Fabrizio Romano has taken to Twitter to provide an update on Milan Skriniar’s future at Inter Milan amid reports that Tottenham Hotspur could be interested in the defender.

Tottenham have had a long-standing interest in the Slovakian captain with the club’s former transfer chief Steve Hitchen having been photographed alongside the player’s agent during a trip to Milan in 2020 (Gianluca Di Marzio) and more recently Calcio Mercato Web claimed last month that Spurs were mulling over whether to make a bid for the player before the January transfer window closes.

Romano has revealed that Paris Saint-Germain will land the central defender for free during the summer window and insisted that both Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United were never close to securing his signature.

The centre-back, who turns 28 in February, has been a mainstay in the Inter defence since joining from Sampdoria in 2017 but now looks to be heading to Ligue 1.

PSG were always going to be the frontrunners for Skriniar considering the salary they are able to offer him, especially considering he will be moving as a free agent when his contract expires this summer.

Tottenham desperately need central defensive reinforcements during the summer where the likes of Josko Gvardiol and Alessandro Bastoni will be two names who will appeal more to the north London faithful.
