Manchester United might have to double their speed in their race to capture Serbian international Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as Juventus seem to be leading the chase for his signature.
The Red Devils have shown their determination to capture the midfielder earlier in the month by making an official approach to Lazio’s representatives for his signature.
However, Mourinho could miss out on the player’s services ahead of the upcoming season as reports suggest that the Serbian international is happy over the report linking him with a move to Juventus, who are also set to battle the Red Devils for his signature.
The box-to-box midfielder is being tracked by Maximiliano Allegri who is hoping to bolster his team’s attacking strength before the 2018-19 commences.
According to Milinko-Savic in an interview with newsmen, it is a great feeling to be linked with a move to a great club like Juventus.
He revealed that he always smile whenever it crosses his mind that the Scuddeto Champions are interested in his service.
Though he’s happy about Juventus link, the player reiterate that he is fully focused on helping Serbia to the second round of the ongoing Russia 2018 World Cup tournament.
According to Tuttosport, Milinko-Savic is valued at €100m by Lazio and that seems too steep for a player who hasn’t make a name for himself.
