Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) made headlines by announcing the signings of defender Milan Skriniar (28) and striker Marco Asensio (27). These acquisitions mark the first and second signings of the summer and come shortly after the appointment of coach Luis Enrique.
Skriniar, who joins from Inter Milan, has signed a five-year contract with PSG until 2028. Expressing his excitement, Skriniar stated, “I’m very proud to be at a great club like PSG. They have top-class players and passionate fans. PSG is undeniably one of the strongest teams in the world.”
Born in Slovakia, Skriniar played a crucial role as a defender for Inter Milan for six years, scoring 11 goals in 246 league appearances. In 2021, under the management of Antonio Conte, he lifted the Serie A championship trophy. Despite strong links to Tottenham, the transfer did not materialize, leading Skriniar to join PSG as a free agent.
Standing at 188 cm tall and weighing 80 kg, Skriniar is known for his defensive prowess. In the upcoming season, he is expected to form a formidable central defensive partnership with Marquinhos and potentially Luca Hernandez, who may move from Bayern Munich to PSG.
The signing of Asensio was officially announced by PSG shortly after Skriniar’s announcement. Asensio, a versatile striker, has signed a three-year contract with PSG until 2026. Speaking about his move, Asensio expressed his happiness, stating, “I’m thrilled to join PSG. I look forward to getting to know my teammates, training with them, and meeting the fans. I believe PSG is the perfect club to fulfill my ambitions, as they have an ambitious project and are determined to win numerous titles.”
Lee Kang-in, the South Korean footballer, is also expected to join PSG soon. Reliable source Fabricio Romano, an expert in the European transfer market, revealed that Lee Kang-in’s transfer to PSG is almost finalized. Romano noted that the player has completed his medical tests and is in the final stages of signing the contract. The official announcement from PSG regarding Lee Kang-in’s recruitment is eagerly awaited.
The European media speculates that Lee Kang-in will play a crucial role for PSG in the upcoming season. Spain’s ‘Marca’ recently unveiled their predicted ‘Best 11’ under coach Enrique, with Kylian Mbappe in the forward position and Lee Kang-in supporting the attack in midfield. Alongside Marco Verratti and Bernardo Silva, Lee Kang-in is expected to form the midfield trio. The defensive lineup consists of Nuno Mendes, Luca Hernandez, Marquinhos, and Ashraf Hakimi, with Gianluigi Donnarumma as the starting goalkeeper.
As PSG continues to strengthen its squad under the leadership of coach Luis Enrique, fans eagerly anticipate the official announcement of Lee Kang-in’s signing, which is expected to happen soon.

Born in Slovakia, Skriniar played as a key defender for Inter Milan for six years. He scored 11 goals in 246 league appearances. In 2021, under Antonio Conte’s management system, he also lifted the Serie A championship cup.
