Skriniar’s manager insists PSG-linked defender is unlikely to stay at Inter

According to Inter’s manager Roberto Sistici, there is no “possibility” for Inter to renew Milan Skriniar’s contract after its expiration date in June.

Skriniar was strongly linked to his move to Paris Saint-Germain last year, but no move took place and the centre-back began renegotiating with Inter for a new deal.

However, his manager confirmed on Monday that Inter’s offer was rejected in December and has since made it clear that they are in talks with the club with other teams.

Skriniar, who lost 1-0 to Empoli on Monday, is expected to eventually sign with PSG, but Sistici declined to name the clubs he has spoken to.

“The truth is that the decision to put Milan Skriniar on the transfer market in the summer was made by Inter, not the player,” Sistici told TeleNord.

“It was a choice of the club that led to a negotiation between Inter and PSG and we were clearly aware of it. At a certain point the negotiation broke down and we were also informed about this step. It is not up to us and the player accepted this calmly with professionalism and absolute respect for the contract.

“We responded to all requests for talks by the club last fall. After a series of preliminary discussions, we submitted our financial request, and then at the beginning of November 2022, the club presented us with an offer.

“About a month later, before Christmas, I conveyed to Inter my decision not to accept their offer, at the beginning of January, it was a recurring election before the Supercoppa and I also informed the managers. [Giuseppe] Marotta and [Piero] Ausilio, we thought we were free to listen to offers from other clubs.

“Maybe it wasn’t mandatory communication, but it was the right way for the player and me, because we knew that seriousness and transparency was the best way for us. I repeat, we never missed an appointment with Inter.”

“We didn’t talk about PSG, just as we didn’t leak the positions of us and Inter, we agreed with Inter to handle the matter with calm and the right secrecy for the performance of the team and the player.

“There are contacts with some clubs. It’s not Italian. [clubs]”

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi responded after the shock loss, saying the club was “trying to sort out” the situation with Skriniar, without revealing whether he meant to sell the player or offer a new contract.

At a similar time, PSG coach Christophe Galtier was also asked about Skriniar after the Parisians’ Pays de Cassel won 7-0 in the Coupe de France.

He didn’t offer much clarity, though he admitted he was convinced PSG had done enough to sign him last year.

“I can’t say whether it will come this winter. [January]Or this summer,” he told beIN SPORTS, “he’s a player we’ve been following for a long time.

“We actually thought we caught him last summer.”
