Avid fans of Manchester United Football Club will be familiar with ‘Agent P’ (Paul Pogba), with the Frenchman doing his best to try to persuade Antoine Griezmann to make the move to Old Trafford last summer.
This time around, step forward ‘Agent M’; aka Nemanja Matic. The Serbia international was involved in a brawl with pretty much the whole Costa Rica team in the dying embers of a World Cup match. Now, the midfielder has posted a photo of himself alongside a certain Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, with the caption ‘stronger together’….
For those who’ve been following the transfer window, you’ll know that Milinkovic-Savic has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer. The young Lazio man certainly looked at home alongside Matic in the midfield. Perhaps they’ll be looking to emulate that on club level.
Obviously, this is just a photo and there is no real reason to start jumping to conclusions. The chances are, this is just a harmless photo of the two lads sticking up for each other on international duty.
That didn’t stop some Red Devils fans from getting overly excited, though, as you can see from the tweets below:
" Siempre juntos, somos más fuertes".

I think we’d all love to see Milinkovic-Savic in Manchester United red, but now that a deal for Fred has been completed, I’m unsure as to whether Jose Mourinho will make his move for another central player. I guess you can never rule anything out, though.
