Super-agent Jorge Mendes could hold the key to £150million Manchester United transfer saga

Posted by

Manchester United face missing out on £150million-rated Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as super-agent Jorge Mendes reportedly tries to get him a big transfer to PSG.

Sport Witness recently linked the talented 22-year-old with a possible £88million move to Old Trafford, with Jose Mourinho said to be a big fan of the youngster.

However, Corriere dello Sport now suggest Milinkovic-Savic could head to PSG instead due to Mendes’ involvement and connections with both clubs.

If the Serbia international were to move to the Parc des Princes for that fee, he would become one of the most expensive players of all time.

This would follow a recent trend at PSG, who broke the world transfer record to sign Neymar from Barcelona in the summer, with BBC Sport reporting they paid £200million for the Brazilian.

He was then followed by the loan signing of Kylian Mbappe from Monaco, though this transfer is expected to be made permanent for £165.7m next summer, also according to BBC Sport.

One of the most wealthy and ambitious clubs in the world, PSG would be making another big statement by beating United to a player like Milinkovic-Savic.
