According to a report from calciomercato.com, Man City will ‘make a new attempt‘ to sign Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar in the summer transfer window – with the player reportedly valued at around £80 million.
Skriniar, who has started 24 Serie A games for Inter this season, is currently a mainstay under Antonio Conte as the Nerazzurri chase a coveted Italian title in a battle with fierce challengers Juventus.
Past news from the Daily Express indicated that we were looking to beat fellow interested party Real Madrid to his signature after failing to sign him previously for £55 million last season, but now a latest update has reignited rumours that he could be heading to the Etihad Stadium.
Should City reignite their interest in Skriniar?
As per this report, Inter boss Conte has conceded that Skriniar has had ‘some difficulties‘ adjusting to a back three this season, but still views him as a crucial asset heading into the latter stages of this campaign.
However, if the Italian giants were to sell him, it would apparently take a ‘dizzying‘ offer to swap them – with few clubs having barrels of money to spend given the current climate.
Some good news for City supporters is, according to this report, even regardless of UEFA’s FFP sanction, that we may make a fresh attempt to land Skriniar any way.
Taking that into account, it may be a plausible idea to swoop for Skriniar in the future, but whether or not he would be worth the reported £80 million price tag remains to be seen.
