One of the main recurring stories we’ve seen involving Manchester United, other than the Jadon Sancho one, has been that of Nikola Milenkovic.

Starting during the José Mourinho era, the Red Devils’ interest in the Serbian defender has never really gone away, even after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over at Old Trafford.

That being said, no concrete move has been made for a while, but that could certainly change in the summer if La Repubblica, relayed by, are to be believed.

According to the Italian newspaper, the defender, whose contract with Fiorentina runs out in 2022, has yet to renew, and isn’t expected to.

That means the Serie A side, realistically, would have to sell next summer in order to avoid losing him on a free, and there are a number of clubs interested.

Inter, Milan and Juventus are those in the same league, while Manchester United are mentioned as being ‘in pole position’ for the centre-back.

They add his destination ‘seems to be in English colours’, with the Italian trio ‘now in the background’ as the Red Devils ‘are preparing to overtake’ them.

One to keep an eye on in the coming months, as the closer he gets to the summer without renewing, the better things are for Manchester United.
