With the season now coming towards its climax, Manchester United’s eyes will be drifting upon a huge summer transfer window.
Whoever the next permanent manager may be, they’ll need backing. Perhaps the top priority is signing a new centre-half. Now, in an exclusive from Team Talk, it is being reported that United, amongst other top European clubs, had scouts watching Milan Skriniar as Slovakia played Wales.
Skriniar, 24, has suddenly emerged as a top-class centre-half after some brilliant performances for Inter Milan over the last twelve months; and it’s pretty clear to see why United are doing extensive research on the centre-back.
United have centre-backs aplenty on their books, but none of them are at that elite level. Skriniar has the potential to become that, but it would be a gamble.
He’s never played in England, while he’s also nowhere near becoming the finished article. There’s every chance he could come in and take the Premier League by storm, but on the flip side, we could have another Eric Bailly or Victor Lindelof.
Whatever their strategy, United have to spend money on a new centre-back. Whether it’s Skriniar, Harry Maguire or someone else, it’s an area that the club desperately need to strengthen in. It’s as simple as that.
