Skriniar was about the get sold a year before. When Lukaku came on pure loan. The idea was to get Bremer for his replacement, hit huge capital gain, and have some cash remained. There was zero creditable rumors saying that we wanted to sell Skriniar in order to purchase Lukaku back.
This is another chapter of Brehme's fabricated stories, with a source of his mysterious insiders. Which are most probably his rich imagination.

Not really what happened. You're mixing up the conclusion with the actual events flow.

Skriniar to enable Bremer became a thing only after Lukaku was here. For a brief moment that was also tied with Dybala arriving on top of Lukaku, only to have Correa leaving as a new condition.
This is all in the space of two weeks...
We tried to sell Skriniar through all over June and then tried to sell Bastoni as well! All that was to get Lukaku's big fat contract in, not to sign a replacement. The replacement was going to be an aftermath, not the cause. Because obviously we'd have to get a defender if we sold a starter..

Bremer price skyrocketed after and Skriniar had already rejected leaving for PSG.

We then tried to sell him again after Bremer had signed for Juventus..

I don't agree. There were rumors (plenty), that we had an agreement with Bremer, and an agreement in principal with Torino for the fee, even before the mercato got started. It was typical move of Marotta, trying to seal a replacement before the sale happens. Just like he tried to do this summer with Vicario, Frattesi and Augusto. I don't recall even a single rumor stating that we want to get Lukaku on permanent basis, funded by Skriniar's sale. If there is a such, please be so kind to share a link to it.

A price of Bremer was agreed in January. There was no connection with Skriniar, but with a potential De Vrij sale.
In that summer Torino got greedy and kept adding 5m to the value because we were lowballing them and Juventus showed intent to pay premium.

That price rose by 70% by the time he was transferred.

Lukaku cost us 20m last season, we still needed to fund that somehow. We got lucky Inzaghi took us to the CL final...

There's no way your 60 year old self is staying up until 5 a.m., unless you wake up at 4 a.m.

Double standard. When Management had tried to sell Icardi that was ok and after all everything was Icardi's fault but in Skriniar scenario it's management's fault :lol:

I don't want to argue about none of them. I think in both scenarios, the management should be blamed at the most.

I think its Icardis fault that he got himself in a position that the management wanted to sell him but in Skriniars case its the management fault for letting him go for free.

Also he has the right to make the best decisions for himself yes PSG is fck club but if he chose to play there no one can blame him ffs

Do you guys actually hate a player this much or just keeping a persona on the internet? I mean if you see Skriniar on the streets, do you make a bull sound and head march toward him to save mankind from this 'evil' guy?
there are more retards on the street right now rather than Skriniar. Let him be.

Find me one statement from any player ever after he signed for a club where he says it took him a really long time to make up his mind if he really wanted to come there :lol:

I get the point, and I agree re Skriniar, but as soon as I finished reading this I remembered Nainggolan :lol: Now, I can't remember what he said when he signed for Inter, but my strong feeling was "Fuck everything, I don't wanna be here"

Perhaps we may have dodged a bullet not giving Skriniar a fat contract. He looks absolutely toast and I don't think it has anything to do with the fact that he's at a new club. Clumsy, slow, second to the ball.. what happened? I feel like his mentality and character, which seemed like some of his best qualities a little while ago, are starting to become a bit of an issue.

Definitely has to do with "new club" issue, especially in a terrible environment like PSG. Well, he's gotten that cash but footballing wise, he downgraded.

There's so many issues in their group. Skriniar has made several individual errors so far, but when things aren't working collectively, you'd expect individual collapse one by one. It doesn't work, simple as that. This is like creating a narrative that Casemiro is a poor player because things aren't going as good as they were in Real Madrid days.

I've lost my respect for Skriniar because of his behaviour towards the club, which I still think our management were clowns for not taking a better care of situation, but by no means I don't hate Skriniar. I refuse to believe he's mentally weak or whatever comes up regarding his situation now. The guy was solid as rock for many years, especially whenever the rest of the team looked lost, he was still there bossing against anyone. He shot himself in the foot by moving to PSG though.

Was ass yesterday other than the goal, and that's twice in this CL group that he's let someone (Dan Burn first then Giroud) absolutely overwhelm him on a headed challenge leading to PSG conceding.

Looks a long way from the 1st season Spalletti/2nd season Conte Skriniar we know, but it is mainly an environment issue. Hakimi looked awful too.
