Skriniar has impressed for Inter this season making 38 appearance scoring four times since joining from Sampdoria in the summer. And his form this season has put some of Europe’s elite clubs on high alert, with both Manchester clubs said to be keeping tabs on the Slovakian.
Inter currently have no plans to sell any of their star players after making it back into the Champions league for the first time in six years. Skriniar is regarded as one of the most talented young prospects in Europe, so it is likely that Inter will command a fee of over £60m for his services.
Skriniar’s agent Karol Csonto told actuality.sk (via calciomercato.com): “Milan is very happy at Inter: the fans love it and he has played an amazing season, standing out as one of the best defenders ever.
#Skriniar: “It’s flattering to receive all of these compliments, but please don’t just talk about me. it’s unfair on my teammates. we mustn’t forget Miranda & Ranocchia, two extraordinary players and people, or any of the other defenders who played this year.” 💪🏻🇸🇰🇮🇹⚫️🔵 pic.twitter.com/orxeAAvotb

“I can say that we are not in a position to request a transfer to the Nerazzurri club: there are offers of the best five clubs in the world, but we have no intention of putting pressure on Inter.”
Csonto also revealed that Inter have offered Skriniar a contract extension with the club. He said:
Milan Skriniar – from Slovakian MŠK Žilina to one of the best defenders in Europe in just two years.

“There could be a proposal that makes Skriniar the highest paid defender in the world but, in any case, would only serve the certainty of playing him. And, in this sense, Inter has already put on the table a very attractive renewal proposal.”
