Barcelona & Man Utd target Skriniar thinking only of Inter

Comments()
The Slovakian defender has reiterated that he has no intention of leaving San Siro despite ongoing speculation hinting at a big-money transfer

Milan Skriniar insists his focus remains solely on Inter amid increasing speculation he could leave San Siro during the off-season.

The centre-back has impressed in his first campaign at Inter, having joined for a reported €23 million (£20m/$27m) from Sampdoria.

His seamless transition has not gone unnoticed and the 23-year-old has been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona as a result.

The Slovakian, though, remains committed to the Nerazzurri, telling Gazzetta dello Sport: "I am happy in Milan with Inter, nothing else matters.

"I don't know what's going on in the market and I won't talk about it either.

"I don't know whether Barcelona or other clubs want me. I am serious, none of it interests me.

"I only have Inter in my head."

Skriniar even hinted that he could be set for a prolonged stay at Inter, much like his compatriot Marek Hamsik, who has enjoyed 11 fruitful years at Napoli.

He added: "It's not impossible. I see my friend Marek Hamsik, who has become an icon at Napoli.

"Why can't the same thing happen for me at Inter?

"I am very happy here and there is no reason to think about leaving."
