Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Lazio have missed out on UEFA Champions League football after defeat on Sunday night and Manchester United fans feel it could be a boost to their potential pursuit of him this summer.
The Old Trafford side have been linked heavily with a move for him in the upcoming transfer window.
He put in a solid performance at home to Inter Milan this evening, but his side lost 3-2 late on and they will now have to settle for UEFA Europa League football next term.
Will that mean the player seeks Champions League football elsewhere?
United fans definitely want to sign him, especially so after watching him this weekend, believing he is the perfect kind of midfielder for Jose Mourinho’s system at the Red Devils.
Still just 23 years of age, he has enormous potential and would likely be a fantastic signing for the club if they can pull it off this summer.
Supporters took to Twitter on Sunday to share their thoughts…
United Should 100% Go Big For Sergej Milkinkovic Savic This Summer.

Anyone watching Lazio v Inter? Savic looks a proper player! And I would love Icardi at United!!

I cannot stress it enough. Milikovic-Savic have to be number one transfer target for United this summer. What a talent! A type of player Mourinho loves #MUFC

another good thing out of the Inter Lazio match is the it will now be easy to convince Savic to join United #UCL

No Champions League football for Lazio next season. Will certainly make the job easier for United to bring in Milinkovic Savic.

What a game!! Inter come back and win 3 -2 over Lazio. Inter into the Champions League and Lazio the Europa League.
Better chance for United to sign Milinković-Savić without CL football at Lazio! He was excellent btw 👍🏼 #LazioInter #MUFC
