Manchester United had the chance to have a look at their club’s transfer target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in action on Sunday.
The Lazio midfielder played the full 90 minutes for his nationa Serbia against Costa Ric at the World Cup in Russia and helped his side to a 1-0 victory in Group E.
Although, Savic passes wasn’t that quite spectacular buthe did link up well with Newcastle United striker Aleksandre Mitrovic and almost see the net with an overhead kick.
An earlier report from talkSPORT reads that:
“Manchester United have agreed a stunning £80 million deal to sign Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to reports.”
Real Madrid are also said to be interested in signing the midfielder but with reports saying the Red Devils could sell Paul Pogba this summer, there should be enough funds to secure the signing of the Serbia star this summer.
Here are fans reactions on Twitter:

Not sure if Sergej Milinkovic Savic can play alongside Pogba… It has has to be either one of them in that advance MF role & as we already have him I would prefer Pogba to play there. #MUFC

Milinkovic-Savic has had a very good game. I would love #mufc to sign him but let’s be realistic we won’t go for him. Pogba, Matic and Fred if we ever announce him will be the midfield. I just hope we sort out the LB and CB issue that’s main points this summer. #MUFC

I’m impressed by Sergej Milinkovic-Savic so far against Costa Rica. That attempted overhead kick would have definitely made headlines if it wasn’t offside. Woodward needs to close this deal ASAP. #MUFC #CRCSRB

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic for £70-80m is a fair deal.
This ~£90m talk is laughable for a player who’s not played in the CL. #mufc
