Milan Skriniar was solid against Barcelona

Milan Skriniar made the headlines for all the right reasons on Tuesday night after an incredible defensive performance in Inter’s Champions League draw against Barcelona at the San Siro.

Head coach Luciano Spalletti was quick to heap praise on the centre-back, who was crucial to a stout defence until Malcom broke the deadlock in the 83rd minute.

Skrinar had reportedly already drawn interest from the likes of Manchester United, Barca and Real Madrid.

And Spalletti insisted that the Slovak won’t leave Inter for less than €100m – before joking that he wouldn’t mind a €40m tip to go with it.

“How much is Skriniar worth? €100m,” said Spalletti after the game.

“If I were Barca, I’d offer €120m and I’d say, ‘€20m is tip’. If I were Real Madrid, I’d offer €140m, of which €40m is tip.”

Skriniar’s efforts were not in vain, as Mauro Icardi popped up soon after Malcom’s opener to rescue a point and keep Inter on track for the UCL’s Round of 16.

“We had character,” Spalletti added. “Mentally we were very good, we were always available. We deserved to score, because of the emotional reaction we had to going behind. It was a deserved goal because we were strong.”

ANTHONY MARTIAL

The French forward has emerged as a target for Inter Milan, the Mirror says. Martial is out of contract in the summer and has attracted a huge amount of interest, with Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio a long-term admirer. Just a few months ago it seemed like the former Monaco man may be set for a move away from Old Trafford, but now it looks like he could sign a one-year extension until 2020. The 22-year-old has enjoyed a lighting start to the new campaign, scoring five goals in his last four league matches.

LEON BAILEY

The Jamaican international has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea or Manchester United, according to Bild. The 21-year-old has established himself as one of the brightest stars in the Bundesliga and scored nine goals last campaign. However, he has found game time hard to come by this term, starting only five of the first 10 league matches. While Bailey only signed a new long-term deal in August, it is unlikely the club will allow the player to leave.

AARON WAN-BISSAKA

Manchester City and Everton have reportedly begun keeping tabs on the Crystal Palace starlet. The Daily Mirror says the 20-year-old has impressed the Sky Blues, who have made a number of discreet enquiries about the defender. The Toffees are understood to be eyeing the England U21 international as a long-term replacement for club captain Seamus Coleman, who turned 30 in October. Wan-Bissaka has made 20 appearances for the Eagles since being handed his first-team debut against Tottenham back in February.

RUBEN LOFTUS-CHEEK

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has blocked a move by West Ham to take the highly-rated midfielder on loan, the Daily Mirror reports. Loftus-Cheek is yet to start a league game this campaign and didn’t even make the England squad for last month’s Nations League matches against Croatia and Spain. The midfielder is wanted by Manuel Pellegrini in the January transfer window but Sarri has ruled out the 22-year-old from going anywhere this season. Newcastle and Wolves are also hunting for his signature.

DANNY WELBECK

The Arsenal striker is being eyed up by Crystal Palace, according to The Sun. The paper says the struggling side are weighing up a £10 million January bid for the 27-year-old, who is out of contract at the Emirates at the end of the season. Eagles boss Roy Hodgson is said to be keen on the England international to help bring the goals his team desperately needs. Welbeck has only scored 16 goals in his 88 appearances since joining the Gunners from Manchester United in 2014.
