Announced as one of PSG’s top priorities during the summer transfer window, Milan Skriniar was finally retained by Inter Milan, who rejected all offers made by Luis Campos. But the sports adviser will return in January to the charge for the Slovak central defender.

And the Portuguese leader has also broken his teeth on a file: Milano Skriniar.

But the club nerazzurro claimed too large an amount, forcing the PSG to draw a line under this case.

But we will do with the available squad (…) It was important to have this additional defender. Unfortunately, we couldn’t take it “said the coach of the PSG.

PSG will return to the charge
