Mourinho plots £80m move for City and Madrid target


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly plotting a £80m move for Real Madrid and Manchester City target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Serbia international Milinkovic-Savic was strongly linked with a move to the Premier League during the January transfer window with both United and City interested in securing his services.

The 22-year-old is enjoying a fine season for Lazio. The Spanish reports say Real Madrid have also identified him as a target ahead of the summer.

The Daily Mirror claim United sent scouts to Rome on Thursday to get another glimpse of Milinkovic-Savic. But the midfielder was rested in the Europa League win over Steaua Bucharest.

Mourinho is looking at midfield options in the market with Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini both set to leave Manchester United at the end of the season.

Milinkovic-Savic said last month that his focus was entirely on the rest of the season and his performances for Lazio.

“I am focused only on Lazio,” he told Novosti. “This season, Serie A has improved significantly.

“As a club, we have a clear goal of a top four position, because that gives qualification to the Champions League from next season. That is a really big challenge.

“I am not thinking about leaving Lazio because I am currently very happy in Rome.”
