United consider move for Milinkovic-Savic as De Jong alternative

Manchester United are reportedly considering a move for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United have an eye on Milinkovic-Savic and the see the midfielder as an ideal alternative to Frenkie De Jong.

Savic, 27, only has a year left on his contract with the Serie A side and it is thought that the club would be willing to sell their star midfielder should they receive a substantial offer.

With only a month or so left in the summer transfer window, it’s no secret that United are in need of further signings to strengthen the midfield.

The signing of Christian Eriksen has gone a long way to helping matters as has the return of Donny van de Beek, but truth be told, we are still a player or two short.

Having flourished in Italy, the Serb is highly regarded as one of the finest midfielders in Serie A and may be an option to strengthen our midfield.

United have been linked with Milinkovic-Savic in the past — only for nothing to materialise.
