With Chelsea and Manchester United both looking to challenge this season for the Premier League title, both clubs will no doubt be a tad disappointed to see Manchester City pulling somewhat clear at the top of the table.
The blue half of Manchester have been a cut above everyone else in all honesty, and both the Blues and the Red Devils have work to do if they are going to come close to them over the next few seasons.
However, the transfer window in January and in the summer of 2018 offer the chance for both clubs to delve into the transfer market and try and snap up some quality talent, and our landlord here in the Tavern thinks a certain midfielder over in Serie A could be the perfect signing for both clubs.
That player? Lazio midfield ace Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
The 22-year-old has been delivering some seriously impressive performances for the Rome club this term, and is developing into one of the top midfield players in the world with some of his standout performances in Serie A.
The Serbian is a powerhouse in the middle but is so much more than just strength and brawn in the middle of the park, in that he can play and has a great touch and vision for someone so young.
He looks like he could be ideal signing for both clubs, and there’s already been some mention of big money moves being made from some of Europe’s big hitters. With United and Chelsea wanting to compete among those big hitters, they would be wise to make a move for Milinkovic-Savic in the January window.
