Former Man Utd player not convinced by Milinkovic-Savic, despite club interested in £87.5m star

Henrik Larsson has admitted that he isn’t sure whether Sergej Milinkovic-Savic would be good enough for Manchester United.

The 23-year-old midfielder has been strongly linked with a transfer from Lazio to United all summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his squad ahead of his third season in charge of the club. 

The young Lazio star is also said to be attracting interest from a host of other top European clubs, such as Juventus, Real Madrid, and most recently Barcelona.

It remains to be seen whether United will be able to complete a deal for the Serbia international, who is currently on duty with his country at the World Cup.

However, Larsson, who spent a short spell on loan at United in 2007, has not been too impressed by what he saw from him and played down his impact during the first half of Serbia’s win over Costa Rica.

Speaking to ITV Sport, as per The Sport Review, Larsson said: “It’s so hard to say [if he has the talent to play for United].

“I don’t feel that he’s done that much in the game so far. He’s done a few interesting things, but not really made a mark in my sense.

“Costa Rica are not giving him the space to drop down where he really wants to play.”

United are in the transfer market for a third summer signing after completing a deal for right-back Diogo Dalot, whereas Brazil midfielder Fred is waiting on a work permit.
