Man City want to sign Milan Skriniar

Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar, who also turns out to be a target of Real Madrid.

According to The Daily Star, Cityzens are willing to splash £80m for the Nerazzurri defender to fix their issues in the defence.

Skriniar has been a prominent fixture under Antonio Conte this season, playing almost in all Serie A games. Forming a solid back-line with Stefan Vrij and Diego Godin, the Slovak has helped Inter secure 7 clean sheets this season.

The 24-year-old turned out to be a subject of interest from clubs like Manchester United and Barcelona last summer.

City’s defensive frailties cost them much of the games in Premier League this season, and also handed Liverpool a formidable lead in the title race.

Aymeric Laporte was hit with a serious injury at the start the season while John Stones missed as many as 10 games due to injury and lack of form.
