Milinkovic-Savic back on Man Utd's radar

Manchester United are reportedly keeping tabs on Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic ahead of a potential summer move.

The Serbian has been a long-term target for the Mancunian giants, and he could leave his current club at the end of the campaign.

Lazio are looking into a long-term project under Maurizio Sarri. Milinkovic-Savic is likely to be sold to recoup transfer funds.

According to Il Messaggero, United are monitoring the player's situation, and could make a formal transfer approach next summer.

However, they may not be alone in the pursuit. Juventus and Real Madrid have also been linked with the 26-year-old box-to-box midfielder.

Milinkovic-Savic is seen by United as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba whose contract with the club expires in June 2022.

Pogba has yet to be convinced to extend his stay. There are claims that he has declined a £400,000-a-week offer and could leave for free.

Real Madrid and Juventus have also been credited with an interest in the Frenchman. The midfielder dreams of playing for Los Blancos.
