verdict of French news outlet, who argue that the Portuguese executive’s failure to land the 27-year-old after such a high profile pursuit would be a significant black mark for him.

It was never any secret that PSG were keen on signing Skriniar during the summer.

The transfer links emerged relatively early on in the transfer window, and reports suggested that the admiration that Campos had for the player was a key reason for their interest.

However, in the end Inter decided against selling the Slovakian as the transfer window slammed shut.

This came as a blow to the Parisians, although Skriniar remained a major target for them.

Campos and PSG’s strategy changed to trying to convinced the defender not to sign a new deal with Inter, given that his current contract expires at the end of June 2023, and to instead come to the French capital either in January or on a free transfer next summer.

However, the Slovakian looks to have made his decision, with reports suggesting that he will soon sign a new contract with Inter.

For Inter CEO Beppe Marotta, the optimism around the situation looks looks like a major victory, but on the other hand for Campos, the situation has not gone according to plan in the least.
