Jose Mourinho will attend Serbia’s UEFA Nations League game with Montenegro to reportedly scout two players.

Serbia manager Mladen Krstajic has revealed that Mourinho will watch their game alongside injured Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic.

“Nemanja Matic did not come to Belgrade for the camp because he has a problem with his back,” he said.

“Matic will most likely come to Podgorica to see us because his boss is coming.”

According to reports, Mourinho will be watching to scout two potential United targets.

Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinković-Savić is expected to feature for Krstajic’s side in Thursday’s game, and has long been courted by United.

Mourinho has clearly been watching loads of Football Italia, because his obsession with Serie A means he will also keep a close eye on Fiorentina centre-half Nikola Milenkovic.

The 20-year-old should start at the heart of defence against Montenegro, and would be a cheaper alternative to Mourinho’s two primary January targets.
