Inter Milan ‘could make ambitious bid for Sergio Aguero as Manchester City eye Milan Skriniar’… but Real Madrid and Barcelona also want the defender
- Inter Milan are reportedly open to selling star defender Milan Skriniar this year
- Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid are all interested in the Slovakian
- Inter may attempt to bring Sergio Aguero to the San Siro as part of the deal
- Italian giants are prepared to lose Lautaro Martinez to Barcelona this summer
The Italian outlet claim that Inter are considering selling their star central defender when the transfer window reopens, with City among the clubs interested.
However, instead of a straight cash deal, Antonio Conte may make an ambitious effort to seal the ‘dream’ signing of Aguero in the process.

Pep Guardiola is keen to revamp his defensive options this summer after losing Vincent Kompany last year and worries over the form and fitness of John Stones persisting.
But whether City’s boss would consider allowing his star striker to move to Italy as part of the deal remains to be seen.
Aguero, who has scored 16 Premier League goals this season, is out of contract next summer and has spoken openly about his desire to finish his career in Argentina.
Inter are on the lookout for a new striker to replace Aguero’s international team-mate Lautaro Martinez, who remains one of Barcelona’s top transfer targets.

The Spanish giants could also complicate a deal for Skriniar to join City as they are said to be interested in a move for the Slovakian defender.
Barca’s bitter rivals, Real Madrid, are also said to have asked about the 25-year-old’s availability, and even suggested a swap deal involving Achraf Hakimi.
The right back, who has spent the last two years on loan from Real at Borussia Dortmund, is reportedly set to join Inter in a £36.6million deal this week.
