10:00am – Milan Skriniar plays down Barcelona link
Skriniar proved himself one of the best defensive talents in the world following a super first season with Inter Milan – so it’s only natural Barca are reportedly interested in him.
See what the man himself had to say about the situation here.
Skriniar was simply outstanding in his first season with Inter, forming a fine partnership with Brazil centre-back Miranda to help guide the Nerazzurri back into the Champions League.
Barca appear to be on the hunt for a new defender this summer – they have been strongly linked with Sevilla’s Clement Lenglet, as depth is thin behind Samuel Umtiti and Gerard Pique.
However Skriniar, who turned 23 in February, insists his head has not been turned by the Blaugrana so far.
“I am happy in Milan with Inter, nothing else matters,” the Slovakian told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “I don’t know what’s going on in the market and I won’t talk about it either.
”I don’t know whether Barcelona or other clubs want me. I am serious, none of it interests me.
”I only have Inter in my head.”
“I hope that Lionel Messi can win it,” Bartomeu told Antena 3.
“I hope that Leo Messi, the best player in history, can win it and make his dream come true.”
Jorge Sampaoli’s squad are currently training at Barcelona’s Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper training ground and will face Israel in their final warm-up game ahead of the World Cup.
They have been drawn in Group D alongside Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria.
