Man United are once again being linked with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Red Devils find themselves with a huge summer just on the horizon.

Manchester United Football Club need to bring in a new manager and potentially, make fresh signings to complement whatever style the prospective boss wants to play.

With Paul Pogba’s exit all but confirmed, Manchester United simply have to bring in a new central midfielder of some sort ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Reports from Italy believe Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is still on United’s radar. I’ll be honest, it does feel like the Old Trafford club are linked with a move to bring in the Serbian almost every summer. Here we go again.

The claim comes from La Repubblica, with the translation via Sport Witness.

Apparently, his current side Lazio are using this international break to plan their transfer business.

Their strategy is based around Milinkovic-Savic, who has a contract until 2024. It’s feasible the midfielder could leave Lazio this summer, in order to maximise value in terms of transfer fee.

United and Paris Saint-Germain are named as the sides ‘most interested’ in signing the 27-year-old midfielder. La Repubblica state that United will need to find a replacement for the aforementioned Pogba and they view Milinkovic-Savic as the ‘natural heir’ to the Frenchman.

In terms of price tag, it’s thought that Lazio bosses will want £83m (€100m) to cash in on Milinkovic-Savic, but there’s no information in regards to what United or PSG are actually prepared to pay.

If we’re being honest about it, I’d be highly surprised if the Red Devils would be willing to spend that much. This is a player who is a relative unknown in terms of Premier League football – and it would be a huge roll of the dice to splash that sort of cash.

Would a Man United move for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic make sense? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
