Man Utd, Real Madrid ‘join City & Barca’ in race for Inter defender

Manchester United and Real Madrid have joined Manchester City and Barcelona in their pursuit of Inter centre-back Milan Skriniar.

The Slovakia international remains hot property on the transfer market and the list of interested parties continues to grow.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Manchester United are making him a priority for their defence this summer, after Kalidou Koulibaly seemed to lean more towards PSG.

The price-tag is going to be in the region of €60m for the former Sampdoria player, who just turned 25 and is under contract until June 2023.

Inter paid €34m to sign Skriniar from Samp in 2017 and he has become a mainstay in the Nerazzurri back three.

As well as Manchester United, Real Madrid are also stepping up their pursuit of the central defender.

Manchester City and Barcelona’s interest goes back several months, but so far nobody has been prepared to pay over €40m.
