The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are loving life at the moment…
It has been an incredible start to the season for the Red Devils, currently riding high at the top of the Premier League table.
Man City have since caught up with them and are going toe-to-toe with their Manchester rivals, but if this situation had been offered at the start of the season, the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern would have been more than happy to oblige.
Jose Mourinho, though, doesn’t appear completely happy with his playing squad, and according to Italian outlet Calcio Mercato, he is ‘in love’ with a certain Serie A midfielder.
Calcio Mercato report that Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is attracting the interest of Mourinho, and scouts have already been dispatched to watch him in action in recent weeks. A move could, reportedly, be made at the end of the season should Mourinho decide to follow up on his interest.
A talented midfielder, he has impressed in Serie A this season. At 22-years-old, he’s certainly an option for the future, but his recent displays have proven that he’s good enough to step into any number of Europe’s top sides.
He has made 4 appearances so far this season, picking up one Man of the Match award in the process. He has also scored 1 goal.
Man Utd aren’t short of midfield options, but with so many competitions on the horizon, there is a clear need for more depth in the team as a whole. Able to play in both attacking midfield and slightly deeper, he would be an excellent option for Mourinho to have.
Michael Carrick isn’t getting any younger, and so a replacement will be needed sooner rather than later. At 22-years-old, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic could be the perfect option.
