Milenkovic to Inter move looks very possible as Spurs try and sign Milan Skriniar. Skriniar is failing to adapt to Conte’s system and admires Jose Mourinho a lot. Moreover, with Spurs’ representatives in Milan trying to work out a deal for the Slovak defender, the move looks possible. Inter will not mind cashing in on him if they get the right price. The Nerazzurri want €60M for the defender but Spurs are only willing to pay €50M including add-ons.
The two parties are likely to find a middle ground if Inter really want to sell him. If that happens the club will be in pole position to acquire Nikola Milenkovic. The Serbian defender is a class act in himself. Also, the 22-year-old is versatile enough to play as a centre-back or right-back. This makes him the ideal candidate for Skriniar’s right centre-back slot. Furthermore, Calcio Mercato reports that Antonio Conte is very keen on bringing in the young defender. While Milan are also in the race to sign him, they cannot afford his €40M price tag.
If Skriniar’s sale goes through, Inter can bring Milenkovic to the San Siro within days adds Calcio Mercato. While Inter will try their best to bring down Fiorentina’s asking price, the two clubs are expected to agree to the deal in a short time frame.
Nikola Milenkovic to Inter can make the Nerazzurri defence click
There’s no doubt that Milan Skriniar is one of the best defenders in the world right now. But the 25-year-old does not fit into Conte’s system. The back-three prevents him from being his absolute best. On the other hand, Nikola Milenkovic has all the attributes to be able to fit into the system. Inter’s wide centre-back should be solid as Achraf Hakimi on right wing back is an attack orientened players. Thus no one’s sure of Hakimi can be equally effective while defending. Milenkovic is just 22 and is quick enough to cover the ground when the situation arises. Thus, Milenkovic to Inter will be the perfect deal for Inter’s defence.
