Milan Škriniar, the renowned defender from Inter Milan, has confirmed his transfer to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). The move is set to take place in July, following a pre-contract signed in January.
Škriniar’s contract with Inter Milan was due to expire on June 30th, and the player has now confirmed his move to PSG. The French club had been working on the transfer of the 28-year-old since the winter. However, they were unable to reach an agreement with Inter Milan, who demanded a high sum for a player with a contract of only a few months left. PSG had offered 15 million euros, while the Serie A representative wanted the transfer to close at a sum five million higher. Ultimately, the defender is leaving as a free agent.

Škriniar will join on four year deal — it will be valid until June 2027.
The player himself confirmed the move during the Slovakian national team’s training camp. “Next year I will play at PSG. The important thing is that I am well. I had a significant injury and tried to make up for lost time by training even when the team was resting. Now I feel good,” Škriniar stated in a press conference with Slovakia.
Škriniar will be replacing Sergio Ramos at Parc des Princes. During his time with Inter Milan, Škriniar played 246 matches, marking his presence with 11 goals and five assists. He won Serie A, two Italian Cups, and two Italian Super Cups with the club.
