Manchester United are reportedly in a battle to sign Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic with other big teams on the European football stage.

According to Football Italia, French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) are one of the teams interested in a move for Milinkovic-Savic. It was revealed that the French capital club wants to pay the €100m release clause in his contract.

PSG are not the only club keen to sign the Lazio star as it was revealed that West London giants Chelsea, Real Madrid and Juventus are also monitoring his situation at his club.

Manchester United are long-term admirers of the player and they have to fight off the interest of the aforementioned four European giants if they want to sign him.

The 15-cap Serbian international was one of the most sought-after young players just before the 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia. It was on the back of a stellar season for Lazio.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic didn’t have the best of time at the World Cup tournament in Russia and that led to the drop in interest in his services.

He has been in good form for Lazio who are in the thick of things as far as the Italian Serie A title challenge is concerned. Lazio is in a three-way title race with both Juventus and Inter Milan.

Lazio came into the weekend as the top team in the top flight of Italian football before Juventus usurped them by winning their outstanding game.

The capital club had a two-point lead over Juventus before last night’s home clash with Inter Milan.

Aaron Ramsey and second half substitute Paolo Dybala scored in the second half to lead Juventus to a 2-0 win over Inter Milan. Juventus were able to secure top spot on the Italian Serie A table as a result of the victory.
