Real Madrid Plot Milinkovic Savic Swoop For Man Utd Target As Mourinho Risks Missing Out.
Real Madrid lost the services of their influential striker Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus earlier in the week and they are now looking at the prospect of replacing him this summer.
Replacing Ronaldo will surely be a very tough task to achieve, considering the Portuguese ruthlessness in front of goal.
Having played 445 games for the Los Blancos since he joined the team from Manchester United in 2009, the 33-year-old striker scored 450 goals in all competitions.
Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui has, however, found a player whom he believes will be a worthy replacement for the playing legend.
Lazio attacking midfielder Milinkovic-Savic, who is being tracked by José Mourinho, is tipped to join the Santiago Bernabeu outfits this summer as the player’s replacement.
According to Don Balon, the Spanish giants are set to offer £120m for his signature so as to beat their Premier League counterparts in the race for the Serbian player.
Milinkovic-Savic is fast becoming a force to reckon with when it comes to European football. He was involved in 48 matches played by the Italian side during last season, he was directly involved in 25— goals 14 goals and 9 assists.
The player will surely be a perfect addition to Lopetegui’s squad next season but it will take him some time before he can be as productive as the man he’s topped tipped to replace.
