Fabrizio Romano has issued an interesting update on the race to sign Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar via Caught Offside.

Romano reports: “the most interested in Milan Skriniar remains….Paris Saint-Germain”. He goes on to mention that Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have yet to make an approach for the Slovak, while Chelsea were focused solely on picking up Wesley Fofana.

Paris Saint-Germain Interested in Milan Skriniar

High-Level Defender

The Serie A winner has established his spot at the heart of the defence at the San Siro since joining in 2017. The 27-year-old has been dubbed a “complete defender” who revived praise for his transition to playing in a back-three under Antonio Conte. His excellent displays in Italy have seen him named Slovak Footballer of the Year for three years running.

The defender has currently racked up 224 appearances for Inter Milan, winning the Serie A, Coppa Italia, and Supercoppa Italia in that time.

Overlooked

Interestingly, Romano’s report indicates that Skriniar’s talent hasn’t attracted sufficient attention from England’s top clubs. With centre-backs always in high demand, it seems foolish to let a player of this quality slip through the cracks. With the wealthy Parisian club circling, it may be too little too late for other teams.

What’s even more confusing about the lack of interest in the 27-year-old is that he could be available for free next summer. The Caught Offside report outlines that his current contract expires in 2023 which means he can agree to a free transfer from January onwards.

We are currently in the era of the free transfer and it’s no doubt that many top clubs will duke it out for his signature come January but all signs currently point to Paris Saint-Germain fending off the competition.
