Man City willing to bid big for Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar

Manchester City are willing to bid big for Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar.

Calciomercato.com says City boss Pep Guardiola is setting his sights on Skriniar and could up his offer with Inter Milan wanting around £70m.

City baulked at Leicester's valuation of Harry Maguire last summer, but may feel the investment is necessary this time around due to John Stones and Aymeric Laporte's struggles.

Guardiola has been forced to play Fernandinho at centre-back with Laporte struggling with injury.

Laporte has managed only seven league appearances due to an injury picked up at the end of August and has only played four times since, picking up an another injury against Real Madrid in the Champions League.
