Manchester United made some excellent transfers over the summer, as Jose Mourinho continues to mould his squad into one that fits his style of play. Now, the agent of 22-year-old Sergey Milinkovic-Savic has claimed that both Manchester clubs have shown an interest in the player.
The central midfielder had a brilliant season in the Serie A for Lazio last year, and it comes as no surprise to me that interest in him has heightened. His agent, Mateja Kezman, has been speaking to the media about the teams who have taken a liking to his client.
Both Manchester clubs are mentioned, as are Real Madrid – which tells you everything you need to know about the insane amount of talent that this young man possesses.
‘There’s been a lot of interest from several clubs, such as those in Madrid, Manchester and Milan,’ Kezman told Radio CRC, as per the Metro.
‘But he wants to be happy, to play to keep growing and become one of the best in his role.’
‘It’s difficult to see him away from Lazio, where he has started the season very well, but I can’t rule out him leaving.’
‘If Milinkovic-Savic keeps this up, there will be plenty of contact from different clubs, like there was (in the summer transfer window).’
The Serbia star has the potential to become one of the most important players for any team in the world. However, United’s midfield is looking like it’s in the best shape it has ever been in for quite some time.
Mourinho is the master at identifying problems and fixing them, and over the last two years, the signings of both Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic have been brilliant for us. I’d love to see Milinkovic-Savic come in and be that final piece of the jigsaw, but it’d probably mean the end of Ander Herrera. As of right now, I’d choose the Basque-born midfielder every single time.
