That Manchester United have been long-term admirers of Sergej Milinković-Savić is no secret, and there are a lot of articles to back that up.

The Serbian has widely been seen as the ideal replacement for Paul Pogba if the Frenchman were ever to leave Old Trafford, which looks increasingly likely now that his contract there runs out in the summer.

There’s still the odd chance he signs a renewal, but the general consensus is he will leave on a free and Manchester United will need to bring in somebody.

Over the past few summers, Milinković-Savić has often been linked with a move to the Premier League side, but the price tags have been very high, yet this time could be different.

Il Tempo have an article on the Serbia international’s future, where they make it very clear there is an ‘unwritten agreement with his agent’, and therefore the player himself as well, in place, which is that ‘if an offer from a top club should arrive, they will let him go’.

However, said bid would need to be ‘hefty’, with the newspaper claiming ‘no less than €70m’.

Basically, either he renews, as his current deal expires in 2024, or his sale in the summer is ‘possible’.

For now, though, his future is in Rome, where he will, as he always has done, try and help Lazio finish as high in the Serie A table as possible.
