Could Liverpool accidentally help Manchester United sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic?

  • I'm more Toure than Zidane- Milinkovic-Savic

Real Madrid are lining up a staggering €150 million bid to beat Manchester United in the race to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic since quite some time, and the midfielder has recently stated that he will decide on his future only after the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

With Real Madrid prepared to offer more money, Savic could well be on his way to the Los Blancos.

Fellaini's height and physicality are his biggest strengths, and United boss Jose Mourinho values such qualities in his players. Madrid, however, will have no problem in matching Milinkovic-Savic's evaluation.

However, United may be put off by the Serbia international's fee, with Lazio setting an asking price of £87.5million.


The Guardian reported this week that United's transfer deal for the Brazilian midfielder Fred is in the region of £52m and this could perhaps be an indication that United have already addressed their midfield issues without acquiring Milinkovic-Savic.

The Lazio midfielder has been linked with a move away from the Biancocelesti, particularly since they slipped out of the Champions League places on the final day of the Serie A season. Powerful in the air and composed on the ball, the 23-year-old likes to get forward.

Florentino Perez is set to make some big changes to the Real Madrid squad this summer, with the squad set to be overhauled.

The player, however, will be deciding his future only after getting done with Serbia's campaign at this year's World Cup.
