Where lies the future of Milan Skriniar? Mithat Halis, the partner of the former company that represented Inter defender, of Star & Friend, talked about the Slovakian central defender. These are his words reported as by Spanish outlet AS (
"Skriniar is worth 100 million euros. Real Madrid and Barcelona were battling to sign him two years ago. Right now Real Madrid is closer to reaching an agreement with Inter, because they want the player and they need the defender much more than Barcelona".
Halis then goes on to reveal that there have actually been approaches from Real Madrid to Inter for their star central defender:
"Real Madrid should look for alternatives to holders Sergio Ramos and Varane, which is why there was an approach with Inter. Skriniar can go to Real Madrid".
But as CalcioMercato.Com wrote earlier today, Barcelona, on the other hand, isn’t convinced enough of Skriniar to sign him or make an approach for him. The Slovakian defender has been heavily linked with the Catalan side in recent weeks, who are looking for a defender to strengthen that department. However, a deal now seems unlikely.
As reported by the Spanish outlet,
, Skriniar was offered to the Catalan side a while back. However, they didn't express any interest in the potential transfer, effectively leaving the race for the big defender.
Mariusz Kulesza, agent of Fiorentina goalkeeper Bartlomiej Dragowski, talks about his client to
"Bart is happy in Florence. Certainly, when you have the opportunity to play and help the team, everything is more beautiful.
Where was he close to leaving Fiorentina in the summer? There was strong interest from an English club, I believe it can now be admitted. In the end, his choice was to stay at Fiorentina and it was the right choice. Now both Bart and I think only of the future".
Roma was one step away from signing Hakim Ziyech, under Monchi's reign, but the decisive move was never made when it was possible. CalcioMercato.com can now report that Ziyech remains a target, but a deal has now become more difficult. However, the Ajax winger, who has scored 6 goals and 15 assists so far this season, is now ready to be a protagonist on the market again.
There are three clubs interested in Ziyech. In Italy, the Giallorossi continue to monitor him, but they are not the only ones. Napoli also follows the progress and performance of the player born in 1993, who is now finally ready for the big move. Ziyech is not a priority for Napoli now, but he is a player that they’re monitoring. Milan is also monitoring Ziyech’s situation.
There is, however, a club that is serious more serious about him than the others: Tottenham. Spurs, who will greet Eriksen goodbye in the summer, want to bring quality to their midfield, and Lorenzo Pellegrini and Hakim Ziyech are in their sights. That they could have been teammates at Roma, and now they may find themselves, side by side, in the Premier League.
