Chelsea Set Eyes On Milan Skriniar As Kounde Deal Slips Through

 As long as PSG won't pay the €70 million asking price, there are persistent rumors that Chelsea may turn to Inter defender Milan Skriniar after losing Jules Koundé to Barcelona.

As one of the top contenders who might be sold to raise money at San Siro, the center-back continues to be at the center of this summer's transfer rumors.

Although Paris Saint-Germain and he had advanced negotiations and even agreed on personal conditions, the club was never able to come close to Inter's €70 million asking price.

Chelsea, who are in need of a defender after witnessing Barcelona steal Sevilla star Koundé from under their noses, could now compete with the Ligue 1 team for their services.

According to reports in Spain, Chelsea reportedly made a better offer to the player, but he held out for the Blaugrana instead of responding.

It's not exactly a fresh direction for Chelsea; they had already inquired about Skriniar during the talks for Romelu Lukaku's return to Inter.

Additionally, it follows reports that Skriniar would ask for a raise on the previously approved contract extension due to interest from PSG, Tottenham Hotspur, and other teams.
