Manchester United are waiting to sell Paul Pogba before they confirm the signing of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to Italian agent Matteo Materazzi.
Pogba has had an inconsistent season at Old Trafford, while his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho reportedly strained after he was left on the bench for a number of high-profile matches.
And there are rumours that Pogba will leave this summer as Mourinho looks for a midfielder that will suit his style of play more than the France international.
Milinkovic-Savic is one player that the Red Devils have been linked with and Materazzi, brother of former Inter Milan defender Marco, thinks United have already sealed a deal for the Lazio star.
When asked if there is a risk Milinkovic-Savic would leave, Materazzi told French outlet RMC Sport:“In my opinion, he has already been sold for a few months to a team, Manchester United, which is waiting to sell a big [name], Pogba, to formalise the Serbian[’s arrival].
“Lazio is the team that worked better with the human material that was available: hats off to [Igli] Tare and [Simone] Inzaghi.”
