Inter defender Milan Skriniar doesn’t feel that he has any reason to leave the Nerazzurri, and he believes that transfer links to Tottnham Hotspur are nothing more than rumours.
Speaking from the Slovakia national team training camp, as reported by FCInterNews, Skriniar emphasized that the rumours of transfer interest in him by the Premier League side are nothing more than that.
Former Inter coach Antonio Conte already looks set to reunite with one player from the Nerazzurri in the form of Ivan Perisic who is all set for a free transfer to Spurs.
The coach’s interest may not end there, however, with transfer rumours that Tottenham could be after Alessandro Bastoni as well, and other players who Conte trusts from his time as Inter coach.
Skriniar is among those players, and the fact that the team need to make a major sale this summer could lend credence to the possibility, but the defender himself flatly rebuffed the seriousness of the links.
“I have a contract with Inter and I’m happy in Milan,” he said. “These rumours come around like clockwork every year or six months and there’s nothing to them – I’m satisfied in Milan.”
He added that “Last season we were champions of Italy, this year we won the Coppa Italia and the Supercoppa Italiana. We still have something to fight for, we’ve set our goals for ourselves. I think next season we’ll be competitive on all fronts.”
“Even if we didn’t win the title, we managed to win two trophies,” Skriniar reflected, “the Supercoppa Italiana and the Coppa Italia. We had the Scudetto in our hands, but we couldn’t quite manage the important moments, for example in the second derby we lost in three minutes despite being ahead in the 75th minute.”
“We were the better side in that game,” the 27-year-old argued, “so that defeat may have been decisive. Then there was the loss at Bologna, not to mention the period between February and March when dropped a lot of points.”
He concluded that “In the end, we had a good season because we managed to win the Coppa by beating Juventus.”
