Man Utd interested in Lazio’s Milinkovic-Savic

Manchester United are interested in Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to reports in Italy.

Lazio’s president Claudio Lotito wants £90m for the 24-year-old and does not intend to lower the asking price.

It is understood Milinkovic-Savic, who signed a new deal with Lazio last October, would like to go but will not force a move and would be prepared to stay at Lazio for another year.

United have had a long-standing interest in Milinkovic-Savic, with Jose Mourinho personally scouting him during Serbia’s 2-0 win over Montenegro in October 2018.

Milinkovic-Savic has scored 31 goals in 138 appearances for Lazio since joining from Belgian side Genk in July 2014.

United have also renewed their interest in Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic, according to Sky in Italy.

Mourinho was interested in potentially adding the 21-year-old to his United squad last January, before being sacked by United in December.
