Man Utd launch fresh bid for Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic

Manchester United are reviving their interest in Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic.

The Mirror says United have bid £45million bid for Milenkovic of Serie A club Fiorentina as they continue to chase Harry Maguire, according to reports in Italy.

United desperately need defensive reinforcements after they conceded 54 Premier League goals last season - more than rivals Liverpool and Manchester City put together.

The Red Devils remain confident they have the upper hand over fierce rivals City in the race to sign Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire, with reports claiming club chiefs are optimistic they can thrash out a £75m deal for the former Hull star.

But while City's interest is thought to have cooled as they are not prepared to pay a world-record fee for the defender, United are still looking elsewhere for centre-backs.

And they have contacted Fiorentina this week over 6ft 5ins giant centre-back Milenkovic.
