Although Paris Saint-Germain failed to land Inter Milan Milan Škriniar this summer, it doesn’t mean their interest in the player is going away.
On Thursday, L’Équipe (h/t Paris Fans) reported that they could revisit their pursuit of the Slovakian defender in January to either add him during the winter transfer window or sign him to a pre-contract.
Škriniar’s contract with the Italian club expires next summer, and if there’s no extension signed from now until Jan. 1, 2023, PSG could begin talking with the player over playing in the French capital for the 2023-24 season.
As a result, Inter Milan faces a lot of pressure to ensure they can extend their star defender with PSG lurking in the shadows waiting for January to come around.
Meanwhile, PSG hopes they can man the fort this season with five capable center-backs after loaning out Abdou Diallo to RB Leipzig. However, it will be interesting to see whether sporting advisor Luis Campos waits until January or next summer to improve the unit.
