Welcome to Manchester United- Milinkovic-Savic’s Transfer To Manchester United A Done Deal
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s transfer to Manchester United is a done deal, as per reports.
The Lazio star has been heavily linked with a summer switch to the Old Trafford outfit, especially with Jose Mourinho set to bring in at least one midfield reinforcement in the upcoming transfer window.
Reports from the previous weekend indicated that United had already agreed an £80 million deal with the player, but his agent, Mateja Kezman, later dismissed that news by stating that no agreement was in place just yet.
With those sets of contrary reports having flown by, Manchester Evening News have now claimed that the Red Devils have indeed taken initial steps towards reaching an agreement over the 23-year-old’s mega transfer.
M.E.N. state that some members of Milinkovic-Savic’s camp have revealed that the negotiations between them and Manchester United are still in the premature stages, but the transfer is likely to be a done deal.
These discussions seem similar to United’s negotiations with the representatives of Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic, wherein the Reds agreed deals with the players much before the beginning of the summer transfer window.
The report also adds that along with Milinkovic-Savic, the Portuguese tactician remains interested in Shakhtar Donetsk star Fred and Napoli midfielder Jorginho as well.
If that would be the case, the Red Devils’ play in the centre of the pitch could be significantly more effective next season.
That could have a knock-on effect on their forward play, too, as the pair could bridge the gap between attack and defence much more coherently.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s representatives have reportedly said that his rumoured move to Manchester United is a “done deal.”
According to Samuel Luckhurst and Ciaran Kelly of the Manchester Evening News, some of the Lazio star’s camp have said that a switch to United is already agreed in a similar manner to the transfers of Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic, with whom the Red Devils had agreements in place before the transfer window even opened.
However, that is said to be premature in Milinkovic-Savic’s case, though the club remain interested in him.
The Serb’s agent is Mateja Kezman, whom United boss Jose Mourinho signed during his first spell at Chelsea.
