Paris-saint Germain manager, Christophe Galtier has openly confirmed that the Parisien club has reached an agreement with Inter Milan’s ace Milan Skriniar.
The Slovakian international is in the final months of his contract which is set to run out in the summer but is yet to renew his contract with the Nerazurri. Recent reports suggest that the defender is pushing for a move to join Ligue 1 giants PSG.
Despite being captain of his side on multiple occasions, the player’s camp are willing to see his contract run out and move in the summer as a free agent.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of PSG’s Coupe de France match against Pays de Cassel, and as reported by FCInterNews.it, Galtier suggested that Skriniar may be due to join the club, but he could not give a timeframe on the switch.
“Before the transfer window, I said there would be arrivals only if there were departures,” the former Lille and Nice coach claimed.”
“Pablo Sarabia left for the reasons we know. The club and (sporting director) Luis Campos are working to have an additional offensive option.”
“As for Milan Škriniar, I have read the news that has been published but I can’t tell you if he will come this winter or next summer, I can’t tell you.”
“The management are working on things. I have so many things to work on with my players and I need to be focused on what we need to improve.”
Skriniar joined Inter from Sampdoria in 2017 and has made 241 appearances for the Nerazzurri, scoring 11 goals and helping the club win the Serie A title, as well as the Coppa Italia.
Whilst he would be a free agent in the summer, PSG have been linked with a transfer this month as they seek defensive reinforcements.
