Manchester United are targeting Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as a replacement for Paul Pogba this summer, according to Spanish outlet Marca.
The report states that Pogba has already told his teammates he expects to leave Man United this summer, with Real Madrid and Juventus potential destinations.
Who is Man Utd’s worst ever player? Bebe? Eric Djemba-Djemba? The fan in the video below actually think it’s one of the Red Devils’ current crop…
The Frenchman has spent three seasons in his second spell at the club, emerging as one of the team’s most important players.
Last season was a disappointing one for United, but Pogba was one of their stand-outs, scoring 16 times and assisting 11 more goals.
Milinkovic-Savic has extensive experience in Serie A with Lazio and last season helped bring success back to the Italian giants by winning the Coppa Italia, scoring in the final against Atalanta.
Some United fans feel the Serbian international’s all-round midfield game makes him an ideal replacement for the want-away Pogba, with these supporters taking to Twitter over the weekend to share their thoughts…
If United really want to maintain themselves in midfield with Pogba leaving they should seek to buy Sergej Milinković-Savić. Fans say “he is like Pogba”, however, he works harder and plays deeper; a midfielder who willingly plays deeper is extremely valuable in today's game. pic.twitter.com/ic8q93XjNV

He’s the right guy for any midfield, totally dominates the midfield and he’s a leader

I’ve been saying from the beginning. If Pogba goes, we must get this guy.
