The Slovenian defender was the subject of a £57 million bid by the Red Devils, which was reportedly rejected by Inter
Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar has revealed he has had contact from Manchester United, amid rumours of a mega-money offer.
As talkSPORT told you last week, it was reported that the Old Trafford club had a bid of £57 million for Skriniar snubbed by Inter.
The news came after months of speculation linking the Slovakian with both United and their noisy neighbours Manchester City.
But Inter insist the 23-year-old, who only arrived from Sampdoria a year ago, is not for sale following his impressive form last term.
Now Skriniar has admitted that he was flattered by United’s enquiry – but insists he is happy with how things have turned out.
He told the Slovakian football federation’s official website: “Manchester United? I heard from them and it made me proud.
“But I’m even happier that Inter decided to reject it and that they believe so much in me.”
Skriniar joined the Serie A side in 2017, signing a five-year deal after a €20 million move from Sampdoria.
Last season, he averaged a 91.2% pass success rate – the seventh highest in the Italian league.
