“The sceptics are no longer laughing. The 35 million Euro valuation that Inter gave to Milan Skriniar seemed far fetched. However the 22 year old Slovakian defender has been Inter’s best player these past 3 months.”

Tuttosport underlining the incredibly positive start the ex-Sampdoria defender has had in an Inter shirt this season. “He impressed throughout the summer tour friendlies & the first 3 games of the new Serie A season, apart from his indecision for Edin Dzeko goal against Roma – they go on to say – One mistake can not cancel out all that has been good that he has doing so far. Currently 5th in the Serie A stats for most balls won (with 16, just 2 behind the leaders Cabrera & Poli). Inter’s Sporting Director Piero Ausilio managed to snatch Skriniar away from the clutches of Atletico Madrid in the summer who wanted to do a deal with Sampdoria to block him until the January transfer window. However, Ausilio didn’t give up on his target & managed to convince Sampdoria President Massimo Ferrero with a deal that saw Skriniar leave for 10 million Euros up front, 10 more in bonuses & the transfer of Gianluca Caprari to Sampdoria (valued at 15 million). At the start of the summer it seemed that Skriniar would be an investment for the future as the third defender in line behind Miranda & Murillo. However Suning’s abrupt economic stop & the players performances whilst on tour in China convinced the club to change their position & targets in the transfer market.”
