If reports in the media are anything to go by then once again Manchester United are linked with a move to sign Milan Skriniar.
Last year, the Red Devils were reportedly highly keen on signing the Slovakian international. TMW reported that the Old Trafford outfit were even prepared to spend 85 million euros to sign him.
However, in the end, Solskjaer opted to break the bank to sign English center half Harry Maguire from the Foxes.
Transfer: Double signing close & Man Utd ready to offer key role to sign £30million midfielder
As per a recent story covered by Mirror Sport, Man United ready move to finally sign the Inter Milan central defender but they face competition from 13-time European Champions Real Madrid.
The renowned British outlet have reported that the Nerazzurri are prepared to let their star leave and value him at around £52.5million. However, so far, clubs have only shown indication of paying around £40million plus bonuses to secure his signature.
Skriniar has been a regular starter for Inter since joining them before the start of the 2017-18 campaign but unfortunately, he has not won a single title with the Italian giants.
Before the suspension of the current season, the 25-year-old featured in 32 games in all competitions under the management of former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.
The 31-capped international’s current contract with the Serie A side will expire in 2023 and as per Mirror Sport, United’s hopes of luring him could depend on CL qualification. The Red Devils were 3 points behind fourth placed Chelsea before the season was halted.
Solskjaer largely amplified the quality of his back-line last summer by signing Maguire and Wan-Bissaka and stats indicate that we have been defensively better as compared to the last campaign.
In your opinion, do Man United really need to sign another defender this summer? Should they make a move to lure £52.5million-rated Milan Skriniar?
£52 million for a defender, that’s too much for me. At the moment i just don’t think UNITED do need a defender rather a shape and fast winger.
yes we need another defender since Baily is having fitness issues
