Manchester United are reportedly ready to pay a combined £120 million to wrap up a double transfer of midfielders.

While talks to bring Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk to United for around £50 million are progressing well, our pursuit for Lazio starlet Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is turning out a little more complicated.
According to the Daily Mail, United will only pay as much as £70 million for Milinkovic Savic, but the Serie A giants want £87.5 million, and with Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid still in the running they still might get that.
Whether or not United and Lazio can come to a compromise remains to be seen.
United manager Jose Mourinho is seemingly looking for two midfield additions this summer with Michael Carrick retired and Marouane Fellaini looking certain to leave as his contract is close to expiring.
