Manchester United ‘told that even bid of £65m won’t be enough to convince Inter to part with Milan Skriniar’
- Jose Mourinho is desperate for defensive reinforcements at Manchester United
- Milan Skriniar has consistently been linked with Old Trafford since the summer
- However, reports suggest United will have to break the bank for the Slovakian
Manchester United will need to cough up more than £65million if they want to prise Milan Skriniar away from Inter.
The Slovakian international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford this season with Jose Mourinho crying out for defensive recruits.
However, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, they will need to stump up a significant amount, with the Italian paper reporting that not even a bid of around £65m would convince the Serie A side to sell.

The Slovakian centre back has been linked with a move to Old Trafford throughout this season
Inter are in talks over extending the 23-year-old’s contract but they have yet to reach any agreement, putting United, and rivals Manchester City, on red alert.
Mourinho has made no secret of his desire to firm up his defensive options this season.
He watched his United fall to defeat against Juventus on Tuesday, who could boast Giorgio Chiellini and United’s summer target Leonardo Bonucci in their backline.
Jose Mourinho has made it clear he is unhappy with his current crop of defensive talent
After the 1-0 defeat, Mourinho said: ‘In the second half they defended and they ended the game with an extra central defender to add to the amazing Chiellini, the amazing Bonucci.
‘Mr Bonucci and Mr Chiellini could give some Harvard University classes about how to be a central defender. A team with everything – they have talent everywhere, all over the pitch. So it was a really difficult match for us.’
United return to domestic action on Sunday when they host Everton. The Red Devils are currently stuck in 10th place in the Premier League table, seven points adrift of the top five.
