Man Utd ‘one step away’ from signing €75m Fernandes alternative

Manchester United are ‘one step away’ from signing Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio.

Milinovic-Savic has re-emerged as a United target after being heavily linked to the club last summer.

Jose Mourinho even went as far as to personally scout the midfielder during his time as manager, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revisiting the possibility of signing him.

The club have been unable to strike a deal for Bruno Fernandes of Sporting Lisbon as yet, and have thus identified Milinkovic-Savic as a viable alternative.

SportMediaSet say the deal is ‘one step away’ from completion, with Lazio president Claudio Lotito ‘finally persuaded’ to sell ‘the most precious jewel’.

Gazzetta are ‘ready to put €75m euros on the plate’ for the 24-year-old – thank you to Sport Witness – but that Lotito ‘wants €120m’.
