Inter Milan defender responds to Man Utd transfer links
Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar has been rumored to be Jose Mourinho’s top defensive transfer target but the Slovak international is keeping his focus despite the links.
Jose Mourinho in the summer was keen to add a defensive shield to his backline as he publicly declared his interest in landing a center back. Manchester United were linked with a number of center backs in the summer including Tottenham Hotspur’s Toby Alderweireld, Leicester City’s Harry Maguire and Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng. Skriniar was also part of the center backs linked with a move to Old Trafford.
When asked if he has heard the rumors linking him with a move to United, Skriniar replied, “Yes, but I don’t know if it’s true. Personally, I don’t know, as the transfer window has just shut, so it’s hard for me to say anything. There was some noise in the summer, but nothing happened, so I’m not letting it bother me.”
