Manchester United are leading the goal scoring chart in the Premier League but defensively, they have not been strong enough to seriously challenge for the title.
Only champions Liverpool, who have been dreadful since the turn of the year, have conceded more goals than the Red Devils in the top half of the table.
Lately, the central defensive partnership of Maguire and Lindelof has come under scrutiny. Club legend Gary Neville thinks that the duo create problems for each other.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Old Trafford outfit are one of the favorites to sign Serbian international Fiorentina star Nikola Milenkovic.
According to Fiorentina News, Man Utd are in the forefront to sign the 23-year-old center back but so are Liverpool, who need to strengthen their backline in the summer.
The Italian outlet have mentioned that the Viola would like to get a fee of 50 million euros from the sale of Milenkovic and Pezzella.
Earlier this month, La Repubblica (via Calcio Mercato) reported that the 20-time English champions are leading the race to lure the former Partizan player, who is valued at around £30.3million.
Also, renowned reporter, Angelo Mangiante also revealed that this summer, Man Utd would be the first choice for the 26-capped Serbian, whose contract with Fiorentina will expire in 2022.
Milenkovic has been on Man United’s radar for some time but this season, his performances have been below par just like the entire Fiorentina squad. The Italian side are currently 16th in the table and have won just 5 out of the 22 league fixtures thus far.
Man Utd need a leader to transform their defense, just like Van Dijk turned things around at the back Anfield. In your view, should Solskjaer splash £30.3million to sign Nikola Milenkovic?
