Italian journalist David Amoyal has revealed that a potential transfer for Nikola Milenkovic is more likely than other defensive targets for Manchester United in this January transfer window.
The experienced journalist revealed this while responding to a question by a fan on Twitter as monitored by the Daily Express.
According to him, a transfer for Nikola Milenkovic is a more realistic option for the Red Devils other than defensive targets like Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar and Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly.
Nikola Milenkovic is a Serbian international defender that plays his club football for Italian Serie A side Fiorentina.
The 21-year-old is a utility defender that functions well at both the right-back and centre back positions.
Recent reports have linked Manchester United with a move for the young Serbian defender.
It was revealed that the three-time European champions want to sign Nikola Milenkovic in the current January transfer window and that they are preparing a bid of around €50m (£45m) for him.
Manchester United have several defenders on their books but they have not been able to stop the defensive slide experienced this season.
The Red Devils have conceded 32 goals in the league this season and are with one of the worst defensive records in the English top flight.
