Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) formalized on Thursday the recruitment of Slovak central defender Milan Škriniar, who arrived free after six seasons at Inter Milan.
A press release from PSG therefore indicated “I am delighted to announce the signing of Milan Škriniar for the next five seasons. The Slovak defender agrees with the club until June 30, 2028”.
Quoted in the press release, the Slovak, for his part, expressed all his joy “to be part of this wonderful club”. “PSG is one of the strongest clubs in the world with world-class players and fantastic fans,” he said.
Škriniar thus arrives at the Parisian club the day after the formalization of the arrival of the Spaniard Luis Enrique as coach.
Trained at FK Žiar nad Hronom, the club of his hometown in Slovakia, Škriniar began his professional career at MŠK Žilina in 2011. The following year, he offered himself a double Cup-Championship, before being loaned to Zlaté Moravce in 2013 to harden up.
It was in January 2016 that the Slovak defender discovered Italy. Sampdoria signed him and he played 38 games for his club, becoming the youngest defender to play at least 35 Serie A games.
In 2017, Škriniar was voted the league’s best defender, continuing his rise. Recruited by Inter Milan, he made 246 appearances for the Nerazzurri in five seasons (10 goals). Under the colors of Inter, he won the Italian championship in 2021, the Italian cup in 2022 and 2023, as well as the Italian Supercup in 2021 and 2022, thus enriching his record.
Called up to the Slovakian national team for the first time in May 2016, a few weeks before playing the Euros, Milan Škriniar, 28, has 60 caps with his country.
