Reports: Jose Mourinho Wants Midfield Star At Manchester United
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly eyeing one of the highest rated young midfielders in Europe ahead of next season, with Real Madrid and Manchester City also said to be after the player's signature.
With many reports suggesting there is a rift between Paul Pogba and Mourinho, and with Michael Carrick retiring at the end of the season, the Portuguese tactician recently admitted that United could be in the market for a midfielder next season.
According to the Sunday Mirror, that player is Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who has received much praise for his performances in Italy this season.
It has been claimed that it would take an £80 million (R1.29 billion) bid to lure the 22-year-old away from Lazio, although United might not want to spend that figure on a relatively unknown player.
Midfielder Marouane Fellaini is also yet to extend his deal with the Red Devils, which means he could also leave when the current campaign comes to an end.
Milinkovic-Savic, who joined Lazio in 2015, has scored 11 times and assisted a further six strikes in 33 matches so far this season.
The Serbian international has reportedly also been tracked by City, Real and Juventus in recent months.
