Manchester United have reportedly made a €60m offer to Lazio for midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, a player also wanted by Juventus.
The Red Devils are likely on the hunt for a new central midfielder knowing that Paul Pogba is set to leave the club after a disappointing six-year spell at Old Trafford, and while we may well be a potential destination for our former star, we think we’re keeping our options open.
Milinkovic-Savic has been on our wishlist for some time with Lazio having already ruled us out of such a move, but recent reports have claimed they may be willing to cash in on his signature to bolster their transfer budget . to allow manager Maurizio Sarri to build his own team that lives up to his philosophy.
Man United would now have initiated the procedure by proposing an offer of around 60 million euros, TuttoJuve quote La Repubblica as saying, an offer deemed insufficient for the Laziali to accept, but with months until the transfer window opens, this opening offer could well be a signal of intent.
We may have to decide quickly whether we’re willing to pay top dollar to bring SMS to Turin or risk missing out on his signing, and I think we may have to look elsewhere.
Should we make the Serb a priority recruit this summer?
