Milinkovic-Savic will enter the final two years of his contract this summer, making him affordable to the top clubs around Europe. United are reportedly prepared to pay around £50million but Lazio are said to want closer to £65m.
Spurs and United are set for busy summer transfer windows, with new bosses hoping to stamp their mark on their respective squads. Conte replaced Nuno Espirito Santo in November and endured a slightly frustrating first dip into the market in January.
Spurs took until the final days of the window to make their two signings, although the additions of Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski have propelled the North Londoners into the top four. Conte might have expected a few more incomings though, particularly with Gio Lo Celso, Dele Alli and Tanguy Ndombele all leaving.
