#5 The Milinkovic-Savic debate
Jose Mourinho made it absolutely clear this season that he needed a midfielder that can control the centre of the pitch with his commanding presence. While Michael Carrick may not have been considered in a very high regard during his career, his absence in Manchester United’s midfield has left a gaping hole - and a late epiphany about his importance - which no one has filled yet.
As a result, United have been linked with a plethora of midfielders and one of the most frequently connected to them is Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. After finishing a great season with Lazio, the midfielder is being pursued by the Theatre of Dreams and according to Il Bianconero, Manchester United have seen their bid for the Serbian rejected by the Italian outfit.
The report adds that the first assault for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s signature was made by the Red Devils with a €91 million + €15 million add-ons + 10% windfall from future sale. Lazio have, however, rejected this bid as perhaps they want more for him.
This might sound like a bad news for the United fans but it doesn’t end here. According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, even Juventus have made a bid for him, opening with a €80 million offer for the Serbian.
Lazio have, obviously, rejected that offer as they seek to fetch at least €120-130 from his sale. They also add that Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United are the other two clubs vying for his coveted signature.
