Manchester United: Napoli prefer to sell Milinkovic-Savic to Red Devils

Manchester United: Napoli prefer to sell Milinkovic-Savic to Red Devils -Manchester United News

Reports have now suggested that Lazio prefer to sell star midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to Manchester United.

The Lowdown: £55m bid

Milinkovic-Savic appears to be a man in demand once again this summer after another starring campaign in Serie A. The central midfielder has contributed to 22 league goals in 36 games, with rumours claiming United have already tabled a £55m offer.

Erik ten Hag looks set to lose a number of midfielders ahead of his first season in charge at Old Trafford, with Paul Pogba the highest-profile potential departee.

The 27-year-old’s agent, Mateja Kezman, believes the Lazio star has ‘better quality than Pogba’, and a further update has now emerged on the Serbia international’s future.

The Latest: Positive news

Sports Witness relayed an update from Corriere dello Sport regarding Milinkovic-Savic on Wednesday. They claimed that Lazio prefer to sell Milinkovic-Savic to Manchester United or another club abroad instead of a direct rival like Inter Milan or Juventus.

Milinkovic-Savic ‘still has the same appeal’ at Manchester United despite the off-field changes, with his contract set to expire in 2024.

The Verdict: Get it done

Ten Hag may have just Scott McTominay, Fred and Bruno Fernandes as senior midfielders on the books, with Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata out of contract at the end of June and Nemanja Matic also set to leave.

Therefore, United could do with a number of midfield additions alongside a move for Frenkie de Jong, which they are working on.

Milinkovic-Savic has been a target since 2019 and has enjoyed the best season of his career when it comes to goals and assists combined, so he could be an ideal signing at a relatively cheap price compared to his £63m Transfermarkt valuation.
