Paris Saint-Germain make first move for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

According to Football Italia (h/t Daily Star), Paris Saint-Germain have made the first move for long-term Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Serbian has been one of Lazio’s best players as Simone Inzaghi’s side have mounted a spirited title challenge. The 25-year-old scored 5 goals and 7 assists in 31 appearances for the Italians before the season was suspended.

The player has been on United’s radar for a while now. PSG are now looking to get ahead of us by putting a €60million offer on the table.

According to the report, the bid is set to be rejected. Lazio want another €10million to be added to the original amount.

The Le Aquile sporting director Igli Tare had previously admitted that it is up to the Serbian international if he wants to stay in Rome. This suggests that the club won’t get in his way if he so chooses to leave. (h/t Daily Mail)

Originally valued at €100m, the coronavirus’ impact on the industry could see the midfielder’s value drop.

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

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.

He would make an excellent replacement for Paul Pogba if the Frenchman decides to move on this summer.
