Man United Eye Sergej Milinkovic-Savic As Frenkie De Jong Alternative

Based on a report in Italy, Manchester United are weighing a swoop for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic Savic rather than FC Barcelona – star Frenkie de Jong..

The Italian website Football Italia reports that the Red Devils are preparing a back up plan should Manchester United don’t sign De Jong from FC Barcelona this summer.

Precisely the same article states that Manchester United have been looking after De Jong since the beginning of the 2022 summer transfer window though the Red Devils still have not landed the Netherlands international.

Based on the same story, De Jong is not considering a move to Manchester United – making the 20-time English champions in a place in which they will have to think about midfield alternatives..

Football Italia also reports that Manchester United have selected Milinkovic Savic as a possible option who could improve Erik 10 Hag’s midfield position prior to his first season as manager.

The Italian site claim that Milinkovic Savic has become a long-range target for Manchester United after the Red Devils initially showed an interest in the Serbia international a couple of years back.

According to the report, Milinkovic-Savic may be reluctant to join Manchester United after failing to qualify for the Champions League after a dissatisfactory campaign last season..

In the past season, the 27-year-old netted 11 times and made eleven assists in 37 matches in Serie A.

Over the past seven seasons, Milinkovic-Savic has scored 58 times in 294 matches in all competitions at Lazio. In 2017, he made his senior international debut for Serbia and since that time has scored 6 goals in thirty four matches for his country..
