Latest: Spurs have ‘submitted offer’ for world class defender but Real Madrid plan to hijack the deal

By Mehdi Gokal -

According to Football Insider‘s source, Real Madrid are ready to beat Tottenham to the signing of Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar.

The 27-year-old centre-back is in the final year of his contract and could leave for free at the end of the season if a new deal with the Italian giants cannot be reached.

The report states that Inter rejected offers for Skriniar from PSG in the summer, while Tottenham and Chelsea also ‘submitted offer’ for him in the previous window.

As covered in our earlier report, Spurs remain interested in the Inter Milan star and Fabio Paratici has been tipped to pull off a deal to sign him on a free next summer.

However, according to the latest rumours, Real Madrid have registered an interest in the defender which should worry the likes of Spurs and Chelsea.

According to the report, the Spanish giants who capitalised on the free agent market last summer when they signed Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea, and are now planning a similar deal for Skriniar.

This will be a huge blow for Conte as he’s supposedly someone the Italian really likes and wants to sign.

Tottenham did sign Clement Lenglet on loan in the summer and in case needed, they have the option to sign him on a permanent but Lenglet was always meant to be a stop-gap signing until Spurs signed their main targets.

It would be a shame if Spurs missed out on the Inter Milan man, especially given that they had a chance to sign him for a significant fee in the summer. The board preferred to wait and sign him on a free, but that may turn out to be a decision they’ll end up regretting.

I think it would be more likely that Skriniar would prefer a move to a bigger club..
We could well be in for him if we have a good season. If we manage to win something, actually compete and hang in the title race, and do well in the CL. He’s worked under Conte before and they won Serie A together so this would also factor. Perisic came and I thought he would stay or go somewhere else.
Clubs who win bidding wars and offer more money in contracts don’t necessarily get their man.. It’s mainly all about where the player wants to go.

Chelsea, City, Real Madrid and PSG are interested in him. I think you can safely forget Levy going up against any of them.
