Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi would not be prepared to accept the sale of defender Milan Skriniar at this point in the summer transfer window.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the coach would be furious if he lost the 27-year-old this close to the start of the season and with the possible replacements dwindling.

Inzaghi considers Skriniar a vital player at the back after the Slovakian’s displays last season, and the team’s poor form on the defensive side of the game in preseason suggests that the coach will need every resource he can get to solidify the team.

With the start of the Serie A season now less than a week away, Inzaghi feels that there is no way that the team can lose a player as important as Skriniar no matter the offer, or else risk having their preparations for the campaign torn to shreds.

The coach would have been ready to see Skriniar sold for a big fee if the replacement had arrived in the form of Bremer or even Nikola Milenkovic and he had had time to work with the new arrival and integrate them into the defensive system.

However, at this point he would consider the loss of Skriniar to be intolerable, even though he is well aware that the transfer saga is not over if Paris Saint-Germain decide to return with a massive offer to test the club’s resolve.

It remains to be seen how Inter owners Suning would respond to another big push by PSG for Skriniar, but as far as the coach is concerned a sale of the Slovakian cannot happen.
