Manchester United are reportedly preparing a £72m bid for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Sky in Italy, as quoted by Sky Sports, say that the Reds are targeting the 24-year-old midfielder, who wants to leave but will not force a move this summer.
Lazio are said to be holding out for around £90m for their star midfielder, but this has not put United off pursuing the Serbian international.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer requires two midfield additions this summer following the departures of Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini; Milinkovic-Savic would be a fantastic signing to fill the gap left in midfield given his strong all round game.
Milinkovic-Savic was named the best midfielder in the Serie A last season and is the type of signing United should be looking for to immediately improve the team for next season.
If reports of United’s interest in the midfielder are true, we hope the Reds can secure a deal with Lazio said to be be open to negotiations for their star midfielder.
#Lazio filo diretto con il @ManUtd per #MilinkovicSavic. Non ancora una proposta ufficiale ma il Manchester si è reso disponibile a sborsare 80 milioni. Lotito ne chiede almeno 100. @OfficialSSLazio @SkySport
