Manchester United shows strong interest in £58m rated Serie A midfielder

Manchester United boss responds to Martial transfer request after agent's comments

Manchester United have set their sights on Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. With their midfield in desperate need of an upgrade in personnel and the uncertainty over Paul Pogba’s future still looming, the Red Devils are once again after the Serbian midfielder, according to reports.

disappointing run of games in the early part of the season saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer getting sacked. German manager Ralf Rangnick was brought in to stabilise the team, which was falling off the league table. However, the results have not been up to the standard, with United’s midfield being the problematic area.

The Red Devils are looking for a permanent solution to their midfield problems, and are going after one of their previous targets. According to Italian news outlet Calciomercato (via Daily Mail), Manchester United are leading the race to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, with Italian giants Juventus also vying for their signature.

🚨 Manchester United are chasing the signature of Serbia midfielder Sergej Milinković-Savić. The Lazio star has been directly involved in 14 goals in 19 Serie A games this season.

The English giants were very close to signing the 26-year-old back in 2019, but the deal failed to materialise. However, now the reports suggest that United have shown concrete interest to finally bring the midfielder to Old Trafford in the summer.

The Calciomercato report claims Lazio would want £58million (€70m) to let the Lazio midfielder join Rangnick’s team. Although the Serbian international has great admirers at Juventus, the English club is reportedly ahead at the moment to sign the player.
