Fabrizio Romano: PSG ahead of Tottenham Hotspur in Milan Skriniar transfer race

According to Fabrizio Romano in his exclusive CaughtOffside column, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are leading Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, and Manchester City in the race to sign Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar.

The Slovakia international saw interest from multiple English clubs this summer. However, according to the Italian transfer expert, neither Spurs nor City made an approach for him. He wrote:

“There’s a lot of talk at the moment of English clubs, but my understanding is that the most interested in Milan Skriniar remains … Paris Saint-Germain. Manchester City and Spurs have not made any proposal or approach, while Chelsea were focused on signing Wesley Fofana this summer.”

Currently, I Nerazzurri are understandably in negotiations to renew the 27-year-old’s contract at the club. His current deal expires in the summer of 2023, which could make this a very tense situation for Inter.

Their financial problems in the past are no secret. Losing a player like Skriniar, at the peak of his game, on a free transfer would be a financial nightmare for them.

Spurs would be wise to follow those negotiations closely. Chelsea, PSG and City are heavy hitters and their power in the transfer market is there for all to see.

Hence, Tottenham have serious competition for the former Sampdoria defender. It remains to be seen just how serious the Lilywhites are themselves – if they retain an interest in the centre-back.

Spurs did sign a central defender this summer, but it was on a loan deal. Clement Lenglet, as it stands, is set to return to Barcelona in the summer of 2023. Alessandro Bastoni was another defender from Antonio Conte’s ex-club that Spurs were interested in this summer.
