Manchester United 'interested in Sergej Milinkovic-Savic transfer' with Lazio midfielder long-term target
MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly 'lurking' around Lazio midfielder Sergej MIlinkovic-Savic amid uncertainty surrounding his future.
The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from the Rome outfit, with the Red Devils tipped to bring him to Old Trafford.
Milinkovic-Savic has been in fine form this season – chipping in with five goals and as many assists in 23 games in all competitions.
But despite being tied down at the Stadio Olimpico until 2024, it has been suggested that the Serbia international is seeking a new challenge next summer.
According to Il Messaggero, the former Genk star is looking to depart the club at the end of the term.
The Italian news outlet claims that United are monitoring his situation, with Milinkovic-Savic seen as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba.
Pogba has just over six months left on his contract at Old Trafford, and it remains to be seen whether he will extend his stay.
And the Rome-based newspaper has also declared that Real Madrid and Juventus are eyeing up a swoop to sign the 2019 Coppa Italia winner.
