Milan Skriniar’s progress has at Inter Milan has attracted the attention of top clubs and his agent recently disclosed that Real Madrid is keen on signing the defender.

With rumours of Raphael Varane considering away from the Estadio Santiago rife in the Spanish press, the 24-year-old Slovenian defender may end up becoming his replacement.

Skriniar has made his name as one of the best defenders in Italian football in recent years and was once linked to Man United earlier in the campaign.

Mauro Icardi's wife and agent, Wanda Nara, has announced that he plans to remain at Inter Milan for next season.

“Skriniar has a professional attitude. If Real Madrid wants to sign him, they can, there are many agents like cannibals, who aim to take players to teams that want them.”

Considering the fact the European Champions are seeking for Skriniar’s services, it’s believed Inter won’t let him go on the cheap.

“Inter paid 28 million euros to Sampdoria (in 2017) and, six months later, Manchester City offered 55 million,” Halis said.
