Man Utd ready to turn to Inter Milan defender Skriniar

Manchester United are preparing an offer for Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to find a long-term partner for Harry Maguire - an £85million buy from last summer.

The Sun reports United have been chasing Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli for over a year.

The Senegal star, 29, decided to stay put last summer but has revealed he wants to quit the club this year.

But recent reports claim Koulibaly has opted to join Manchester City.

With that in mind, United have been forced to look elsewhere for a ready-made superstar to stick in the heart of their defence.

And Inter Milan star Skriniar has been targeted with the Serie A giants boasting a wealth of defensive stars already.

And the 26-year-old Slovakian - valued at around £52.5m - could now head to Old Trafford.
