According to Italian outlet Gazzetta Dello Sport, Manchester United are still keen on Serbian international Sergej Milinkovic-Savic…..Man Utd Renew Pursuit Of 26-Year-Old Serie A Midfielder
They were linked with the 26-year-old star heading into last summer’s transfer market. A year on, the Lazio midfielder still continues to capture the club’s fancy.
Seen as a direct replacement for Paul Pogba, the Red Devils’ interest in him is understandable considering the Frenchman’s situation.
His resurgence in form had seen rumours linking the Old Trafford outfit to Milinkovic-Savic go on the down-low.
United do have other positions to bolster but may be forced to look at the midfielder if Paul does leave.
They are however not the only club in the fray for the 26-year-old. Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are also keeping tabs on the star and could prove to be a hurdle in their efforts to sign him.
Milinkovic-Savic’s deal at Lazio runs until 2024 and the board are in no rush to sell him. Sergej himself recently revealed that his current focus is on staying put at I Biancocelesti.
For now, the interest in the player appears to be far from conclusive. Whether it will change developing on what Paul decides to do remains to be seen.
With seven goals and 10 assists in 35 matches this season, the 26-year-old is surely worth the hype. He has also won 21 caps for Serbia netting three goals.
