Skriniar’s latest joy remains the Italian Super Cup he won against Milan in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Then it was as if the lights had gone out and things didn’t go the way the Slovakian defender had expected. A few hours after the fourth win of the Steven Zhang era, the third since Simone Inzaghi took over the Inter bank, Skriniar rejected the proposed extension of 6.5 million euros (including bonuses) for five years (it would become the highest paid defender have become in the world). Series a). A cold shower for the Viale Liberazione club to tarnish the stunning victory, which dominated from start to finish, in the derby.
Transfermarkt, today’s negotiations live
So Skriniar will move to PSG on a free transfer in June. It remains only to formalize the agreement. It will be possible to do so from February 1, the date from which players who expire on June 30 under FIFA rules can commit to the following year. The proposal is essential: 9.5 million a year plus a hefty signing bonus, mumbles the French press, of 25 million. Figures no longer equal for Inter. These are, of course, hours of reflection for the Nerazzurri as to whether they should let Skriniar leave immediately.
PSG could also try to make a purchase for 15 million as early as January (last summer they offered 55 around mid-August), but the Nerazzurri’s request is 20. «The decision to market Milan Skriniar was made in the summer taken by Inter , obviously not from the player. A choice that led to negotiations with PSG, of which we were of course aware,” Roberto Sistici told Ligurian broadcaster Telenord, the player’s agent. And again: «At some point the negotiations broke down and we too were informed about this, a decision that was not up to us and that Milan accepted calmly, with professionalism and respect for the contract. Last fall, we responded to the company’s meeting requests and submitted our economic request. At the beginning of November – Sistici added – the club made us an offer and before Christmas I communicated the decision not to accept. Before the Supercoppa Final, I also informed Marotta and Ausilio that we thought we were free to listen to offers from other clubs, which was the most correct way for us to proceed. I repeat, we have never missed an appointment with Inter».
And about PSG: “We have not spoken, just as we have not leaked our positions and those of Inter, given that we agreed with them to treat the matter with due confidentiality, in the interest of the team and of the player”. While waiting for Inter’s reply to these statements, the management defended the player, as did Inzaghi, and San Siro (65,476 spectators) decided not to berate their captain. Which, however, in the 40th minute of the match against Empoli, he was sent off for a second yellow card. Fixed the second yellow card for the dangerous play on Caputo. And before the Slovak, the last Inter player to be sent off during the first half in a Serie A match was Vecino on April 28, 2018 against Juventus, in that 2-3 draw that ended under the spotlight for Orsato’s management Race and for the audio Var is gone.
