Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany, 32, is reportedly a target for Serie A giants Inter Milan.

talkSPORT claims the Belgium international is on the Nerazzurri radar with his contract expiring at the end of this season.

Despite an extension to his current deal being agreed with the Premier League champions, Kompany is a man in demand as Inter seek to end Juventus’ monopoly of Serie A.

However, with Slovakian international Milan Skriniar, 23, being watched by a number of Europe’s elite clubs, Manchester United included, there is a resignation among Inter’s hierarchy that they will lose their talented central defender and need the experience to replace him.

Miranda, 34, and Ranocchia, 30, are both out of contract next summer with the expectation that at least one of them will leave. Kompany ticks the boxes required if they are to compensate for the departures.

Money won’t be an issue with the club’s owners prepared to back the acquisition of players. Kompany can expect a competitive salary from the Italians although they cannot outpay Manchester City.

The bigger attraction for the Belgian may be the Belgian’s injury record. Several seasons spent under the surgeon’s knife as well as in the treatment room may cast a cloud over his future in England.

The lure of a less demanding future in Serie A may be too great to ignore.
