Manchester United have been given the green light to move for Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic after Juventus pulled out of the race to sign the midfielder, according to Tuttosport.
It has been previously said that the club views Milinkovic-Savic, who enjoyed an excellent 2017/18 campaign, as an ideal fit for their quest to sign a young box-to-box midfielder.
However, his £100 million valuation is considered too high by United. That lead to Juventus emerging as the favourites to sign him, with the Serbia international open to the prospect.
But according to Italian media outlet Tuttosport, Juventus have pulled out from the deal after being told they would have to shell out around €150 million to sign him this summer, handing United one last opportunity to swoop in.
Marouane Fellaini’s contract extension may well have ended United’s pursuit for a new midfielder, which would aggravate fans even more.
If the player wants to move from Lazio this summer and throws up a tantrum about the situation, the Serie A club may be forced into lowering their demands. That could see United and Juventus come alive again.
