#2 Milan Skriniar
A player really has got to have some special talent to be linked with Manchester United, Manchester City and even Real Madrid. Inter Milan's Milan Skriniar is one of such exceptionally gifted players, who just shines in his natural center-back position.
The 24-year-old had a very successful debut season with Nerazzurri, as his key defensive contributions and 4 goals saw Inter return to the UEFA Champions League after a hiatus of six seasons.
This season he was the mainstay of his club's defense that had the second best defensive record in the Serie A and yet again qualified for the Champions League.
Coming to his individual abilities, he is one of the best defenders in the world in one-on-one situations, has an imposing physical presence on the field and is quick with his feet, a quality that allows him to cover ground at crucial moments.
His excellent positioning and good use of the ball when in possession make him an invaluable asset to his club and national side as well. That's what will make him an ideal signing for Barcelona, who require a player just like him at the heart of their defense, who is calm and can create opportunities going forward with the ball.Published 22 Jun 2019, 19:30 IST
