Man Utd told £87million would get signing done – Deal was very close last year

Two days back, we covered a story (via Foot Mercato) claiming that Manchester United are swiftly moving to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the summer transfer window.

Today, an update has been provided by Corriere dello Sport regarding the price tag of the Lazio midfielder.

Transfer: Man Utd could launch offer to finally sign £90million forward – Face competition

The well-known Italian source have claimed that Man Utd have sights on signing the Serbian midfielder and like last summer, Lotito has slapped a price tag of 100 million euros (£87million) on his prized asset and would not offer any discount even this time.

Last year, the deal came very close to completion. CdS report that the Red Devils agreed personal terms with the player’s agent, Kezman, and offered a fee worth 90 million euros to Lazio. However, the deal collapsed because the PL giants failed to sell Pogba to Real Madrid and instead spent 87 million euros to sign Harry Maguire when Eric Bailly was ruled out with a long term knee injury.

Can we get his signing done this year? Only time will tell.

In our previous post on the subject (link provided above), we have shed light on why Pogba must be sold and why the central midfield, which has not been improved in the past few transfer windows, must be strengthened this time around.

Milinkovic-Savic has proved his worth in Italy. We need to sign quality players to have a strong chance of challenging Man City and Liverpool for the Premier League title next season. The 25-year-old star, who has been one of the best players in the Serie A this term, would be a top signing.

If he does end up moving to Man Utd then I’d like to seen him partner Scott McTominay in the center of the park behind our main attacking midfielder, Bruno Fernandes.
