Last month, Calcio Mercato revealed that Nikola Milenkovic does not want to renew his contract with Fiorentina which will expire in 2022 and Manchester United are one of the sides who could offer him a lucrative deal to secure his signature.
More recently, reports suggest that the Red Devils can get the signing done if they pay the asking price of 25 million euros (£23million).
Transfer: Man Utd ready to battle to secure signing of £30million star – Report
The Serbian defender made his 100th appearance for the Viola at the weekend but as per La Nazione, his future remains up in the air.
The renowned Italian source have mentioned that for now the renewal talks are on hold till the summer and the player could depart in the upcoming winter transfer window.
It is further stated that Fiorentina would allow him to leave if the valuation of £23million is met and they will not drop the asking price.
Manchester United have currently got the second best attacking record in the Premier League but defensively, they have been highly inconsistent.
Solskjaer’s men have already let in 21 goals in 13 league outings and they have the worst record among the top 10 teams in the table.
One of the main reasons behind their poor record is that Lindelof and Maguire have not been able to form a solid central defensive partnership. The Norwegian manager has tried them for a considerable amount of time and I think it is time to bring in a new face to solve the dilemma.
23-year-old Milinekovic is at the right age, has ample experience under his belt but this season, even he has been out of form for the Fiorentina side, who are struggling in the bottom half of the table.
In your view, should Man Utd bid £23million to sign the 26-capped international from the Serie A side next month?
I don’t think that will happen, yes United need a central half but not milinekovic he is a good guy but we need someone like David Alaba or Ramos
