Manchester United are planning big moves to resolve their midfield crisis this summer, with a highly-rated Serie A star on the radar.
The Red Devils are likely to sign Erik Ten Hag next week and the Dutchman will need reinforcements in midfield. The position has become an issue for the club, with Scott McTominay and Fred the first-choice pairing under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and current caretaker Ralf Rangnick.
Ten Hag can look to shake things up. Paul Pogba is also leaving, possibly back to Juventus, from whom he signed in 2016, and United could recruit from Italy in turn.
the Republic (via LazioNews24) claims that United are looking to bring Serbian star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to the club after years of rumors linking the Lazio star with a transfer to Old Trafford.
Manager Maurizio Sarri would apparently be in favor of a rebuild of his own, which the midfielder’s sale could facilitate, with United having to pay around £58m. With Edinson Cavani set to depart on a free transfer at the end of the current campaign, Milinkovic-Savic would even get his first-choice team number, number 21.
PSG are also rumored to be looking at a move for the 27-year-old, represented by former Chelsea striker Mateja Kezman.
Milinkovic-Savic is valued at around £63m per Transfermarkt.
