- Match Analysis
Manchester United are on the hunt for a box-to-box midfielder and Jose Mourinho has set his sights on Sergej Milinkovic-Savic according to reports by Calcio Mercato. The Lazio star is seen as the ideal replacement for Ander Herrera and Michael Carrick by the manager.
Lazio confirmed that they rejected a massive €70 million bid for him in the summer but have reportedly decided to cash-in on him soon. They have paid €9 million to Genk to cancel out their 50% sell-on clause in his contract and are now set to sell him for a huge price.
Signed for a mere €15 million, he’s gone on to become one of the most important members of the starting XI. He’s scored 6 goals in 19 games and has 3 assists as well.
Mourinho hopes to land him for €79 million soon. The 22-year-old is also looking for a move to Old Trafford and is set to force a move.
