PSG made their first official summer signing with the unveiling of Slovakian defender Milan Skriniar this morning.
The arrival of the 28-year-old player was effectively finalized several months ago, and it was acknowledged by the player himself. The Ligue 1 champions finally succeeded in their attempts to sign him by waiting until the expiration of his contract with Inter this past week. The player’s contract with the Nerazzurri was set to expire this past week. Their attempt to acquire the defender during the previous summer was thwarted as a result of Inter’s asking price of €80 million, which PSG regarded as being excessively high.
A back injury that Skriniar suffered during the second half of the season forced him to undergo surgery.
The center-back left the club after six seasons and 246 appearances, which included a championship run in Serie A in the 2020/21 season. He is now going to play in the French first division. In the wake of Sergio Ramos’ departure from PSG on a free transfer, he will be joining the Parisians on a five-year deal. He is expected to be joined by several other new signings not long after Luis Enrique is introduced as the team’s new head coach. Luis Enrique will be introduced later today.
