The Red Devils appear to have wrapped up a good deal by securing Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Italian side Lazio.
The Serbian international arrived the Turin outfit from Genk three seasons ago and has proven monumental in the club’s challenge for honours on the domestic front.
Sergei has been a reported long-term target for Jose Mourinho and the Sun now claims the Midfielder is poised to complete a transfer to Old Trafford in a stunning £80m deal.
Such massive financial outplay will place the Serbian just below Frenchman, Paul Pogba and ahead of summer signing Romelu Lukaku in the club’s most expensive transfers.
His arrival would also be a source of relief for Mourinho who incredibly launched a scathing attack on his players over a lack of enthusiasm in their recent Premier League loss to Brighton Athletic.
Mourinho is reportedly frustrated over his lack of a creative midfield option and will be looking to solidify a midfield set to be devoid of the presence of the retiring Micheal Carrick and estranged Marouane Fellaini.
Sergej’s dynamism and technicality means he can comfortably provide a creative spark and likewise run United’s engine room alongside Fellow countryman Nemanja Matic.
