Paris Saint-Germain’s efforts to persuade Inter defender Milan Skriniar to join on a free transfer with a signing-on fee of €25 million have been blasted by Italian journalist Fabio Caressa.
Skriniar is out of contract at Inter this summer and appears set to make the move to France and PSG, after refusing to sign a new deal with the Nerazzurri, and in addition to an increase in wages, it is reported that he will receive a substantial bonus for joining the Paris club.
In an interview with Italian radio station Radio Deejay earlier today, and as reported by FCInterNews.it, Caressa was deeply critical of PSG’s reported offer of €25m to Skriniar, and felt that UEFA had to step in to stop clubs from offering such astronomical figures to players.
“It’s a scandal, what are we talking about? It’s time to stop,” the Sky Sport Italia journalist declared.
“If UEFA wants to do things seriously, it will be necessary to intervene on the circumventions of the rules. One club plays with some rules and one with others.”
Meanwhile, Caressa also argued that whilst Skriniar was an important player, he could still be replaced by Inter this month, and that the same applied to fellow centre-back Stefan De Vrij as he approached the end of his Nerazzurri contract.
“Are Inter afraid of losing him in January? He’s a good defender, but he’s still a defender, he can be replaced. The same goes for de Vrij,” he added.
Skriniar joined Inter from Sampdoria in 2017 and has made 241 appearances for the club in all competitions.
