Manchester United backed out of negotiations for Milinkovic-Savic after learning about Lazio's financial demands earlier in the summer but with Paul Pogba's future under renewed focus, there is talk the club could revisit the case this week.

Manchester United are ready to rival Chelsea in a move to sign Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to reports in Italy. Manager Jose Mourinho has been left frustrated with the lack of signings and is desperate to add more players to his roster before the transfer window closes.

United are reportedly in the market for another centre-back with several names being linked but it seems they are also searching for a top class midfielder amid strong speculation suggesting Paul Pogba is trying to engineer a move out of Old Trafford this summer.

The Italian publication says United have now formalised their interest by tabling an opening £89.3m offer but Lazio president Claudio Lotito is determined to squeeze more out of the Manchester giants and is demanding closer to £107m.

The Italian champions want to make sure that there are no Premier League clubs involved in the transfer chase once they decide to approach Lazio for Milinkovic-Savic. He made his Serbia debut in 2017 and represented his nation at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

23-year-old Milinkovic-Savic has been linked with leading clubs around Europe all summer but is now back in pre-season training with the Biancocelesti.

"Of course I do not want to sell, but if you asked me how much he is worth, I will remind you that previous year I refused a €110 million offer".

The Bianconeri have been further bolstered by the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid - and the Serbian believes that the arrival of the Portuguese legend will benefit the whole division.
