Representatives from Inter Milan are reportedly in London to negotiate a deal for the transfer of Paris Saint-Germain target Milan Skriniar, who has also drawn interest from Chelsea. The Slovak’s contract with the Nerazzurri expires next year. The Serie A club is reportedly looking to sell the Slovak international to balance their books, and the French capital could potentially provide a new home for the player.
Chelsea has been keen on recruiting Skriniar for some time now. However, the Blues face stiff competition from PSG for Slovak’s services. With Nordi Mukiele already lost to the Ligue 1 giants, Thomas Tuchel and his team will be hoping for a more positive outcome this time.
Kalidou Koulibaly has been the only new face in defence so far this transfer window. The 31-year-old joined the club from Napoli with a reputation as one of the world’s best defenders, and over the last two seasons, he has lived up to that reputation. However, whether the Senegalese international will thrive in the Premier League remains to be seen.
Besides, the Premier League fans who like to bet on Chelsea on platforms like slot-e-wallet are cheering for this move as it will give their team a competitive edge in the next season. Currently, Chelsea has two other options: Trevoh Chalobah and Malang Sarr. Despite their inexperience, both youngsters played a considerable role last season. However, fans feel more quality is needed for the upcoming campaign if they are to challenge for titles.
Nonetheless, it is unlikely that PSG will want to miss out on one of their own targets, either. The Parisians will be keen to continue to add to their side this summer as they look to continue to dominate Ligue 1 with Christophe Galtier now in charge following the decision to let Mauricio Pochettino to leave the club.
Indeed, the new boss has already started life in the perfect way for the club, as they managed to record an emphatic 4-0 victory over FC Nantes in the Trophee des Champions on Sunday.
Lionel Messi got the scoring started when he found the back of the net in the first half, before Neymar got his first of the game just moments before the halftime whistle.
PSG then added a third before the hour when Sergio Ramos netted, before Neymar added his second of the game from the penalty spot with just eight minutes of the match left to play.
