Manchester United are interested in Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to Sky in Italy.
Lazio’s president Claudio Lotito wants £90m for the 24-year-old and does not intend to lower the asking price.
It is understood Milinkovic-Savic, who signed a new deal with Lazio last October, would like to go but will not force a move and would be prepared to stay at Lazio for another year.
Manchester United had a long-standing interest in Milinkovic-Savic, with Jose Mourinho personally scouting him during Serbia’s 2-0 win over Montenegro in October 2018.
Milinkovic-Savic has scored 31 goals in 138 appearances for Lazio since joining from Belgian side Genk in July 2014.
United are in the market for at least one central midfielder this summer and have shown interest in Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes, Newcastle’s Sean Longstaff, and Southampton’s Mario Lemina.
