Milan Skriniar: Paris Saint-Germain has signed the defender on a free transfer from Inter. The transaction was concluded in January and is now public.
Milan Skriniar, a Slovakian international defender, has been presented as Paris Saint-Germain’s first official acquisition of the summer.
The 28-year-old’s arrival was practically sealed some months ago – and confirmed by the player himself – as the Ligue 1 champions finally succeeded in signing him by waiting until his contract with the Nerazzurri expired this week. Last summer, their attempt to recruit the defender was thwarted by Inter’s €80 million asking price, which PSG thought excessive.
Skriniar‘s season was disrupted in the second half by a back ailment, for which he underwent surgery in Mérignac, near Bordeaux, in April.
After six seasons at the club, which includes a Serie A title triumph in 2020/21, the centre-back has gone on to Ligue 1. He joins the Parisians on a five-year contract after Sergio Ramos left on a free transfer, and he is anticipated to be joined by a slew of other new players soon after Luis Enrique is introduced as the team’s new head coach.
