Long-term Manchester United transfer target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is available for a cut-price £44 million fee this month.
That’s according to a report from Tutto Juve who claim that Lazio have softened their stance on the 27-year-old midfielder, with his contract expires in 2024.
It was only last summer when the Serie A club were reportedly demanding around €70 million (£62m) for Milinkovic-Savic (talkSPORT).
His price tag now represents a 30% discount for United, and Erik ten Hag cannot afford to miss out on bringing him to Old Trafford for that kind of money.
Manchester United handed great Sergej Milinkovic-Savic opportunity
Tutto Juve claim that Lazio are prepared to send the midfielder out on loan for a €10m (£9m) fee this month. The Serie A club also want a €40m (£35m) obligation to buy inserted into the deal.
This sounds like a deal that United cannot afford to pass up on.
Milinkovic-Savic would take United’s central midfield to a whole new level entirely. He excels in the number 8 position and would be the perfect accompaniment to Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes in the engine room.
The powerful Serbian would offer United protection defensively and be a really potent threat for them in the final third.
If United sign Milinkovic-Savic for a fee totalling £44m, it would be a masterstroke from the club.
