Skriniar had been heavily linked with a sale for much of the summer transfer window, with PSG making no secret of the fact the 27-year-old was a priority target, but they never made an offer that convinced the Nerazzurri.

As a result, Inter didn’t end up signing Bremer, nor Milenkovic from Fiorentina, with the Serb having been one of the main names linked as a similar Skriniar should the Slovak be sold to PSG.
Biasin confirmed that was essentially the plan at Inter, and that the fact that no sale of Skriniar took place proved to be a decisive factor in the Nerazzurri not ending up moving for either of them. defensive targets they had been linked with during the window. .
“Skriniar is still at Inter at the end,” he noted. “The plan was Bremer plus Milenkovic to replace him, but in the end he stayed.”

“I expect to see him in the starting XI against Roma,” he added of the Albanian.
Biasin also spoke about the interest in defender Kim before he moved to Napoli, saying that “[Inter Sporting Director Piero] Ausilio was a big fan of Kim, but Inter didn’t have €20 millions.”
