According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Barcelona have made a move for 23-year-old Slovakia international Milan Skriniar, who is on the agenda of several European heavyweights including Manchester City.
The Italian daily reports that Inter have received an offer of 50 million euros for the central defender and although the Serie A club have not confirmed from where the bid materialised La Gazzetta have stated that the Camp Nou board were behind it.
Skriniar: "My objective is to play in the Champions League with Inter"
When asked recently about his future, Skriniar said it depended in large part on where Inter finish up in the Serie A table this season: “My objective is to play in the Champions League with Inter,” he replied. On Sunday, Inter face what is essentially a playoff for a place at Europe’s top table next season against Lazio, who currently occupy fourth in the table. To reach the Champions League, Inter must beat the Rome-based side in the Stadio Olimpico.
Skriniar has been linked with a move to LaLiga previously, with both Real Madrid and Atlético having been credited with an interest in a player who cost Inter 23 million euros when he signed from Sampdoria last summer.
