Boehly and Chelsea ‘will be given chance’ to sign world class SerieA star for absolute bargain

There has been some media reports which have claimed that Inter Milan defender and long-term Chelsea target Milan Skriniar is open to leaving the Italian giants in the January window.

Chelsea spent a whole load of money in the transfer window adding players to that back-line that would replace a number of stars that departed Stamford Bridge over the summer

However – with rumours in the media circulating that Thiago Silva may be open to leaving the club at the end of the season on a free – it is believed that an immediate replacement will need to be signed by Graham Potter

Skriniar is a player that Chelsea have been linked with for a number of transfer windows – but have never been able to get a deal done as Milan had no intention of letting him depart the club

However – with his contract expiring at the end of the current season – it has been claimed on CalcioMercato that he is now open to leaving the club – and Milan are open to getting a deal done in the January window

And if you believe the words of Reporter Iomie Stanley – he would be a bargain buy for Chelsea.

What has he said?

He told IcFootballnews: ‘ Skriniar has been at the very highest level of the game for some time now – he really is a classy defender.

‘He may not be the quickest or the strangest of defenders – but he has proven over the seasons that he is able to compete with the very best strikers in the game

‘It would normally take around £60 million to sign the defender – so with his contract coming to an end – Chelsea could even get him for as little as £15 million.

‘Barcelona are also interested in Skriniar so it will not be easy for Chelsea to sign him – but they have the funds to compete with the Spanish giants if they truly want a world class defender to replace the ageing Thiago Silva.’
