Manchester United And Liverpool Targets Not Considered Unavailable At Lazio

Tuesday, 12 Jun, 2018

Manchester United target and Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is reportedly the subject of a £150m bid being prepared by Real Madrid.

Real Madrid are not the only club looking to hijack United's interest in the midfielder. A final day defeat at the hands of Inter Milan also made sure that Lazio will not be featuring in the Champions League next season, thus diminishing the club's pull even further.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is reported to be signing for United this summer. Apart from his contribution in front of goal, the player also impressed with his defensive abilities, and his exploits have unsurprisingly caught the attention of some big clubs across Europe - the most prominent being Manchester United and Real Madrid.

It is believed the team behind that approach was either Juve or United, both of whom have been admirers of Milinkovic-Savic for a while.

Jose Mourinho continues to be trying to find one other midfielder regardless of agreeing a price for Brazil worldwide Fred, with Marouane Fellaini more likely to be off this summer season.

Florentino Perez is set to make some big changes to the Real Madrid squad this summer, with the squad set to be overhauled.

It is unlikely that Milinkovic-Savic's future will be sorted before the end of the FIFA World Cup, where he is one of the players to watch. Midfield is a priority as well, with the futures of Mateo Kovacic and Toni Kroos up in the air, and Luka Modric in the twilight years of his career.

In fact, according to reports in Il Messaggero Los Blancos are willing to offer a further £18 million in performance-related bonuses.
