Lazio have reportedly dropped their demands for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, with Red Devils and PSG named as two interesting sides in the midfielder. Serbia international has returned to form this year and enjoyed a fine campaign thus far, scoring six goals and providing seven assists in 35 games as he has been a pivotal figure in Lazio’s Serie A title push.
However, speculation over his future at the Italian club seemingly hasn’t been entirely dismissed, as club president Claudio Lotito has dropped his price-tag from €100m to €70m and he is expected to leave this summer with teams in Italy said to be unable to afford him.
Further, it’s specifically noted that the Red Devils and Parisians are the two clubs still ‘in the play’ with that figure in mind, although it’s added that a move to Theatre of Dreams is only likely to happen if the Norwegian boss is looking to replace Paul Pogba.
Given the fantastic form that Red Devils have been in either side of the covid lockdown, with Paul returning from injury since the restart to play an important part in their ongoing push for titles and a top-four finish in the PL, it looks as though things might be clicking into place for Man United.
With that in mind, they will surely be eager to avoid losing the 27-year-old midfielder at the end of the campaign, but if they have to admit defeat in their bid to keep him, then the Serbian midfielder could arguably be a top replacement to help fill that void.
