Manchester United are “returning to attack” for Lazio’s central midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, in line with a report in Italy.
Milinkovic-Savic has been a long-standing target, reported since Jose Mourinho’s days at Old Trafford. Serbian star Paul Pogba was thought to replace, however a move did not go off the ground.
In reality, Repubblica famous that United agreed a five-year deal with the player last year. The outlet claimed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side would pay Lazio an preliminary £ 75m, with one other £ 15m presumably going to the Serie A side in future bonuses. Nothing occurred.
And it appears unusual that the 26-year-old is back on the Old Trafford membership’s radar, particularly with Pogba hitting respectable kind.
The French midfielder was sensible within the victory over Tottenham. He set up Edinson Cavani’s disapproving goal, however finally received his assist when Mason Greenwood’s late strike started.
So with United having extra urgent points than a midfielder – specifically center back and center forward – the Milinkovic-Savic connection has come out of the blue.
Though Gazzetta dello Sport (by way of Sport Witness) made clear that many golf equipment had been renewing interest on Monday. And a kind of golf equipment is United. Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are the opposite big weapons talked about within the report.
The implication is that the Spanish-born enforcer will look to move forward this summer time if Lazio loses out on the Champions League. Lazio is sixth in Serie A, six points behind Atalanta in fourth place with a sport in hand.
The Rome membership’s possibilities of eating at Europe’s top table subsequent season look to be at stake and with the future of Milinkovic-Savic. The former Genk man has been in Italy since July 2015 and stays under contract till 2024.
Lazio actually has no obvious need to move the midfielder forward. Nonetheless, failure to finish within the Champions League locations might see the player on the lookout for one other challenge.
It might be the job of player agent Mateja Kezman – preserving the midfielder’s choices heat in entrance of the summer time switch window.
It’s unclear whether or not United would have an interest or not. However a lot will in all probability rely on the future of Pogba, whose agent made big noises a few switch earlier within the season.
