Manchester United are keen to bring in Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic this summer, according to reports.
This old chestnut is back. The Red Devils were last linked with the Serbian in October while Jose Mourinho was still in charge at Old Trafford with United ‘confident’ they could seal a January deal.
Nothing came of the reported interest in the end with the price demanded by Lazio at one point going above the €150m mark.
However, United‘s interest is apparently back with SportMediaSet (via Sport Witness) claiming that Lazio’s sporting director Iglo Tare has flown to London to ‘settle once and for all’ Milinkovic-Savic’s future.
There are other English clubs understood to be interested – although the report doesn’t state which ones – with Tare there to listen to proposals with United ‘particularly’ interested in Milinkovic-Savic.
The 24-year-old ‘doesn’t really want to stay’ with Serie A side Lazio and United see him as the perfect addition for their midfield ‘revolution’.
Lazio are understood to want €100m for Milinkovic-Savic – who they demanded more for a year ago – but could accept as little as €80m.
The report insinuates that Milinkovic-Savic could be brought in before United sell Paul Pogba after the Serbia international sold his apartment in Rome.
