Man Utd to make first offer for Lazio midfielder Milinkovic-Savic

Manchester United are ready to make a first offer for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Sky Italia says United are lining up a £72m bid for Lazio midfielder Milinkovic-Savic - but the Italian club are demanding £90m.

The Old Trafford club see Milinkovic-Savic as a possible replacement for Paul Pogba should he leave the club this summer.

Milinkovic-Savic is keen on the move but, having signed a new contract in October, will not force a departure through this summer.

New PSG sporting director Leonardo is interested in the Serbia international, while Maurizio Sarri's Juventus are also monitoring the situation.

Milinkovic-Savic, who joined from Belgian club Genk in 2014, has registered 31 goals in 138 appearances for Lazio.
