‘Real Madrid want him and so do Barcelona’: Milan Skriniar’s agent claims Spanish heavyweight are chasing Inter defender
- Milan Skriniar has been linked with an exit from Inter Milan in the summer
- Defender’s agent said he will not allow Mino Raiola to get his hands on deal
- He also claimed Manchester City bid for him before buying Aymeric Laporte
Both Real Madrid and Barcelona want to sign Milan Skriniar from Inter Milan, according to the defender’s agent.
The 24-year-old has been outstanding for the Italian side this season and could be set for a move this summer.
‘Real Madrid want him, and so do Barcelona,’ Mithat Halis told Diario AS.
Milan Skriniar is a target for Real Madrid and Barcelona, according to his agent
‘Whoever can convince Inter to let sell in the summer will sign him,’ he added of the Slovakian.
The former Sampdoria man has been a rock at the back for Inter since joining the club two years ago.
Halis also revealed that Manchester City attempted to sign him in January last year with a £47million bid.
Inter refused to budge and went on to bring in Aymeric Laporte for £57m to bolster Pep Guardiola’s defensive resources.
The central defender has been one of Inter Milan’s outstanding players this season
Skriniar joined Inter in 2017 and the club have rejected numerous bids for him in the past
Halis went on to speak about the potential involvement of super agent Mino Raiola in any deal involving Skriniar, flatly rejecting the possibility.
‘Raiola may try to mislead Skriniar, however he has a contract with us and we will negotiate any deal,’ he added.
Skriniar has helped Inter to third place in Serie A and a Champions League spot looks assured for Luciano Spalletti’s side, though whether the defender will be at the San Siro next season remains to be seen.
