Manchester City have reportedly set aside £80m for Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar ahead of the summer transfer window.
Having failed to mount any sort of challenge for a third successive Premier League title, Pep Guardiola will make changes to his squad later in 2020.
According to El Desmarque, City are ready to do what it takes to edge out Real Madrid in the race to complete a deal for Skriniar.
The Slovakia international has made 93 starts in Serie A since moving to San Siro in 2017, helping Inter becoming the strongest challengers to multiple-time champions Juventus.
The report suggests that a deal between City and the Italian outfit is close to being agreed.
