Inter Milan are prepared to consider ‘significant’ offers for Milan Skriniar, head coach Antonio Conte told Sky in Italy, but for the moment, he is a part of the project currently unfolding at the club.
The Nerazzurri lost the services of Diego Godin who recently joined Cagliari, and according to sporting director Piero Ausilio, they are not quite prepared to give up on another defender of high quality right now, but he also confirmed that some talks have been held with his Tottenham Hotspur counterpart, Steve Hitchin.
The two clubs, however, remain far apart in their respective valuations of the 25-year-old Slovakia international, with Inter demanding €60 million for his services and Spurs believing they shouldn’t pay more than half that amount. Inter would perhaps be willing to accept €50m, but that’s as far as it goes.
Skriniar wasn’t included in the squad for Inter’s 4-3 win over Fiorentina on Saturday, but Conte made it clear it was purely a matter of technical choice.
“Should we receive significant bids for the player, the club will take them into consideration. Us and the board know what the situation is, so we’re open to any solution,” he said.
