Bayern Munich are reporteldy plotting a January move to sign Manchester United target Milan Skriniar.

According to Tuttosport, as cited on Calciomercato, the defender is on the German club’s radar as they seek defensive reinforcement.

The Bundesliga champions are looking to strengthen in the new year after their poor start to the season.

In order to do so, they have shortlisted Skriniar who has been impressing at the San Siro this season.

Any deal to sign the Slovakian is likely to cost either Bayern or United around €80 million, with the player under contract in Italy until 2022.

Manchester United and Jose Mourinho, in particular, is keen to bring the player to the Premier League in the January window.

Mourinho has reportedly shortlisted two defenders; Inter’s Skriniar and Milan’s Alessio Romagnoli, with the Portuguese manager also keen to improve his backline.

Skriniar was linked with a host of clubs throughout the summer, but Inter managed to keep hold of the player following their return to the Champions League.
