Man City eye Skriniar as a possible option in the winter transfer window. The Slovenian defender has another admirer, and this time it is the Premier League champions that are keeping an eye on him. Skriniar is a key player for Inter and is a rock at the back and the Nerazzurri had to keep him this summer. Also, Inter are looking to extend his contract soon to keep him at the club longer.
Manchester City have a prolific backline, but they are currently struggling with injuries to several players. Also, Laporte could be out for a longer period as he has a complicated injury. However, Man City did bring Akanji, Inter’s target during the summer. But they are looking to buy a defender that can help them in the future as well. Also, Skriniar’s quality is appreciated by many managers across Europe.
Man City eye Milan Skriniar to improve their defense in winter
Every club is planning to increase its depth because of the World Cup. Laporte, Ruben Dias, Stones, and Nathan Ake will be going to Qatar for the World Cup. Man City want to plan for the future to have more depth if anything happens to those players. Also, Skriniar can adapt to various formations and has the physicality to play in the Premier League. His passing and ball carrying ability will help him to adjust to Guardiola’s brand of football.
However, Inter will try to keep him as he is an integral part of the Nerazzurri’s defense. Inter Milan have been struggling defensively, and losing Skriniar will open up the defense even further. Also, it will be hard to find a replacement for Skriniar in a short period. But if Man City come up with a lucrative offer on the table, then Inter will be interested. The Nerazzurri have to generate profits before next year’s transfer window.
