If move for Saul fails, Manchester City must target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic instead

Manchester City remain in contention to complete a quadruple trophy haul this season, despite how likely or unlikely that may be. 

What is for certain is that with Pep Guardiola in charge, anything is possible and the crowd at the Etihad Stadium are preparing once again to witness some more success this season.

The Citizens already have a highly competitive squad but they cannot afford to let their domestic and European rivals to better themselves whilst they don’t improve.

Reports (from the Mirror) are already suggesting that Manchester City will look to Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez in the summer but with that being such an audacious move, the Citizens must have a back-up option in mind.

Certainly similar in quality, Man City could look at Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as another option to replace Fernandinho.

Milinkovic-Savic, (who is valued at £67.5 million on Transfermarkt) is a terrific tough midfielder that would be a stern addition to City’s midfield dynamite.

Full of brute force and competitiveness, Milinkovic-Savic has asserted himself as a top target for many clubs around Europe, of which Man City could be another on that list.

The Serbian international can perform an attacking or defensive midfield role, giving Pep the opportunity to find what position suits the 23-year-old best.

With four goals and an assist in the 27 appearances he has made so far this season, Milinkovic-Savic has gone some way to showing just why he should be an option for Manchester City.

Alongside the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva, the Citizens would certainly have the right balance and would look even more of a force.

It’s safe to say that the capture of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic would transform City and could even be seen as a better option to Saul Niguez.
