Now the fact of the matter is that neither the player nor the club are pushing for the move. But given that Tuchel is interested, Roman Abramovich will be ready to support it. Moreover, the financial situation of the Italian club isn’t in great shape.

Hence Chelsea could try their luck at getting Milan Skrniar. The net value for the defender is estimated to be around €50 million. This means any club who want to get Skrniar will have to pay this amount.

Tuchel to face competition from Manchester United:

Milan Skrniar is on the radar of Manchester United.

News has arised that Manchester United are demanding that Inter Milan pay up the remaining £43 million for striker Romelu Lukaku or give up Argentine international Lautaro Martinez or Milan Skrniar in return.

Romelu Lukaku arrived at Inter Milan in 2019 and since then has been terrific for Italians. United with Antonio Conte who wanted Lukaku since his Chelsea days; Lukaku has enjoyed his time at Inter Milan.

The Italian giants acquired Romelu Lukaku in the summer of 2019 for a huge fee of £75 million. Now they left to pay the rest of the amount. It also includes a bonus payment of £4.32 million as well for Lukaku.

Now the terms of the contract state that for any missed payment Inter Milan will have to pay the rest of the amount in a single full installment. Thereby this has increased pressure on the club’s finances.

Manchester United are looking at this opportunity to grab any one of the two important players. It’s Milan Skrniar or Lautaro Martinez in an exchange deal. Inter are currently on the top of Serie A and it’s majorly due to these players.

Milan Skrniar is a skillful defender who could be a valuable addition to United’s backline. Additionally, Lautaro Martinez will also be a great addition to their attacking department.
