The backline at Paris Saint-Germain needs reinforcing if the capital club hopes to make a deep run in the UEFA Champions League. This past summer transfer window, the French giants had their eyes on Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar.
PSG sporting advisor Luis Campos had the Slovakian defender high on his list of targets, but the Ligue 1 side failed to secure a deal. Instead, the French giants banked on Skriniar not extending his contract, since it expires in June, with the Serie A side and then pursue him in January.
However, that may not be happening.
Foot Mercato reported on Tuesday that Skriniar’s wife, who first agreed to join Paris, finally made a backpedal.
According to the information from the French media outlet, she’s very attached to Italy and the Italian city and does not see herself leaving Milan to go to Paris next summer and lobbied the defender to stay.
Inter Milan has a reported four-year deal on the table for Skriniar with a salary below what PSG can offer at €7 million per year, making him the second highest-paid player on the team.
