Manchester City has plenty of center-backs, with Manuel Akanji recently joining John Stones, Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, and Nathan Ake, but The Sun’s Dan King reports that they’re interested in Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar.
Manchester City is said to be competing with Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea for the ‘highly-rated’ defender, whose contract expires next summer. Skriniar may be available for a free transfer at the end of the season, so he’ll have plenty of suitors.
The 27-year-old joined Inter from Sampdoria in 2017 and has gone on to make 224 appearances in all competitions, scoring 11 goals with four assists. This season, Skriniar has played in nine games across the board, amassing 789 minutes from a possible 810, so he’s an important player for Inter.
Manchester City might have fancied Skriniar before they signed Akanji, but it remains to be seen where the Slovakian international would fit in the team. If Skiniar is set on leaving Inter next year, he’ll be a coveted player in the transfer market, but City might not be genuine suitors.
