Manchester United is prepared to battle Real Madrid for Inter Milan ace as both clubs look to strengthen their team ahead of the coming season.
The Premier League team want the service of Milan Skriniar, as well as the European Champions, Manchester United, has the likes of Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof but they are not convinced with the current crops of the defenders at their disposal.
Real Madrid is not short of options at the centre back, the La Liga champions sign Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea last season despite having David Alaba, Eder Militao and Nacho Fernandez in that position.
Skriniar would be a free agent next season if Inter Milan is unable to meet his demands with Real Madrid and Manchester United ready to negotiate a deal with the Slovakian international.
Manchester is prepared to make an offer in January for the defender and would be willing to include Anthony Martial or Donny van de Beek in the deal.
Skriniar is not short of options with Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea also being linked with a move for the centre back, with both Real Madrid and Manchester United are not short of options in that area, the Slovakian defender might join the likes of Chelsea or the Ligue 1 champions next season.
