Manchester United: Red Devils named in Sasa Lukic transfer race

Manchester United: Red Devils named in Sasa Lukic transfer race - Manchester United News

Manchester United have been named alongside Premier League rivals Leeds United in the race to sign Torino midfielder Sasa Lukic.

The Lowdown: Lukic profiled

Lukic is primarily a central midfielder but can also play in more defensive or advanced midfield roles if required. The 26-year-old, who has been labelled ‘outstanding’ by journalist Josh Bunting, has been away with Serbia at the World Cup in Qatar, starting their first two Group G games.

He will soon be entering the final 18 months of his Torino contract, and it seems as if a move to Old Trafford could be a possibility.

The Latest: Man United linked with Lukic

Sport Witness relayed an update from Torino Granata regarding Lukic on Thursday in which the Red Devils were named.

They claimed that Manchester United are interested in the midfielder, who has been followed by domestic rivals Leeds during the World Cup.

The Verdict: Alongside Gakpo?

Leeds were keen to sign Cody Gakpo in the summer, but it seems as if the Netherlands star could soon be moving to Old Trafford after an ‘agreement in principle’ was reached.

Therefore, the Red Devils could look to pip their rivals to another possible signing in Lukic, who may be seen as a shrewd addition to Erik ten Hag’s midfield.

First up in this Man United World Cup quiz, how many United players are in England’s squad for Qatar 2022?

You could argue that United need more midfield reinforcements, with only two defensive, two central and two attacking midfielders on the books at this moment in time, so the versatile Lukic could bolster all three of those areas at Old Trafford.
