Liverpool and Real Madrid go head-to-head to sign Inter Milan key player

Real Madrid are reportedly eyeing up a transfer deal for Inter Milan centre-back and rumoured Liverpool target Milan Skriniar.

The Slovakia international defender is one of the finest centre-backs in Europe at the moment and would no doubt make an excellent signing for most top clubs.

Don Balon recently claimed the Merseyside Reds were interested in a summer deal for Milan Skriniar, but it seems like he’s going to have other offers too.

A fresh update from Don Balon states Real Madrid could join the running for the 24-year-old defender and try to get his €80million price tag down by offering one of Eder Militao or Luka Modric as part of the deal.

One imagines that could be tempting for Inter Milan, though it remains to be seen how difficult they’ll push to keep hold of one of their most important players.

Notwithstanding Juventus’ total dominance of Serie A in recent years, Antonio Conte seems to have turned Inter Milan into genuine title contenders this campaign, so will want to keep this squad together.

Liverpool will surely also hope they can remain in contention for Milan Skriniar too, with the Merseyside Reds lacking much in the way of backup to the somewhat injury-prone pair of Joe Gomez and Joel Matip.
