PSG to go for Skriniar in January again

PSG

PSG are having a great season so far under new coach Galtier. They have built a mammoth squad this time. The pair of Campos and Galtier has worked really well so far at the club. They have strengthened the squad in a lot of positions. Nordi Mukiele has come in as a backup CB/RB. PSG are really taking this season into full concentration as they have bolstered the midfield quite a bit. Carlos Soler, Vitinha, Fabian Ruiz, and Renato Sanches are the new faces in the Parisians 2 man midfield. They usually operate with a 3-4-3 formation with Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe leading the line.

With the transfer market now shut, they are still looking to make big moves in the market in January. As per reports, PSG wants a new CB as they feel there are only 3 quality ones in the current squad. Marquinhos, Ramos, and Kimpembe are the only ones the coach trusts at this moment. Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar is the one who Galtier wants at the club. The coach is a big admirer of the Slovenian CB and feels that he can really strengthen their defense and make them UCL favorites. Skriniar is in his prime and if a move to PSG happens, he can be the leader of the defense with Marquinhos and Ramos.

However, a move for Skriniar is not so easy to make. Galtier feels positive in getting Skriniar this season. He is adamant to get him here next season because of the quality he can bring. Inter Milan were not at any moment considering selling him with the squad so thin. Luis Campos has also confirmed that the transfers are not yet done for Paris Saint Germain. They are disappointed over not getting Skriniar and also about the departures. Most of the departures were loan deals which means players will be back next season and a big hassle will be there. But getting Skriniar is a top priority with Sergio Ramos aging.

Can PSG finally get European Glory?

PSG have had a master Transfer window. This year, the situation feels different as they have not spent big money on one particular player. Rather than that, they have invested their money this year in a lot of players to improve the squad depth. They have also worked on departures to remove the unwanted players and it finally feels that they are getting managed rightly. Earlier, they made only big money moves that would not pay off.

But they have stiff competition this season from the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, and Real Madrid. It will not be an easy mountain to climb for PSG but they seem like a team that can do it. Neymar, Messi, and Mbappe look in red hot form, and defenses are struggling to contain the trio. With no European glory as yet, PSG are desperately looking to make a mark in Europe this time.
