Posted by

Man United are willing to make a huge offer of £115M for Lazio ace and Real Madrid target this summer, with the club looking to snatch him from under the noses of Los Blancos. 

This is being reported by Don Balon, who are stating that the £115M (€130M) offer is already just under £9M (€10M) higher than the one lodged by Real Madrid, however that both of these offers seem to be lower than the €150M the Italian giants are asking for.

The news outlet are also reporting that bolstering his options in the middle of park is something Mourinho wants to get done this summer, something he’ll certainly be doing should the Red Devils manage to bring Milinkovic-Savic to Old Trafford.

Man United are ready to outbid Real Madrid in the race for Serbian Milinkovic-Savic

Despite Serbia being knocked out of the World Cup in the group stages, Milinkovic-Savic still played a key part in his country coming oh so close to finishing ahead of Switzerland in their group.

The midfielder was fantastic in his side’s 1-0 win over Costa Rica, with his valiant efforts not being enough to prevent his nation from losing 2-1 to Switzerland in the last minute in their second group game.

The 23-year-old was on top form for Italian giants Lazio last season, with the player managing to bag a total of 14 goals and nine assists in all competitions as his side narrowly missed out on qualification for next season’s Champions League in Serie A to Inter Milan.

If Man United end up offering the aforementioned amount of Milinkovic-Savic, it’ll definitely be interesting to see if Lazio accept it and are willing to lower their asking price for the player.
