Manchester United continue to be linked with Nikola Milenkovic and the latest reports suggest that the Red Devils are ready to move in to sign the central defender.
According to La Nazione (via Sport Witness), Man United are ready to attack to lure the Serbian international, who could leave Fiorentina in the upcoming winter transfer window.
The Italian outlet have mentioned that even Spurs are prepared to move in to hire the services of the 23-year-old star, whose current contract with the Viola will expire in 2022.
La Nazione claim that the Old Trafford outfit have been interested in signing the ex Partizan defender for some time, even when Mourinho was in charge and now Jose wants him at the north London club.
Furthermore, it is claimed that no direct offer has been made as yet but the Premier League clubs have contacted the player’s agent to make it clear that they want him. Fiorentina would agree to sell him for a fee of 25 million euros (£22.5million).
Man United have already conceded 14 goals in the first 8 Premier League fixtures this term and have so far kept just a single clean sheet (0-0 vs Chelsea at Old Trafford).
Our skipper, Harry Maguire, has not been able to transform the back-line since moving to the club last year. Moreover, we do not have a consistent partner for the England international as well.
Hence, a quality center half should be lured in the next transfer window and in all fairness, £22.5million is not a very high fee for Milenkovic, who is heading into his peak years. What do you think?
