“However, this does not change my will. I have already said it in the past, I want to stay at Inter.”
Inter won their first Serie A title since 2009/10 and Skriniar wanted to the scudetto triumph to his homeland.
“The feeling was really unreal, celebrating the victory on Sunday with all the fans was wonderful,” Skriniar said.
“Personally, it is a title that I also dedicate to my country, Slovakia. I am proud to be able to represent it and to carry such an important title at home.”
