Man Utd News: Report Names Mourinho’s Top January Target



Manchester United approaches and ‘verbal offers’ for quality target, response now awaited

Manchester United quest for a new centre-back is well-known as the English giants have been linked to several defenders all season.

One of the targets Milan Skriniar is making the news as Italian media claim that United have a verbal agreement with the defender to join in January. Skriniar is one of the top defenders in Italy and has improved in the past two seasons, emerging as a real leader in the backline for Inter Milan.

Italian sports tabloid, Calcio Mercato reports that several top European sides including United have made approaches to Inter Milan for the defender.  Manchester United are believed to be willing to pay around £65 million for the highly rated defender.

United manager Jose Mourinho has made the Slovakian international his number 1 target in January and United chiefs are keen to force through the move.

If the reports are true then Skriniar could be moving to Old Trafford in January as the transfer fee is more than worth the value of the sturdy defender. Skriniar’s arrival would strengthen and shake up the defence as the likes of Phil Jones and Bailly could become surplus to requirements.

Skriniar has been an ever-presentin his team where he has made 13 appearances for the Italian side this season.
