Manchester United are preparing to make a summer bid for Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar, according to reports from TeamTalk.

The Red Devils have reportedly made the Slovakian their main priority this upcoming transfer window as they look to mount a title challenge next term.

Skriniar first burst onto the scene in 2016 when he moved to Serie A side Sampdoria from Zilina for a fee of around £5.5million.

After impressive form he earned a move to Serie A giants Inter 18 months later, a fee which earned Sampdoria five times the amount they paid for the defender.

Skriniar has won 23 international caps for Slovakia.

Skriniar has played 56 games for the San Siro side since 2017 and has caught the eye of many of the biggest clubs around Europe, with teams such as Manchester City, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich all thought to have made enquiries throughout January.

United are also reportedly interested in signing Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly and Sampdoria’s Joachim Andersen but it’s claimed that chief executive Ed Woodward has made Skriniar his top-target.

Reports are also suggesting that interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already voiced his opinion over United’s future potential signings despite having yet to land the role on a permanent basis.
