Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has assured he is entirely focused on Lazio despite persistent rumours about his future.

Paul Pogba has been linked with a move to Barcelona - but who could replace him at Man Utd?

Calciomercato are reporting today that United are set to make the Lazio midfielder their number one target with a bid of an eye watering £138m being suggested as the fee needed to prize the Serbian away from the Italian capital. Manager Jose Mourinho has been left frustrated with the lack of signings and is desperate to add more players to his roster before the transfer window closes.

Fellow Italian side Milan are rumoured to have approached Lazio too but their offer for the 23-year-old, which would see them take him on loan for the next year, was not considered to be satisfactory by Lotito or the rest of the Lazio hierarchy.


A centre back appears to be a top priority, with Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng and Harry Maguire all touted, but another midfielder may yet be on Mourinho's wish list. In order to do so, the Red Devils will have to smash their transfer record, with Lazio demanding €155 million for their prized asset.

There is plenty of Manchester United gossip doing the rounds in the papers with the English giants linked with a whole host of star names ahead of deadline day.

Meanwhile in Italy, Juventus are believed to have an agreement in place with the Biancocelesti but any deal to sign Milinkovic-Savic hinges upon whether or not midfielder Miralem Pjanic leaves the Serie A champions this summer.

Interestingly, the reigning European champions also remain keen in acquiring the services of the seven-time capped Serbian worldwide.
