PSG target Milan Skriniar to replace Thiago Silva reports Calcio Mercato. The report further adds that Godin’s revival in the tail end of the season has sealed Skriniar’s fate. PSG are keen on signing a world-class centre back after Thiago Silva’s departure. The Brazilian left Paris for free to join Frank Lampard at Chelsea.
PSG hierarchy are well aware that they’ll miss Silva in the backline. That’s where Skriniar comes into the picture. The 25-year-old established himself as one of the best centre backs in the world. But, with Conte’s arrival came a system the Slovak absolutely failed to adapt. Thus, Skriniar has fallen down the pecking order at the San Siro.
PSG will be rivalled by Tottenham who seek to replace Jan Vertonghen reports Caught Off Side. Inter and Tottenham have been in talks for a swap involving Skriniar and Ndombele. Both players have been out of form in the last season. Ndombele also has a damaged relationship with Jose Mourinho as the 23-year-old has failed to impress at Tottenham.
Does Inter even want to sell PSG target Milan Skriniar?
There have been reports that Inter are not willing to sell Skriniar. Corriere dello Sport reported that the Nerazzurri will give the Slovak international another season to adapt and improve. The same report states that the club intends on offloading Diego Godin instead. Godin earns around €5.5M in wages, €2.5M more than Skriniar. Inter might prefer to give a sigh of relief to their wage budget and Milan Skriniar.
According to Caught Off Side, Inter won’t get the €70M they want out of Skriniar. So even if Conte and the Inter management change their mind about the defender they won’t get the maximum price. PSG and Tottenham are after the world-class defender in the first place because his poor form makes him cheaper. There’s a very high probability of PSG target Milan Skriniar staying at the San Siro.
