MANCHESTER UNITED are edging closer to sealing an £81million deal for Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to reports.
It is claimed the Red Devils have currently agreed individual terms with the midfielder.
According to Italian news outlet Radiosei, United have presented Milinkovic-Savic, 24, a salary of five.4m a year.
But no charge has been agreed amongst the two clubs however, while it is understood Lazio are holding out for £81m.
The Serb’s agent – and former Chelsea flop Mateja Kezman – reportedly held talks with Old Trafford chiefs in London final week.
And Milinkovic-Savic is believed to have told his group-mates currently he is leaving the Rome-primarily based side this summer season.
But his move to Manchester reportedly depends on no matter if Paul Pogba, 26, will ultimately force his Red Devils exit by way of.
SunSport exclusively revealed that True Madrid had been preparing a final-ditch try to land the French Globe Cup winner.
But Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has blocked Gareth Bale’s mega-dollars switch to China.
The Welshman’s departure was supposed to cost-free up funds earmarked for the Pogba transfer.
And considering that Bale, 30, now appears to be staying place, Zinedine Zidane’s move for the Frenchman is in doubt.
Meanwhile, United are nonetheless chasing Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes, 24.
The midfielder was in tears yesterday immediately after becoming subbed off in his side’s friendly against Valencia.
