Milan Skriniar, a defender for Inter Milan, has signed a five-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain, the club announced on Thursday.

"Paris Saint-Germain is delighted to announce that Milan Skriniar has signed a five-year contract with the club," the club stated in a statement. The Slovak defender's contract expires on June 30, 2028."

After rising through the ranks at his native club, FK Ziar nad Hronom, the imposing 6'4" center-back began his professional career at MSK Zilina in 2011. The next year, he won the league and cup double before going on loan to FC Vion Zlate Moravce in 2013.

The Slovak international then went to Italy in 2016, joining UC Sampdoria, where he made 36 appearances, becoming the youngest defender to play at least 35 games in Serie A.

Skriniar's value rose after he was crowned the league's top defender in 2017. He signed with Inter Milan and played in 246 games for the Nerazzurri over the course of five seasons, scoring ten goals and helping the Nerazzurri win the Serie A title in 2020–21, the Coppa Italia in 2021–22 and 2022–23, and the Supercoppa Italiana in both 2021 and 2022.

Skriniar was called up to the Slovakia national team for the first time in 2016, only a few weeks before competing in that year's European Championship in France, and at the age of 28, he has already been capped 60 times for his country.

"I am overjoyed to be a part of this fantastic Club," Milan Skriniar remarked. PSG is one of the top clubs in the world, having talented players and amazing supporters.
