Martin Skrtel Could Head to Man U or Man City

A battle could be about to break out in transfer talks over Slovak centre-back Martin Skrtel, with Manchester City and Manchester United both allegedly interested in snapping up the Liverpool player, according to an article in The Sun, UK.

With just two years left on his contract, the big teams could easily compensate for Skrtel’s early departure from Liverpool, but they hope to hold onto the 27-year old, who was voted Player of the Season at the club last year.

Skrtel, who is on his honeymoon just now, will discuss the options with his agent Karol Cstonto on his return. Cstonto said they will definitely have to speak to new boss of Liverpool, Brendan Rogers, before any commitments are made.

    15-20 million maybe? If these clubs, or others, have a serious interest, I’d be surprised if he stayed at Liverpool with them not in the CL. And I’d have thought he’d strengthen either. He’s better than City’s Lescott or United’s Evans. With Vidic having suspect fitness and Ferdinand getting on a bit AND having suspect fitness, he’d be an especially good addition for Utd. One question mark might surround the Liverpool-Utd relationship, of course.

    Skrtel-Hubocan is a CD partenership I’m looking fwd to for the national team. Weiss seemed to have a blind-spot concerning Hubocan, even though he’s a regular for Zenit, the Russian champions. With those two at the heart of defence, Sk wouldn’t give many goals away. Real question is how the hell they’re going to score any.

    He’s hot property and would be a great addition to any team.
    What is he valued at? does anyone know?
