Inter defender Milan Škriniar was close to joining Paris Saint-Germain in the last summer transfer window. But with president Steven Zhang blocking the transfer, the Slovak international stayed put at the Italian club.
As reported by Fabrizio Romano, Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta confirmed that they would like to offer Škriniar a new contract. He said:
“Milan Škriniar is a top player and professional. If he has the same ideas as us, there will be a contract extension. He deserves to be our captain.”
Škriniar has a contract with the Nerazzurri until June 2023, meaning that he will be free to sign a pre-contract with his next club as soon as this upcoming January transfer window. PSG have reportedly been keeping tabs on his situation at Inter for some time now.
There have been reports of the reigning Ligue 1 champions intending to offer the player huge wages in an attempt to lure the centre-back away from Italy in January. Nevertheless, if a deal is not found there, Inter seem ready to keep hold of the former Sampdoria man.
