Milan Skriniar is one of the best defenders in Italian Serie A. Therefore, the Inter Milan defender arouses the interest of several clubs throughout Europe. Thus, Internazionale defined Skriniar’s price tag to negotiate the shirt 37: 80 million euros.
That’s twice the price they paid Serie A side Sampdoria for the Slovak defender, which was 34 million euros, three years ago.
The 25-year-old Slovakia international is one of the main Real Madrid targets, as the Spanish giants are looking for a Sergio Ramos substitute, as the legendary defender is getting to the end of his career.
Besides Real Madrid, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City has also been looking for a decent defender, since they apparently don’t have enough defenders, having to turn Brazilian defensive midfielder Fernandinho into a defender sometimes.
Well, I guess it is what happens when you only sign offensive players. Mr. Guardiola, you have literally billions of euros to spend, try to do it wisely at least.
No, but seriously, the young Slovak is today one of the best players in his position. His Inter Milan contract goes until 2023, but the Giuseppe Meazza side might as well receive some proposals in order to take Skriniar out of Milan for the next season.
At the moment, the Italian Serie A is still on a halt, but very close to the restart. Internazionale is at the 3rd position, with 54 points, behind Lazio and Juventus. As a result, the club seeks in the remaining matchdays to remain in the qualifying zone for the Uefa Champions League.
In this way, the Nerazzurri side will host Sampdoria on the return of the Italian Serie A. However, Antonio Conte’s men still dream of an unlikely title as they’re nine points behind first-place Juventus.
