According to a recent report by Sky in Italy, Manchester United are prepared to make a £72m bid to secure the signature of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic during this ongoing summer transfer window. However, the same source has also mentioned that the Italian outfit are demanding an offer around £90m and are not willing to drop their asking price this summer.
The Incredible Rise Of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic In The Serie A
The Serbia international enjoyed a fabulous 2017-18 campaign when he found the back of the net 14 times and created seven assists in 47 appearances for Lazio in all competitions. However, he struggled to keep up the same numbers last season as his form took a significant dip at the Stadio Olimpico.
However, the Lleida-born talent still managed to contribute by scoring a few important goals for the Italian outfit in the previous campaign which helped them secure a top half finish in the Serie A table. Milinkovic-Savic has represented Serbia in 12 international matches thus far and is destined to play a major role for his country in the coming years.
The 24-year-old will fit in well at Old Trafford if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer manages to orchestrate a move to bring him to Manchester this summer. The Serbian midfield ace knows what it is like to emerge victorious at the highest level, having lifted the Italian Cup and the Italian Super Cup during his spell at Lazio. Thus, he will bring a winning mentality to Manchester which could help them earn a top 4 berth in the Premier League next term.
What Does The European Prospect Offer On The Field?
Milinkovic-Savic can complete some lung-bursting dribbles from midfield and tends to create some decent openings for others around him. The Serbian star hardly gives away the ball in the opposition half and is a potent goal-threat from long range.
What makes the Lazio sensation such a special talent is his ability to provide cover at the back. He can win a lot of 50-50 duels at the centre of the park and is a good tackler off the ball which allows him to win back possession for his team. Milinkovic-Savic is also dominant in the air due to his incredible upper body strength.
The addition of a complete midfielder like Milinkovic-Savic will undoubtedly improve the quality of Solskjaer’s first-team at the Theatre of Dreams. At 24, he is about to embark upon the prime years of his playing career which Man United could look to benefit from over the next few campaigns.
