Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s agent has rubbished ‘fake news’ suggesting that the player has been in talks with Man Utd and Paris Saint-Germain.
The Lazio standout has been linked with a move to the Red Devils. They are understood to value him at €70m.
The Serbia international has been with Lazio since 2017. He has consistently been their top performer both domestically and in Europe.
The 27-year-old has played 291 times for the Serie A club. He has been capped 30 times by Serbia since making his debut in 2017.
Former Chelsea player Mateja Kezman is Milinkovic-Savic’s agent. Foot01 have quoted him saying that they are ‘dealing with Manchester United and PSG’. It is also noted that the player ‘wants to go’ to United.
Kezman has now suggested that these quotes were fabricated and that it is “fake news”:
“It’s fake news. I have never given interviews in the last period, some journalists are really incredible,” Kezman said (quotes via MEN).
“I’m very angry, it is a lack of respect towards me, towards Sergej and Lazio.”
Elsewhere, Tony Cascarino has insisted that he “can see why Erik ten Hag may fancy” signing James Ward-Prowse when he arrives at Man Utd at the end of the season.
Southampton midfielder Ward-Prowse, who has ten goals and seven assists in all competitions this season, is one player who has been linked with a move to Man Utd this week and former Chelsea striker Cascarino thinks he would be a good signing.
“It was interesting to see James Ward-Prowse linked with a move to Manchester United,” Cascarino told The Times.
“At 27, the Southampton midfielder is entering the peak years of his career and if he is not content with being a one-club man, now may be the time for a big move.
“Ward-Prowse is so much more than simply a dead-ball expert (though there are few better than him from corners and free kicks). He is brilliant at keeping the ball and helping his team dictate play.
“I can see why Erik ten Hag may fancy him.”
