“I cannot tell you whether it will come this winter or next summer.”

No announcement came, as some had boldly tried to speculate. But neither did a denial, by the way classic in situations of this kind. Christophe Galtier, the PSG coach, did not back down at a press conference in answering questions about the possible arrival in Paris of Milan Skriniar, the Nerazzurri defender whose contract expires next June 30.

“Before the market I had said that there would be arrivals only in case of disposals. As for Milan Skriniar, I have seen the rumors that have come out but I cannot tell you whether he will arrive this winter or next summer, I cannot confirm that. However, the management is working,” he said.

In any case, with the peace of mind of Inter fans, one thing seems certain: the former Sampdoria player will most likely not renew his contract with the Beneamata. It remains to be seen whether the Skriniar-PSG deal will be finalized as early as January, allowing Marotta to collect ‘compensation,’ or whether the Slovakian will leave on a zero-parameter basis in July, though honoring his on-field commitments with the Nerazzurri until the end of the current season.
