PSG Coach Christophe Galtier On Failure To Sign Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar: “Wanted To Reinforce In January, Now We’ll Rely On Young Players”
Paris Saint-Germain head coach Christophe Galtier makes no secret of the fact that he and his club had been hoping to strengthen their squad in the January transfer window, amid failed pursuits of Inter’s Milan Skriniar and Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech.
Speaking in a press conference, via FCInterNews, the French coach noted that after failing to land their targets last month, the French champions are thus set to rely more on young players in their squad.
Inter defender Skriniar is strongly linked with PSG, as the 27-year-old has reportedly already agreed to join the Parisians in the summer.
However, PSG had also been hoping not to wait that long, as they tried to bring the Nerazzurri man to the French capital before the January transfer window slammed shut.
Meanwhile, the Parisians had looked close to bringing in Chelsea winger Ziyech, but reports suggest that issues with the documentation with the transfer meant that the Moroccan was not able to be signed before the transfer deadline.
“We would have liked to make up for the loss of Pablo Sarabia and had been targeting Ziyech,” the coach admitted.
“We wanted to reinforce the squad with new signings, but unfortunately we were unable to and so now we’ll have to rely on young players,” he added.
