Sergej Milinkovic-Savic responds to Manchester United speculation

I'm more Toure than Zidane- Milinkovic-Savic

The Serbian International rose to fame after a superb season in Italy with Lazio.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic since quite some time, and the midfielder has recently stated that he will decide on his future only after the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

Savic is strong in the air, physically imposing and has great technical ability.

Meanwhile, Juventus have also registered their interest in the midfielder but Lazio President Claudio Lotito has made it clear that he would rather sell Milinkovic-Savic overseas.

Lazio now value their midfield asset at a considerable £132 million, something which has forced Man United into reconsidering their interest.

And having agreed a deal with Shakhtar Donetsk for Fred, they could decide against making a move for Savic.

Mr Trump had said on Saturday he would know within a minute of meeting Mr Kim whether he would reach a deal. That was to be followed by dark chocolate tarts, pastries and vanilla ice cream for dessert.

United are less keen to splash so much cash on the star, so Los Blancos "are believed to have the upper hand in any pursuit", per Fay.

Madrid, who are currently in the process of looking for a new coach following the departure of Zinedine Zidane, recently claimed a record third consecutive Champions League title and are now thought to be looking to reshape their squad ahead of the new season.

It is unlikely that Milinkovic-Savic's future will be sorted before the end of the FIFA World Cup, where he is one of the players to watch.

Lazio are unsure whether to let him go, but may be happier if they have a ready made replacement.

Savic has the potential to become one of Europe's best midfielders and his potential transfer could be set to become the biggest saga of the summer.

The race to sign Milinkovic-Savic takes an interesting turn.
