Paris Saint-Germain will be regretting the decision not to push to sign defender Milan Skriniar from Inter during the January transfer window
Season seems to be over for Kimpembe => karma is realThis is the view of Italian news outlet Gazzetta.it, who note that the Parisians are starting to look thin in terms of defensive depth following the season-ending injury to defender Presnel Kimpembe.
Skriniar is set to join PSG during the summer transfer window when his contract with Inter expires, but the Parisians could likely have signed the Slovakian even before then if they had made the right offer to Inter in the January window.
The decision of the French champions was that they would rather wait until the summer when the former Sampdoria defender was available on a free transfer rather than offering too high of a fee for a player who only had a few months left remaining on his contract.
The basis for this decision was that PSG felt that with the defenders they already had in their squad, there would be more than enough for them to see out the rest of the current season.
However, given that Kimpembe is now injured, the strategy of declining to sign Skriniar for a fee is likely one that the Parisians are feeling some regret about.
