Inter Milan defender Milan Skrinjar will not renew his contract with the Italian giants and will walk away free of charge this summer unless a deal is struck this month. The 27-year-old has been with Inter since 2017 and was close to making a move. Paris Saint-Germain even signed an agreement with the French champions last summer.

Skrinjar’s agent has now confirmed that their client does not intend to extend his stay at the Nerazzurri and will discuss terms with the clubs concerned, including PSG: “Yes (negotiations are ongoing) as well as with other non-Italian clubs.” Roberto Sistici told Telenord. “At the moment there is no such possibility (to renew the contract with Inter). The fact is that the decision to sell Milan was made by Inter last summer. Obviously not a player.

“We have responded to all requests for meetings that the club has made. After a series of preliminary meetings, we presented our financial request and then in November 2022 the club made us an offer. About a month later, before Christmas, I contacted Inter. decision not to accept their offer.

“This decision was confirmed in early January ahead of the Super Bowl final. At this point, I also informed the directors of the Nerazzurri, whom we said that we could listen to proposals from other clubs. We have already informed Inter that Milan is not renewing his contract, how things are. We told them that we are not shy about talking to other clubs.”

This situation creates an interesting dynamic given that Inter will lose Skrinjar for nothing if he stays until the summer, the defender wants to leave and PSG remain interested in the player due to their own defensive needs. Prenel Kimpembe still wounded, captain marquinhosform has suffered lately, and the veteran Sergio Ramos looked unconvincing.

Skrinjar, who mainly plays on the right flank of Inter’s back three, as shown in his defensive action map below, will either allow PSG to return to the back three they played with at the start of the season or adjust to the role of centre-back. couple in Paris.

PSG head coach Christophe Galtier admitted on Monday that Skrinjar was of interest and that Les Parisiens expected him to join last summer: “I can’t tell you if he will join in January or summer,” the PSG boss said after 7th match. 0 Coupe de France beat Pays de Cassel. “This is a player we have been following for a long time. We thought he was close to joining us last summer.”

Now that Skrinjar has some clarity on his future, it seems clear to all parties as the situation could still give everyone a decision in the final week of the transfer window. For Inter, this is the last chance to capitalize on a player who will not be left after the summer. For PSG, this is a chance to acquire a quality defender for less than last year.

Skrinjar himself was happy to sign last summer, but the two clubs could not agree. If he joins now, he will almost certainly play a starting role for the rest of this season and could very well oust Kimpembe for good, who may have left last year as well. Ramos’ contract extension could free up Skrinjar’s wages as well as money created Pablo Sarabia output.

While a boost in attack would be helpful, it’s undeniable that PSG’s most pressing concern is their defense. The chances of adding truly quality players to the squad in January are rare and Skrinjar could play a big role, especially in the UEFA Champions League where he won’t draw despite Inter still in the running.

If this move happens it could be the best decision for both PSG and Inter as one needs a player and the other needs money. Of course, it will be difficult for the Italian giants to immediately replace Skrinjar with a player of similar caliber, but their financial situation dictates that they cannot afford not to make a deal now. The French champions could turn the tide of their season, which began to falter after the return of club action following the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
