Three-time European champions Manchester United will have to face the threat of both Real Madrid and Barcelona if they want to continue to plot a deal for Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar.

This is according to the publication from Italian news outlet Corriere dello Sport which confirmed the interest of Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Milan Skriniar is a key player for Inter Milan but that has not stopped the big European sides from monitoring his development at the San Siro.

He has played in all the 11 league games played by Inter Milan this season as the Nerazzuri attempt to usurp Juventus at the top of Italian football under the new managerial era of former Chelsea and Siena manager Antonio Conte.

Antonio Conte has employed his customary three-man defence at Inter Milan and Slovakian international defender Milan Skriniar is one of the three defenders.

As a matter of fact, Milan Skriniar has been the only regular in the Inter Milan defence.

Manchester United were interested in Milan Skriniar last summer while Jose Mourinho was the manager.

Milan Skriniar joined Inter Milan from fellow Italian Serie A side Sampdoria in the summer of 2017.

Inter Milan paid £20m for Milan Skriniar and the Slovakian centre back is in his third season at the club.
