Agent: 'Skriniar worth €100m'

“Real Madrid and Barcelona want Milan Skriniar and will try to convince Inter,” said his agency. “Manchester City offered €55m, but he’s worth €100m.”

The 24-year-old Slovakia international centre-back made the move from Sampdoria to Inter in 2017 for €34m and has gone from strength to strength.

“Real Madrid want to sign him, so do Barcelona. If they manage to convince Inter, they could sign him this summer,” agent Mithat Halis told Spanish paper As.

Halis works for Stars & Friends, the agency that deals with Skriniar and his personal agent, Karol Csonto.

“Skriniar is a great professional. If Real Madrid really want him, they will try, but there are many cannibalistic agents who try to steer players to the clubs that they want. For example, Mino Raiola – who represents Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic – wants to do that. He wants to confuse Skriniar, but he is a player who is contracted to our agency.

“Inter paid €28m plus bonuses for him and six months later Manchester City offered €55m. Now he is worth around €100m.

“I think a possible transfer could be complicated precisely because these cannibal intermediaries try to get involved.”
