Star Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar has opened up about his future amid the latest round of speculation surrounding him.

Skriniar – who is believed to be negotiating a new contract – has been linked with United in the past and Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport claimed in June that the Red Devils had offered £57m for Skriniar in an attempt to lure Inter into a summer sale, but it was since claimed that Inter wanted £70m.

The 23-year-old, who has always stated his desire to stay with Inter, is under contract until 2022, and was linked with an €80m move to Bayern Munich in Wednesday’s European papers.

“I just read about these things, but I do not think about it. There were rumours during the summer but in the end, nothing happened and I do not think it is happening now,” Skriniar revealed.

“We have a lot of matches with Inter. Right after the national team, there is an important challenge against Milan in the derby, we have to prepare well.

“Juventus are leading in Italy, but we can also play against them. We are where we wanted to be from the start of the season and we will try to continue like this with this series of results for as long as possible.”
