Man United willing to sign exceptional £90million box-to-box midfielder

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic Lazio

According to Calciomercato, Manchester United could sign Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic if Paul Pogba leaves the club. Milinkovic-Savic had been linked with the Red Devils all summer as manager Jose Mourinho was looking to sign a midfield replacement for Michael Carrick. Marouane Fellaini’s future was uncertain too, but the Serbian international might now only be a direct replacement for Pogba.

The box-to-box midfielder re-joined United from Juventus in 2016 and has struggled for consistency. He’s been a regular under Mourinho, making 88 appearances in all competitions in the last two seasons, but his future has been uncertain this summer. Pogba had a fallout with Mourinho in 2017/18 and has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and Juventus, so United are preparing themselves should the 25-year-old depart Old Trafford for a second time.

Milinkovic-Savic would be a good option to replace the French international but he wouldn’t come cheap. The Lazio man, who has made 122 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A side, has a £90m asking price and nearly joined United earlier in the summer before the deal broke down. Nevertheless, Mourinho has retained an interest and could make an official bid before the transfer window closes in just over three weeks.


  1. Losing Pogba to have Milinkovic-Savic is not an improvement; it’s simply an exchange. If United want to improve, they need both. Would Xavi have been as good if he didn’t have Iniesta or vice-versa? If you want an impressive midfield, you don’t just fill it with one star.

  2. well said Eric, mourhino and United’ transfer managers have recently bin so confused expecially about which player to buy, I only hope some players will not have to tender transfer request out of frustration of having no good playing time at the end of the season

  3. Fully agree we need both then we may start to dominate mid field and other teams.

  4. Selling of pogba is not a solution but distorying of mutd club Jose muorihno need to be sack

  5. i don think is a gud deal am big fan of paul pogba bcos is acuraccy long pass our mildfied is oky player like fred,matic and pogba will need player like alex sandro,boatany and lozani or willian so dat will should compete 4 d leaque next season

  6. United still need quality in many areas of the pitch and it is no replacing one for another but to have both. Pogba and Savic could quite easily play together and offer a different dimension to United. Looking to spend big Mourinho and Woodward sees only Bale, no ambition there then. I would be bombarding Pogba with emails to tap up Mbappe. Now that would bring the dream back to the theatre instead of the snooze fest Mourinho serves up.

  7. i think selling pogba is not the solution at all if we want to compet 4 the title next season then we need to sale player like jones blind darmian and rashford so that we should bring player like perisic sandro or willian. player like jones is supposed to be name man u player i dont know why man u are keeping that player thank u

  8. We still need Pogba in our club. Why don’t u just sign Savic to join Pogba in the mid field instead of losing him. I wish the club signs for us Mbape to play for us on the right wing while Martial plays on the left wing, we would be deadly in the attack

  9. Pls Jose…. Don’t make pogba , martial an exit, rather u can also add William , milikov and Bale bcos Mpappe he cannot depart from PSG.bye

  10. The two players can play together off cause. I think its high time mourinho for strengthening order areas, like bringing in player like Lozano, verane and Lamar from Monaco.

  11. i think selling pogba is not the essue but people that are supposed to leave man u is jones darmian blind and lindelof even rashford, rashford is one of the most greedy player in the world and jones since man u buy that player everythings about him is a errow and injury so what kind of player is that?

  12. i think loosing pogba mns dat our will be lacking a player with accurate long passes and whose passes mostly feeds the wings and this could make gd coordination with bale and the guy coz bale is fast so united jxt retain pogba and get bale

  13. we need both players so that we can compete with M.City.Look at their midfield,We cannot match them if we lose our midfielders.We need an array of talented midfielders like Pogba and Savic,Perisic as well
