Inter Milan center-back Milan Skriniar has been a player in the rumor mill as of late. But regardless of the amount of interest from other clubs, he still aims to stay with the Italian side.
Skriniar has been patient with his run at Inter as of late. Following the team’s return to play after the lengthy coronavirus shutdown, Inter manager Antonio Conte benched Skriniar five times, including in the UEFA Europa League final. Still, Skriniar is fully committed to his future with Inter. He recently spoke (via CalcioMercato) about his desire to stay at the club.
“Nobody from Inter has told me they don’t want me,” Skriniar said. “Conte still wants me in Milan. It is not easy for him to choose who to play among 30 players available. Of course, he doesn’t make choices to hurt anyone. He chose for the good of the team and I have no reason to leave Inter. They still want me and I’ve always been involved in training.”
As mentioned, Skriniar has received notable interest from other clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira in July, Inter has considered selling Skriniar with PSG among the teams who have shown relative interest in a possible transfer deal. And in a recent report from the Italian-based outlet Tuttosport, Inter is considering a deal that would send the center-back to PSG in return for Argentine midfielder Leandro Paredes.
Inter will have to decide soon on whether to keep or sell Skriniar. Nonetheless, PSG will likely keep a close eye on the entire situation between the two sides.
