Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Another day, another story linking Nikola Milenkovic with a move away from Fiorentina.

According to Calcio Mercato, the 23-year-old will be out of contract next year and he could leave the Viola in the summer.

Transfer: Club ready to accept £34million from Man United on one condition – Report

The Italian media outlet have claimed that the defender’s performances of late have been average and the Serie A side have so far failed to renew his deal.

Therefore, they are now evaluating the best possible option for the future of Milenkovic and he might be sold in the next transfer window.

Calcio Mercato state that in recent months, the likes of Inter Milan and AC Milan have followed the Serbian international but Man Utd are leading to secure his signing.

Few days back, Corriere Fionrentino (via Paisley Gates) revealed that the former Partizan defender has not paid any heed to the offers made by the Italian clubs because he wants to move to the Premier League.

The report indicated that the Florence based side are resigned to losing their first choice central defender and would demand a fee of at least 30 million euros (£25.6million) from his sale.

In the past two seasons, Solskjaer has mainly utilized Lindelof and Magurie in the central defense but the duo have not been able to form a rock solid and consistent partnership at the back. In turn, the Red Devils have suffered.

Club legend Gary Neville even pointed out that Maguire and Lindelof create problems for each other and the central defense at Old Trafford should be improved. Is Nikola Milenkovic good enough to strengthen the department? I do not think so. He has been average for Fiorentina this season and was poor in the recently held WC qualifiers as well.
