Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been a target for Manchester United for a long-time but the midfielder has now reached an agreement with another European giant.
Man United first tried to sign the Serbian star three years ago, reports the Express, and have intermittently been linked to the Lazio man ever since.
The Manchester club was always a possibility for Milinkovic-Savic’s next club but the Serbian has now reached an agreement with Juventus over his salary, reports Tuttosport.
All that is left is for the Serie A giants to now reach an agreement over a fee with fellow Italian club Lazio, as the Rome-based team looks to receive big money for one of their best players ahead of his contract expiring in 2024.
