Former Inter defender Daniele Adani has criticised the club for not being prepared to replace centre-back Milan Skriniar, as he closes in on a switch to Paris Saint-Germain.
Slovakia international Skriniar is out of contract at Inter this summer and is yet to sign new terms, with reports suggesting that he is on the verge of agreeing a move to PSG as a free agent in July.
Appearing on Christian Vieri’s Bobo TV Twitch stream, and as reported by FCInterNews.it, Adani felt that Inter ought to have cashed in on Skriniar last summer when it became clear they could risk losing him for free, and that a replacement ought to have been identified two years ago.
“Why didn’t Inter sell Skriniar in July?” Adani questioned.
“It was in economic necessity that Inter could not get wrong. Now Skriniar and PSG are gaining, Inter are the only ones losing out.
“The player is in control, he can refuse Inter’s offer because the French team offer him twice as much.
“If he doesn’t renew, you can’t bench him. Plus Inter have to get a replacement, something they had to think about two years ago.”
Skriniar joined Inter from Sampdoria in 2017 and has made 241 appearances for the Nerazzurri, scoring 11 goals.
The former Zilina defender has lifted the Serie A title, as well as the Coppa Italia and two Supercoppa Italianas with Inter, but appears set to depart at the end of the current campaign.
