Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar has reacted to the rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid and Premier League clubs in the coming summer.

The defender admits he would like a move to England but he fancies a move to Spain than England.

Skriniar's representative, Karol Csonto, has name-checked Manchester United, Barcelona, Manchester City and Real Madrid as clubs interested in the defender, while also revealing a €65m was made and rejected by Inter in January.

The centre-back told Sport: "I recognise that this is a breathtaking sum, but it does not take much to raise prices. I did not try to do anything - sincerely. I left everything in the hands of my agent. I was told that Inter would not let me go, I'd like to stay, but if it was decided I would have gone."

the Slovak international continued: "What attracts me most are Real Madrid and Barcelona, but even the clubs of Manchester are top clubs. The Premier League is the most competitive championship in the world, even if this season Manchester City is dominating. It would be difficult to decide which club to go to. It will also depend on the agreements or on what role they would guarantee me.

"If I had to go to a club to sit on the bench and play only in the cup I would not go anywhere." Skriniar was signed from Sampdoria last season and has gone to make 24 appearances for Inter Milan and scored three goals for the San Siro outfit.
