Chelsea sets to rival PSG for Internazionale centre-back Milan Skriniar

Chelsea FC are set to rival Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) as they aim to sign Internazionale centre-back Milan Skriniar, as has been reported by Sky Italia.

Relations between the Blues and Nerazzurri are said to be positive after dealings regarding €115 million striker Romelu Lukaku — who is set to re-join Inter on loan this summer.

PSG have offered €60m for Slovakia international Skriniar so far, but that sum is deemed too low by Inter.

Chelsea are aiming to bring in defensive reinforcements having already lost Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen to Real Madrid and Barcelona, respectively. But with interest in Juventus centre-back Matthijs de Ligt, it seems they are continuing to look towards Serie A to strengthen their backline.

This comes after Inter’s negotiations with PSG had begun to come to a standstill due to the difference in their valuations of the 27-year-old, while the Ligue 1 champions had also wanted to include a player in the deal. The fact that there is interest from elsewhere is an advantage for Inter, as it could lead to PSG raising their own offer.

Inter are open to letting Skriniar leave as they feel doing so is the best way to secure their financial stability, which will be encouraging for both Chelsea and PSG.

However, Skriniar has played down rumours of a possible transfer to Spanish giants Barcelona or any other club, following an impressive start to the season with the Nerazzurri.

Despite interest from several high calibre sides, Skriniar insists he is happy at Inter, and wants to continue to help them climb further up the table.

“I’m an Inter player, and I do not talk about transfers,” he added. “Barça is always Barça, but I do not say anything. I’m at Inter and I’m very happy,” Skriniar was quoted by 90 minutes.com report.
