Manchester United tipped to sign Nathan Ake over Milan Skriniar

Speaking to Stadium Astro (h/t Express), former Tottenham Hotspur defender Gary Stevens has urged Manchester United to sign Bournemouth star Nathan Ake over Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar.

Ake has grown into one of the best young centre-backs in the Premier League since making the switch to Bournemouth. While the Cherries have endured a difficult campaign this time out, the Dutchman has been among the few positives for them.

Skriniar, on the other hand, is regarded as one of the finest centre-backs in Europe. The Slovakian international has been a mainstay at the heart of the Inter Milan defence for a number of years now and at 25, still has his best years ahead of him.

Former Spurs star Stevens though, believes that Manchester United would be better served by making a move for Ake this summer. (h/t Express)

“You mentioned the Inter Milan central defender, Skriniar, yeah I like him as a player. You talk about foreigners coming into the Premier League, some settle very quickly, others don’t, so therefore I would tend to favour Ake over him in all honesty.”

Our defence has been performing ably since the turn of the year. However, there remain concerns over Victor Lindelof, while captain Harry Maguire has also shown he can be prone to an error or two. So signing a central defender in the summer wouldn’t be the worst idea.

And Ake could be a good addition considering the fact that he has proven himself in the Premier League. In addition, with Bournemouth staring at relegation, the Dutchman could end up costing much lesser than Skriniar. (h/t Express)
