PSG sign Milan Skriniar on a free transfer

Milan Skriniar has completed a free transfer to Paris Saint Germain becoming their first signing of the summer.

Milan Skriniar has signed a new five-year deal with the Parisien club, following the expiration of his Internazionale contract in June. His move follows the appointment of Luis Enrique as head coach and the termination of previous coach, Christophe Galtier.

The defender joined Inter from Sampdoria in 2017 and has made nearly 250 appearances during his time at the club with over 60 caps for Slovakia.

The 28-year-old was linked with a move to PSG in January but negotiations between the two clubs could not reach an agreement before the transfer window closed. The centre-back’s final season in Italy was interrupted by injuries as he missed more than 20 games in all competitions, including the Champions League final where Inter lost to Manchester City.

“I am delighted to become a part of this wonderful club,” Skriniar said in a statement.

“There’s always pressure when you join a club like Paris Saint-Germain. I feel it a bit, but I feel I’m ready, ready to be part of this really big club. But I love pressure. I’m a defender, so we know what it’s all about.”

Milan Skriniar’s defensive abilities will be a valuable addition to PSG’s defence, which conceded 40 goals on their way to securing their 11th Ligue 1 title last season marking the worst defensive record for a French champion since Lyon conceded 41 goals in 2003.

During his six-year tenure at Inter Milan, Skriniar won the Serie A title, two Italian Cups, and two Italian Super Cups during his time there.
