Italian agent Bernardo Brovarone believes Lazio will struggle to reject the kind of offers they might receive for Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the summer.

Real Madrid and Paris St Germain are also in the race to win the signature of Savic.

According to the same report, Milinkovic-Savic is on Manchester United's shortlist for midfield reinforcements this summer along with Nice midfielder Jean Seri.

Lazio have made it known they won't sell for less than €100m and with some of the world's biggest clubs interested, they may hit that figure without too much trouble. I'm happy at Lazio and am feeling good here for now, but then we will have to see'.

Who is Sergej Milinkovic-Savic?

The 22-year-old versatile central midfielder has been turning attention since joining Lazio in the summer of 2015. The box-to-box midfielder uses his physique to impose authority on the team.

Milinkovic-Savic's aerial duels, desire to take long shots on goal, playing clever through balls and also going deep to assist the defense are seen as some of the major highlights of his game.

"Lazio are now on a great run and everyone is concentrating on that".

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been impressive not just this season but throughout his journey at Lazio, after joining from Genk.

He also warned that the latter's value was already significant after that aforementioned offer and it is only expected to increase further following the forthcoming World Cup in Russian Federation, where he should add to his two senior caps having been included in caretaker boss Mladen Krstajic's Serbia squad for November friendlies against China and South Korea after being persistently overlooked by former head coach Slavoljub Muslin throughout the qualification period.

Manchester United desperately need to add some creativity to their midfield and the potential arrival of Milinkovic-Savic can certainly add that to the Red Devils' midfield.
