United “on pole” for Milinkovic-Savic

Manchester United lead the race for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to reports.

According to Italian outlet Il Messaggero, for Lazio to “open a new cycle’, they must “sacrifice” their star player next summer.

The club are reportedly hoping to raise in excess of £67million with the Serbian’s departure and would hope to reinvest that money in new players to freshen up Maurizio Sarri’s first-team squad.

United would face competition to secure the player’s signature, however, with the report adding that Juventus and Inter Milan “remain vigilant”.
