Lazio ready to sell Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

According to Sky Sport Italia (h/t Daily Mail), Manchester United have received fresh hope in their efforts to sign Serbian superstar Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Lazio have confirmed that they are prepared to sell the midfielder if he decides to leave. Milinkovic-Savic is a target for various Premier League clubs including Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, and United.

“The player’s desire is crucial. Generally speaking, if a player thinks that their time is up and wants to go somewhere else, it shouldn’t be a problem.”

Tare’s comments are in stark contrast to Lazio’s previous stance that the player was not for sale. He is unlikely to come cheap though, with the Italians expecting at least £80m for the Serbian.

The Serbian has been one of Lazio’s best players as Simone Inzaghi’s side have mounted a spirited title challenge to dethrone Juventus. The 25-year-old scored five goals and seven assists in 31 appearances for the Italians before the season was suspended.

A powerhouse of a presence in the middle of the park, Savic is a complete midfielder who will be a commanding presence in the United midfield unit.

The Red Devils signed Bruno Fernandes in January and the Portuguese midfielder has hit the ground running. The addition of another world-class player alongside him will only make us stronger.
