Manchester United fans face the ignominy of seeing their bitter rivals Manchester City clinch the league title against them on April 7th.
That humiliating prospect will only intensify their desire to return to the top of English football next time around and close the gap on Pep Guardiola’s swashbuckling side.
One area in which Jose Mourinho, if he is still at the helm next season, must improve his squad if that is to become reality is central midfield.
Michael Carrick confirmed that he will retire earlier this month, Marouane Fellaini’s contract dispute is still unresolved and Ander Herrera has failed to replicate the form he showed last season.
Then there is the conundrum over Paul Pogba; has he fallen out with Mourinho? What really is his best position?
Nemanja Matic has performed admirably this season but has shown signs of tiredness at times; after all, he is the club’s sole holding midfielder and he plays nearly every game.
United need more and there is one man – Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, valued at £49.5m by Transfermarkt, that their fans have at the top of their shopping list…
Milinkovic-Savic is the best signing we can make this summer. Fast, tall, good on the ball, can tackle, aggressive, exactly what our midfield needs. Get the deal done Jose!#MUFC pic.twitter.com/fNpwvIZJFd

He probably be a perfect fit for united. He basically a Serbia equivalent to Claudio Marchisio.

I agree Savic will be perfect for our trio, but Herreras situation worries me a bit, Mctominays rise to the first team has dropped him down the pecking order and might cause some unrest, I wouldn’t want another midfielder unless Fellaini leaves, remember Perreira is also back

2 CM's will be coming in, Savic, Jorginho, Seri, Soler, Kroos, Fabregas
