Sportmediaset (via Football-Italy) reports that Skriniar will become the highest-paid player at Inter by signing a new contract at the San Siro.
The Slovak defender has been heavily linked with PSG throughout the summer but a move that has not worked out.
He has reacted to reports suggesting that he is set to extend his stay with the Serie A side, saying (via Fabrizio Romano)
“I never talk about my contract here in public. That’s not the right place to discuss it. When there are updates, you will know from me and no one else. “
Skriniar joined Inter from Sampdoria in 2017 for £30.6m and has been a mainstay in the I Nerazzurri side ever since.
The centre-back has made 222 appearances and won the Serie A title in 2021.
His performances have seen him regarded as one of European football’s finest defenders for many years.
PSG think they’ve got their man this summer as they have been chasing the Slovakian for a long time but have not been able to successfully lure him to the Parc des Princes.
Christophe Galtier commented on the defender’s unsuccessful pursuit, speech:
“We suffered a lot of departures, on loan. Of course, Milan Skriniar is a player we have identified. We thought we were close to an agreement at one point, but the price both have increased over time.”
“I can understand our president, because paying such a transfer fee for a player at the end of a year’s contract is huge. I am in constant communication with my president and Luis Campos. .”
Skriniar has one year left on his current contract with Inter, so the Serie A side are pushing for a contract extension.
PSG in red form despite not signing Skriniar
PSG are beating the easy teams in Ligue 1 when they only conceded 4 goals in the first 7 matches.
They won all but one of those matches with a trio of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Lionel Messi flourishing.
Galtier has made cuts and changes at the back, with Danilo Pereira perhaps surprisingly given a regular role.
Meanwhile, the likes of Sergio Ramos, Presnel Kimpembe and Marquinhos are proving themselves to be formidable full-backs for the Ligue 1 champions.
