Inter have not managed to open talks for Milan Škriniar’s contract renewal, with Paris Saint-Germain showing interest in restarting the pursuit of the Slovak defender.
According to what is reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, it is not over between PSG and Milan Škriniar. Inter’s intention to bind the centre-back to a new contract has now hit a stalemate. It was previously understood that the international break would be a perfect time to open talks over a potential extension.
But with the break now coming to an end, none of the involved parties has begun the proceedings. Instead, there has been a postponement, which has not pleased the managers at the Italian club. On top of that, PSG have continued to monitor the situation.
Škriniar’s contract at Inter expires in June 2023, meaning that he will be able to leave the Italian giants for free in the next summer transfer window. Inter can not reportedly guarantee that the player will be at the club by the end of the upcoming January transfer window. Considering that he has just a few months left in his current contract at Inter, PSG will not understandably spend more than €30 million on Škriniar.
Inter have thought about offering a short-term renewal to Škriniar with the inclusion of a release clause in an attempt to fend off the interest from PSG and others until June 2023. It is unlikely that Inter will lose the defender for free. Hence, the possibility of his departure in the winter transfer window remains wide open.
