Inter Milan remain persistent in knocking back bids for Milan Skriniar from two English giants.
The Slovakian international moved to San Siro at the start of the previous season from Sampdoria, and took no time to establish himself in the first team at Inter.
He started every league game for the Italian giants, scoring four goals in the process and showing great maturity, which is why he is now attracting interest from all over Europe.
He is still 23, and is a potential superstar in the world of football, which has led to clubs likes Man Utd and Man City expressing their interest in his services.
The Red Devils signed Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof in the last two summer transfer windows, and have Phil Jones and Chris Smalling in their ranks.

None of the last three names have been impressive at Old Trafford, and Jose Mourinho is desperate for another top class CB, and has thus identified Skriniar as the right man.
They are also set to let the likes of Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind leave, making the Inter Milan man an absolute necessity for the side.
Pep Guardiola, on the other hand, brought Aymeric Laporte into his side in January, but is slowly losing Vincent Kompany from the first team.
The Belgian international, who is among the best in the league at the moment, is injury prone, and does not have too many years at his best as a footballer. They need a long-term replacement and Skriniar, with his composure on the ball, is a superb fit for the Citizens.
However, as per Corriere dello Sport, Inter Milan are not interested in selling him at any price, and have ‘instantly knocked back’ bids worth £53m from both clubs.
Finishing fourth in Serie A last season, Inter Milan are back in Europe for next season, and want the 23-year old to be a part of their campaign.
