Inter Milan star Milan Skriniar has slammed speculation that he’s set to leave the club in a foul-mouthed rant on his Instagram page.
The Slovakian defender was identified by Jose Mourinho as a target for the Red Devils and the Portuguese strongly recommended the 23-year-old to executive-vice chairman Ed Woodward.
United remain keen to strengthen in central defence after Mourinho’s sacking and Skriniar is a name on their shortlist. Reports this week claimed Inter were keen on Atletico Madrid star Diego Godin but would have to part with Skriniar to make space for the Uruguayan.
However, Skriniar has not taken kindly to the speculation and took to his Instagram page to thoroughly dimiss the links.
‘You write things that you don’t even know,” Skriniar posted on his Instagram story. ‘You are sh**. Now write an article on this.’
in FA Cup draw United have made Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly their priority to strengthen in defence and have been encouraged by the Senegalese’s desire to join the club.
The Red Devils hoped Napoli’s exit at the group stage of the Champions League would increase their chances of landing the 27-year-old. However, the Serie A giants are unwilling to sell in January so United will have to wait until the summer to land him.
