Barcelona’s transfer strategy in the summer of 2023 is more or less an open book. As quoted by their sporting director Mateu Alemany, the team will look to acquire those whose contracts end next year and this makes Inter’s visit to Spotify Camp Nou even more interesting.

Apart from the very obvious aim of qualifying for the Round of 16 of the competition, the Catalan management is expected to keep a keen eye on a certain Milan Skriniar. 

As reported by Spanish news outlet Mundo Deportivo, the 27-year-old is someone who fits perfectly in Barcelona’s scheme of things. To begin with, his current deal expires at the end of the season and although the Serie A giants have already offered him a new deal, he is expected to explore other avenues.

In that regard, Skriniar, who joined Inter in 2017, has a renewal offer on the table from Inter reported to be around €6 million per season. The player, however, wants to try something new, meaning that the possibility of his departure next year is extremely high.

For now, Barcelona haven’t launched a formal approach but it must be noted that by January, the player will be allowed to sign a pre-contract agreement with any team outside Italy so one can expect the news to gather a fair amount of steam by then.

Interestingly enough, MD claims that Skriniar’s links with Barcelona are something new. Ever since his move to Inter, the 27-year-old has been continuously linked with a move to Barcelona but Inter’s high economic demands have put Barcelona off the door.

Furthermore, Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain tried acquiring his services in the summer this year, launching a reported €50 million bid, but Inter held on to their €80 million valuation of the player, forcing PSG to step away eventually.

By January, everything will change and if Inter fail to tie him down with a new deal, Barcelona will look to pounce on the opportunity. But before everything, the Slovanian must pass the test tonight.
