Inter Milan has turned down Tottenham’s offer for a swap deal that involves Milan Skriniar, according to TMW.
The report claims that the Slovakian has been a long-term target of Jose Mourinho and the special one has made a move for him this summer in what is believed to be swap deal involving Tanguy Ndombele.
Ndombele has struggled in his first season at Spurs, and he even fell out with Mourinho during the season.
Spurs aren’t looking to cash in on him yet, but Inter Milan showed interest, and the Lilywhites thought they might take advantage of that and get Skriniar in return.
The report, however, claims that Inter turned down the deal because they want a cash-only transfer for the defender.
Skriniar hasn’t had the best of seasons in the just-concluded campaign, but that hasn’t stopped teams from considering a move for him.
The report claims that Bayern Munich, Barcelona and both Manchester clubs have also enquired about him.
After allowing Jan Vertonghen to leave the club for free, Spurs will see the need to add more defenders so they can build on their fine end to the season under Mourinho.
Skriniar played 32 league games for Inter this season and he remains an important part of their team, but it remains unclear if Spurs will increase their offer for him.
It should be reiterated that there are other reports that claim that Tottenham will not be selling Ndombele (Football London) and this makes the whole picture very confusing when it comes to the midfielder’s future.
