Since the summer transfer window opened, Paris Saint-Germain was linked to Inter Milan Milan Škriniar, and while there were plenty of reports suggesting that a deal was close, it never occurred.
If PSG wants to add another central defender, they’ll need to look at other options since the 27-year-old is now off the market, as confirmed by Inter Milan boss Simone Inzaghi.
Italian manager shared his happiness that the Slovakia international will remain at the San Siro on Saturday, per Transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano.
“We’re really happy that Škriniar is no longer available on the market,” Inzaghi said. “It’s not easy to manage that kind of situations with the league ongoing and the market still open.”
PSG has gone to a backline of three this season under new manager Christophe Galtier. With Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, and even Sergio Ramos all possibly playing at the FIFA World Cup this November, the capital club needs another defender to rotate with the starters throughout the season.
Nordi Mukiele can play center-back, but the 24-year-old is also there to provide depth behind Achraf Hakimi, who will also be at the World Cup for Morrocco.
