Man United close to signing £70m Lazio playmaker, Savic


Manchester United are ‘close’ to sealing a £70 million deal for Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to reports in Italy.
Reports indicate that United have ‘relaunched’ a bid to sign Serbia playmaker to replace Paul Pogba who has been linked with Real Madrid and Juventus.
United are reported to leading the race ahead of PSG to sign Milinkovic-Savic, who have also shown interest in the midfielder.
‘Sergej’ will reportedly be in for a salary of 6-7 million euros a year if he joins the Reds, although reports in England claim United have not interested in the player and that his agents could be behind the speculation to raise his valuation.
United are yet to launch any bid for the player and the reports emanating from Italy could be just rumours,” said a source.
United are currently in China for their pre-season tour and earlier overcame Tottenham 2-1 to win their fourth successive matches in the pre-season.
Anthoney Martial struck in the first half to give United the lead before Lucas Maura equalized in the second half with a deflected effort.
It was academy graduate Angel Gomes who scored late in the game to give the Red Devils a deserved victory.
