Mourinho told £100 million will get Manchester United deal done foir Skriniar
There has been some reports which have claimed Inter Milan will not consider bids of less than £100m for Manchester United target Milan Skriniar.
Despite spending well over £300 million during his time at Old Trafford, the special one Jose Mourinho is not 100 per cent happy with his current back-line which has conceded seventeen goals in the Premier League this season.
Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly have all looked shaky at times this season for United as they endured the worst start to a new season in more than 30 years, heaping pressure on the special ones job.
But there has been some rumours in the media which have suggested that the hierarchy will back Mourinho this coming January and hand the Red Devils boss funds to improve the squad, and get their season back on track.
And one name that is reportedly high up on the shopping list is Skriniar, who has fast become one of the most dominant and imposing defenders in Serie A, with his ball-playing ability and leadership at the back just the type of defender Mourinho needs.
However, if United seriously want to complete a deal for Skriniar in the coming windows, they will have to break the transfer record for a defender as Milan will not even open talks about a potential deal unless their £100 million valuation is met, according to the Sun website.
Milan are no fools and know the value of the impressive defender, so are hoping the high asking price will deter the likes of United, and any other chasing club from making a move in January or in next summers transfer window.
Should United pay £100 million for Skriniar? Here is what we think.
United are one of the most financially sound teams in world football and have the ability to splash the cash and pay a big fee to land a potential transfer target, but paying so much money for Skriniar would be a huge risk.
The lad is very talented and could turn into one of the best around, but right now he is only 23-years old and still developing in the game, so he is not worth the £100 million Milan are hoping to get in the coming transfer windows.
