PSG: Gianluigi Donnarumma and Achraf Hakimi involved in bringing Milan Skriniar to Paris?

Before reaching Paris SG, Milan Skriniar already knew where he was stepping foot. The Slovakian defender revealed this on Wednesday, December 27th, in front of PSGTV’s microphone. “I already knew some of my teammates, I had already played against 3 or 4 of them. Gigio (Donnarumma) is one of them, as well as Fabian Ruiz and Ousmane Dembélé,” explained the one who arrived from Italy this summer.

At Inter Milan since 2017, the defender had become a rock over the years, establishing himself as one of the best at his position on the European stage. In contact with PSG for two seasons, Milan Skriniar had refused to extend the past season, to leave freely in the summer of 2023.

A choice guided in part by the advice of Parisians who knew him from the other side of the Alps. “Before coming to Paris, I spoke to Gigio Donnarumma and Hakimi because I had played with him at Inter,” he admitted. So I already knew a little bit about the club because anyone who follows football knows that PSG is one of the best clubs, one of the strongest in the world. That, I already knew and I can confirm it.”

Well established this season by Luis Enrique at the heart of the Parisian defense, Milan Skriniar has played 22 matches in the Parisian colors, including the six Champions League matches, often associated with Marquinhos.

However, the Slovak seems to have difficulty regaining the confidence that made him a force at Inter Milan. And some supporters are letting themselves go to a nuanced judgment of Milan Skriniar’s performances since his arrival at PSG.

This does not prevent the Slovak international from flourishing in the capital: “I feel good in this city, my family is happy here. For now, everything is fantastic. I started taking French lessons, I already know a few basic words.”
