Manchester United need to improve their midfield department, they should sign someone, who can provide support to the attack by scoring and creating goals on regular basis.
One such player is Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and reports suggest that Man Utd want priority signing of the Lazio midfielder this summer.
According to Calcio Mercato, the Serbian international’s future is expected to be away from Lazio and he might end up leaving the club this summer.
The Italian source have claimed that the 26-year-old is on top of Man Utd’s wish list but he is a wanted man as the likes of PSG and Real Madrid are also interested in hiring his services.
As far as the midfield at Old Trafford is concerned, Pogba has been our most creative center midfielder this term. He has spent a lot of time out injured and directly contributed in 6 goals in 21 PL appearances.
Fred has so far played 25 games in the league and he is yet to provide an assist for Ole this term. The Brazilian scored his only goal of the campaign in the last league contest vs Spurs. Overall, he has made 40 appearances and directly contributed in just 2 goals.
Matic is mainly a defensive midfielder, the Serbian has mostly warmed the bench this season and so far, he has only provided 1 assist (no goal) in 30 appearances.
Last but not the least, Scott McTominay has so far scored 4 goals and provided 1 assist in 27 Premier League games in the current campaign.
So, the stats of our midfielders are just not good enough. As far as Milinkovic-Savic is concerned, the former Genk player has already netted 7 goals and provided 9 assists in the Serie A for Lazio. We need someone as creative as the Serbian in the center of the park.
However, he is not going to come for cheap. Calcio Mercato believes that Lazio will demand at least £69.5million to sell their prized asset. Should Man Utd meet the asking price to hire his services?
