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.

“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.
