A representative claims “I can see Milan Skriniar going to Real Madrid” over the likes of Barcelona and Manchester City if he leaves Inter.

Reports in Spain suggested over the weekend that Barca and Madrid were ready to do battle for Skriniar.

However, Mithat Halis - who works for Star&Friend, the agency representing the defender – believes Los Blancos are “closer” to his client.

“Skriniar is worth €100m,” he told AS.

“Real Madrid and Barcelona have been competing for his transfer for two years.

“Right now, Real Madrid are closer to reaching an agreement with Inter because they want and need the player much more than Barcelona.

“Real Madrid must look for alternatives to Ramos and Varane, which explains Madrid’s approach to Inter.

“I can see Milan Skriniar going to Madrid.”

Serie B all set for VAR

VAR will be rolled out to Serie B from next season after clubs voted unanimously for its application.

VAR has already been used in the second tier, in last season’s promotion playoffs and relegation playouts.

Today, 19 of the 20 teams currently competing in Serie B voted in favour of it being utilised full time as of the 2020-21 campaign.

For now, it is expected to be used offline for 2-3 games this term before being installed properly for the playoffs and playouts.

The technology had a similar rollout in Serie A prior to its permanent implementation at the start of 17-18.

Official: Maradona quits Gimnasia

Argentine side Gimnasia LP have confirmed that Napoli icon Diego Maradona is “no longer” their coach.

It had been reported that Maradona would quit Gimnasia if President Gabriel Pellegrino did not stand for re-election, and that has now proven to be the case.

“Maradona is no longer Gimnasia’s coach,” the outgoing patron told Fox Sports Argentina.

“[Reserve-team coach Mariano] Messera will manage the team against Arsenal [Sarandi].”

The 59-year-old was only hired in September and had improved their fortunes, winning three of his last five games in charge.

Despite that, Gimnasia remain in the Superliga relegation zone, three points adrift of safety.
