Man Utd set to revive Milinkovic-Savic transfer in bid to finally land long-term target and Lazio midfielder


MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly once again set to attempt to lure Sergej Milinkovic-Savic away from Lazio.

The Red Devils are long-term admirers of the Serbian midfielder having first been linked with a move to sign him in 2018.

But the 27-year-old star has been constantly priced out of a move by Lazio president Claudio Lotito, who has been demanding at least £100million for him.

However, in a boost for the Red Devils, the Rome outfit could now be prepared to part ways with the player in a cut-price deal.

Lazio currently sit seventh in the Serie A table and are in danger of missing out on competing in Europe next term.

And it has been claimed that the Stadio Olimpico outfit could need a big sale in order to help balance the books.

Milinkovic-Savic also has just two years left on his contract and it remains to be seen whether he will extend his stay.

Taking that into consideration, Il Tempo has claimed that Lazio would be prepared to sell the player should they receive a fee in the region of £59m.

The Italian news outlet states that United could again make a move to bring the ex-Genk ace to Old Trafford.

Though it has been said that Paris Saint-Germain are also keeping tabs on his situation ahead of the upcoming transfer window.


Milinkovic-Savic has reportedly been eyed up as a possible replacement for Paul Pogba, who looks set to depart the Theatre of Dreams on a free transfer this summer.

It has even been suggested that the 2019 Coppa Italia winner has been identified as a cheaper alternative to West Ham’s Declan Rice.

Though there have been rumours that Milinkovic-Savic has his heart set on a switch to sign for Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Despite Lazio struggling this term, the midfielder has once again put in a number of dazzling displays.

He has featured in 39 games in all competitions – chipping in with eight goals and ten assists.
