Premier league giant Manchester United seem extremely close to competing a sensational £110million double swoop to begin the January transfer window.
According to British media reports, Manchester United have taken a major step forward in
their winter chase of Inter Milan central defender Milan Skriniar ahead of a much anticipated £65million move
The Slovakia international defender is one of the best centre-backs across the continent of Europe and seems a necessary acquisition for the Red Devils, who have been given the all-clear to sign the defender as Serie A giant Inter Milan prepare to complete the signing of Diego Godin to replace the Slovakia international.
Milan Skriniar had been dragging on signing a fresh contract at the Italian club, forcing the San Siro giants to accept a bid froAndreasm Old Trafford, who are also in the market pursuing Porto youngster Eder Militao.
Valued at about £45m, the starlet has made a brilliant start to life in Europe this campaign after a summer transfer from South American club Sao Paolo.
La Liga giant and reigning Champions League and Club world cup winner Real Madrid are also after Eder Militao, but the Red Devils are highly determined to reinforce in defence this January transfer window and could be set to spend huge on two new centre-halfs.
The defensive duo would join United for a similar transfer fee to the amount the side recently tabled for Napoli central defender Kalidou Koulibaly , with a £95million bid turned down by the Serie A club.
This spending spree to reinforce their backline is possibly to be aided by disposal of team players like Matteo Darmian and Andreas Pereira while the Manchester club are also open to bids for struggling defenders like England international duo of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones.
Chile international forward and former Arsenal and Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez is thought to be in the plans of interim Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but the Red Devils hierarchy could also accept an offer for the South American flop if a tempting bid comes in.
