    Skrinjar’s agent insists PSG-linked defender can’t stay at Inter

    Inter have “no option” to renew Milan Skrinjar’s contract after it expires in June, according to defender’s agent Roberto Sistici.

    Skrinjar was closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain last year, but no move has taken place and the centre-back has begun renegotiating a new contract with Inter.

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

    Skrinjar, who was sent off after a 1-0 loss to Empoli on Monday, is expected to eventually move to PSG, though Sistici declined to name the clubs he speaks to.

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

    “It was the choice of the club that led to the negotiations between Inter and PSG, which we obviously were informed about. At some point, negotiations broke down and we were also informed of this step, a decision that was beyond our control and that the player took calmly, with professionalism and absolute respect for the contract.

    “Last fall, we responded to all the club’s requests for meetings. After a series of preliminary meetings, we submitted our financial request and subsequently, at the beginning of November 2022, the club submitted an offer to us.

    “About a month later, before Christmas, I informed Inter of the decision not to accept their offer, and this choice was repeated in early January, before the Super Bowl, when I also informed the managers. [Giuseppe] Marotta and [Piero] Ausilio that we thought we could freely listen to offers from other clubs.

    “It may not have been a mandatory communication, but for me and the player it was the right way to go, knowing that seriousness and transparency is the best way for us to act. I repeat, we have never missed a single meeting with Inter.

    He added: “We have not spoken about PSG, nor have we disclosed our position and that of Inter, given that we have agreed with Inter to resolve this matter with due confidentiality, in the interests of peace and effectiveness of the game. team and player.

    “There are contacts with some clubs. Not Italian [clubs]”.

    Inter coach Simone Inzaghi responded after the shock defeat by saying the club was “trying to resolve” the situation with Skrinjar, without specifying whether he meant selling the player or offering a new contract.

    At the same time, PSG coach Christophe Galtier was also asked about Skriniar after the Parisians’ 7-0 win at the Coupe de France against the Pays de Cassel.

    He also offered no clarity, although he admitted that PSG were convinced last year that they had done enough to sign him.

    “I can’t tell if he’ll come this winter [January]or this summer,” he told beIN SPORTS. “This is a player we have been following for a long time.

    “Actually, we thought we already got it last summer.”
