Despite trying everything to recruit Milan Skriniar during the last summer transfer window, Paris Saint-Germain fell out of favor with Inter. A little pride for Beppe Marotta.
It is not every day that a club and a player manage to resist the advances of the club from the French capital. Through a very high level sporting project, with the Champions League in sight thanks to players like Mbappé, Neymar or Messi, and a very strong financial power, PSG often manages to recruit its goals. During the last summer transfer window, Paris almost completed all their missions by recruiting players such as Vitinha, Ruiz, Soler, Renato Sanches, Mukiele or Ekitike. On the other hand, the practice of the central defender, much desired by Christophe Galtier, did not go well, given that Milan Skriniar has finally remained at Inter for this 2022-2023 exercise. Despite the expiration of the contract in a year, the Slovak international has not had a good exit from his leaders. A clear choice made by Beppe Marotta. “The transfer window is certainly positive, but the most important work has been done to keep our key players close. We were adamant on Skriniar. It was unsaleable despite offers from PSG.the CEO of Inter confided to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

If the Lombard club is therefore happy to keep Skriniar, the transfer window was not easy on this topic as well. Ever since PSG have multiplied transfer offers after finding a verbal agreement with the 27-year-old center-back. Except that, despite a last attempt of 65 million euros in the last hours of the transfer market, the Nerazzurri remained camped on their position, namely that of not giving up Skriniar within 75 ME. PSG’s main defensive goal, which would have liked to form a three-way hinge with Ramos and Marquinhos, the former Sampdoria player will now try to regain his best level under the orders of Simone Inzaghi. Before being in PSG’s sights again next winter? It is entirely possible, knowing that Skriniar will be potentially free next July and that Paris will always be on the lookout for defensive reinforcements.
