Manchester City need to strengthen their defense this winter.
It’s claimed by Italian media that Manchester City will make a move for Milan Skriniar.
The Slovakia international was signed by Inter Milan in July 2017 from Sampdoria for a fee of 34 million euros. The 24-year-old has a contract until 2023 with the club.
Skriniar has played 90 times for Inter Milan since signing from Sampdoria, scoring 4 goals and creating 2 assists.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 24-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
As a member of Slovakia national football team, Skriniar won 23 caps.
Milan Skriniar is widely regarded as a key transfer target for Manchester City this winter. He is a long-term target of Manchester City’s and could be a decent addition for Pep Guardiola’s side.
Skriniar has the talent to play many roles in defense.
According to Calciomercato, “English Premier League giants Manchester City will make a move for Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar in the January transfer window. The current defending champions in England are having a hard time in the defensive unit following an injury to Aymeric Laporte who is expected to miss up to six months of football. City clearly missed their number one centre-back in a surprise 3-2 defeat to Norwich and therefore, as per Daily Mail, the Premier League giants are likely to make a move for Inter’s Skriniar in the January transfer window.”

Inter Milan are reluctant to let Skriniar go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.
Signing the 24-year-old would be a masterstroke from Guardiola.
Manchester City fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.
It will be interesting to see what happens when Manchester City come calling for Milan Skriniar this winter.
