Milan Škriniar’s future at Inter is far from certain, with Paris Saint-Germain showing interest in a deal in the winter transfer window after failing to land the defender last summer.
La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Inter are unwilling to match the demands of Milan Škriniar, leading to an awkward postponement in the Nerazzurri’s intention to extend the contract of the centre-back. The renewal is now moving further away from the Slovakia international.
As things stand, the player’s current terms at the Italian club expire in June 2023. PSG tabled a mammoth offer of €50 million plus various bonuses for Škriniar in the summer transfer window. But Inter rejected it with the hope that they could reach an agreement with the player’s entourage over the renewal.
While PSG reportedly remain interested in the 27-year-old, the Ligue 1 champions could offer around €25 million-€30 million to secure the services of the Inter man in the winter transfer window.
The Nerazzurri management is understood to be against the idea of allowing the defender to leave for free next summer. Renewal appears to be difficult, considering that Inter will not be able to match the annual salary of €7.5 million that PSG are willing to spend. As per the report, Inter’s current offer for an extension stands at €6 million per season (including bonuses).
