Inter Milan expect the French league champions, Paris Saint-Germain to finalise Slovak Milan Skriniar’s deal soon as they look to finance pending targets’ deals identified as possible replacements for the defender.
Reportedly, Nerazzurri turned down PSG’s initial offer for the player who they value at €80m but are positive Les Parisians will come back with an improved bid.
According to Sempreinter, Inter have pencilled Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic and Torino’s Bremer as replacements for the Slovak who was a stud in the defence of Nerazzurri last season to emerge as one of the
most coveted defenders in Europe. The Trumpet Gathered
The report explained that though PSG’s first offer was turned down by the Italians, there is a possibility that Inter will sell the player at €70m with add-ons that will approximately rise to €80m.
Italy want a big-money move for the defender and will not settle for less while Parc des Princes, determined to build their defensive lineup, are eager a snap up the Slovak to France.
Speculatively, Inter believe the deal will be finalised in a week before clubs’ pre-season tours due to kickstart next month.
If PSG conclude the deal, Chelsea and Tottenham also on the list of clubs bidding for the defender would have been surpassed.
Meanwhile, Inter legend Ivan Cordoba believes Brazilian Bremer would not be able to cover the defensive strides attained by Skriniar.
According to report my an Italian media outlet, Cordoba claimed that Bremer is a good defender but needs time to get to the Slovak’s level.
“I think Skriniar is at the top,” he said,
“Bremer is on his way to getting there. It’s hard to make comparisons right now,” Cordoba added.
Skriniar joined Inter Milan from Sampdoria five years ago in a deal that was around €20m plus Gianluca Caprari’s swap.
