Race for £62m Manchester United target is hotting up, Manchester City eye a January bid

Posted by

Lazio’s midfield powerhouse Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is a player in demand with Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus all said to be interested.

A report from the Sun has stated that Manchester City are the most recent team to enter the race with Pep Guardiola eyeing up the possibility of a January bid.

The Serbian international is just 22-years-old but has emerged as one of the stars in Italy with his performances for Lazio in Serie A catching the eye of many.

The central-midfiedler stands at an impressive six foot and three and a half inches tall and has the perfect attributes to make it as a star in the Premier League.

It is no surprise that Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho could be about to embark on a transfer war over the star who could carry quite a hefty price-tage for the Manchester clubs.

Italian football outlet CalcioMercato have previously reported that Lazio are unlikely to allow Milinkovic-Savic to leave for anything less than €70 million (£62m) with the report stating that they have already rejected a bid in this region from an unspecified club.

Milinkovic-Savic is not a well-reknown name amongst English football fans but we could be on the verge of a monumental transfer battle between City and United for one of the brightest young talents in world football.
