Milan Skriniar in on the verge of agreeing to a January transfer from Inter Milan to Real Madrid.

Skriniar has been the topic of much speculation over the last 18 months, but up until now has opted to stay at the San Siro.

With all the top clubs in Europe apparently harboring an interest in the Slovakian defender.

It now appears that he is bound for the Santiago Bernabeau.

According to the player’s agent, Mithat Halis, in an interview with AS, Real are in the driving seat.

There are other interested, but the player is edging towards swapping Milan for Madrid.

He said:

“Skriniar is worth 100 million Euros.”

“Real Madrid and Barcelona have been competing for his signature for the last two years.”

“Now Real Madrid is closer to reaching an agreement with Inter because they want – and need – him much more than Barcelona.”

If the move was to go through, Zinedine Zidane would boast a formidable backline, which would include, Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos along with Milan Skriniar.
