‘Complete midfielder’: Pundit heaps praise on Lazio star as Man Utd prepare £72m offer

Sky Sports reporter and pundit Anton Toloui has claimed he has not seen a high profile midfielder ‘more suited to the Premier League’ than Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Serbian international is said to be on Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s radar this summer and Sky Sports are reporting that the Reds are ready to offer £72m to sign the midfielder.

Lazio are said to be holding out for closer to £90m for their star man, who was voted best midfielder in the Serie A last season.

Toloui heaps praise on the 24-year-old below, suggesting he would be perfect for United next season. He points to the player’s physical attributes as well as his excellent passing capabilities.

Solskjaer still needs two midfielders this summer following the exit of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera, and Milinkovic-Savic would be the perfect start. The Serbian has the all round game suited to the Premier League and would instantly improve United’s midfield, unlike a more youthful addition like Sean Longstaff from Newcastle who still needs time to develop having had little first-team experience.
