Mourinho has Man Utd scouts get serious about Milinkovic-Savic

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is having serious scouting reports drawn up on Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Serbia international has been followed by United scouts this season, but Gazzetta Dello Sport says Mourinho has stepped up their interest this month.

Mourinho wants to find a new midfield signing this summer and Milinkovic-Savic is under serious consideration.

The 22 year-old is also interesting Juventus and PSG, with Lazio president Claudio Lotito believing an auction could drive his asking price to near €100m.

Just last week, Mourinho said: "We need to sign a midfield player because we are going to lose Michael Carrick.

"You can accuse me of many, many things, but you cannot say that I lied to you. When I don't want to say things, I don't say (them). But I don't take you in other directions.

"When I told you a couple of months ago that we don't want to sign any striker or any winger and, yes, we are looking, and we are going to try to sign a midfield player, I told you that two months ago."
