“I’m satisfied” – Blow for Mourinho as key £57m target responds to Man United rumours

Milan Skriniar

Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar has spoken about the interest shown by Manchester United but claims he has not decided about his future.

While speaking to the Slovakian football association’s website (h/t Manchester Evening News), the Inter defender also claimed that he was “satisfied” at the moment.

“I’m glad they’re interested in me, but Inter decided on how he decided, so I can not say anything more about it. I am, however, satisfied.”

The Slovakian played 38 league games for the Serie A giants and scored four goals but more importantly, he helped the side finish in the top-four.

The report also claims that the defender is a potential target for Jose Mourinho ahead of next season and Inter have already rejected a £57m bid made by us for the Slovakian defender.

We have been looking at bringing in recruits for next season, having already signed Diogo Dalot and Fred, and it does seem likely that we will be bringing in a central defender too.

Now that Skriniar has been linked with a move, this raises questions about what could happen to the likes of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling in the coming years.

The English pair has not really stepped up under Mourinho and our manager could be looking to either replace the pair or put them on the bench and start Eric Bailly with Skriniar.

Either way, it does seem like there will be a few more transfers coming into Old Trafford this season as we look to pick up a trophy after a barren season last time around.
