Manchester United have made initial contact to sign Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to Foot Mercato.

According to the report, Manchester United have held initial talks with Milinkovic-Savic’s representatives this month. It is believed that the club view Milinkovic-Savic as the ideal signing to play alongside Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in their midfield.

However, Lazio’s sporting director, Igli Tare, has now indicated that his club are open to selling Milinkovic-Savic if they receive an acceptable offer.

“The boy’s relationship with the city and Lazio will never die because there is a very strong bond that has grown over years,” Tare said in June.

“On the other hand, considering the situation, his wishes, everything we’ve talked about, every situation will be evaluated at the right time without any pressure, but above all for the good of both parties.

“If there is a possibility that satisfies the club and the player, it will be taken into consideration.

“If there is not, he is happy and we are very happy for him to stay.”
