The chances of Manchester City signing Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar are fading as he nears a fresh deal at San Siro.
Calcio Mercato claim that Skriniar has agreed to terms on a renewal with the Nerazzurri worth €3 million-per-year, with an official announcement due in the coming weeks.
Inter promised the Slovakian a worthwhile new wage packet last year, with a long list of would-be suitors lining up to try and tempt him away from Milan.
According to Calcio Mercato, the 24-year-old had been a top target for Man City, but Pep Guardiola has been dealt a major transfer blow by this latest news, with Inter prepared to retain his services for at least one more year.
The Premier League champions will be hoping to fortify a lot this summer, with the need for a new defender and midfielder having already been identified by club officials.
Skriniar would have been the ideal addition to Guardiola’s ranks, but he will now have to set his sights on other targets ahead of the summer window.
The Slovakia international is set to sign a new contract with Inter Milan, doubling his wages in the process.
