Manchester United are seriously interested in signing Inter defender Milan Skriniar and are preparing an offer for the player, according to a report from English media outlet Daily Mirror.

The report details how the Red Devils are keen on the 25-year-old Slovakian centre back, who is contracted to the Nerazzurri until 2023. United will face competition from Spanish giants Real Madrid, who are looking for a long-term replacement for Sergio Ramos. Inter’s request is around €60 million, although no club so far have offered more than €44.75 million.

Manchester City were previously interested in Skriniar, the report continues, but have changed targets, the same as Catalan giants Barcelona. The battle now is simply between Manchester United and Real Madrid for the player’s signature.

Skriniar has made 32 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2762 minutes. In that time, he has provided one assist and helped the squad keep nine clean sheets.
