This is coming after Skriniar already confirmed an agreement with the Ligue 1 giants.
But the issue is getting a valuable replacement for him. He would therefore join the Ligue 1 club on a free transfer at the end of his contract with Inter in June.
Having been trying to agree on a transfer fee with Inter for the January window, Sportitalia reported that they would have got their target on a potential €15m transfer.
In terms of replacement Inter tried to get Demiral from Atalanta, but La Dea wants an initial loan deal with an obligation to buy for €25m, which is too much for the Nerazzurri. So, this leaves the deal on hold.
This is a loss for the Serie A giants that had refused to sell Skriniar for less than €70m last summer despite knowing that they would not be able to match PSG’s contract offer for their defender.
In another development, Hamed Traore will join English Premier League side Bournemouth.
Sassuolo director Giovanni Carnevali confirmed this after several days of negotiations.
Since Traore is heading to England for €30m, it means Davide Frattesi will be more expensive over the summer.
The Neroverdi had to sell the winger as his current deal expired in 2024.
Since there’s no sign that he will extend his present deal with the club, the Serie A side had to cash out on him.
Meanwhile, the Neroverdi will keep Frattesi until summer despite Roma’s long-time interest. He had been touted to replace Nicolo Zaniolo, who later turned down a move to Bournemouth.
The current transfer window in the Italian Serie A will close at 11 pm, and many late deals could still hold as it’s expected that paperwork will be done afterward.
