Inter Milan eyeing Chris Smalling as Milan Skriniar replacement
The Nerazzurri are staring at the prospect of losing star defender Milan Skriniar this summer. The Slovakian international is closing in on a move to Tottenham Hotspur. (h/t Daily Mail)
And should that deal go through, Inter Milan will look to United’s Chris Smalling to replace the 25-year-old centre-back. (h/t Daily Mail)
Smalling has been with United for ten years now, but seems to be on his way out of the club. The 30-year-old spent the last season out on loan at AS Roma and has been leaning towards a permanent transfer to the Italian capital club. (h/t Daily Mail)
However, Roma haven’t been able to come to an agreement with Manchester United over a transfer fee, leading to negotiations getting dragged on. Due to this, the player is believed to have grown frustrated. (h/t Daily Mail)
But if a move to Roma fails to materialise, he might still end up moving to Italy, with Inter Milan now taking an interest in the Englishman. (h/t Daily Mail)

Manchester United have set an asking price of £18m for Smalling. The Englishman has been training away from the first-team since returning after his loan spell and is primed for an exit before the window closes.
The only question remains now is where the 30-year-old ends up, with both Roma and Inter keen on his services. Should he join Inter Milan, he will be joining former teammates Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Ashley Young.
