Man Utd ‘will be pursuing’ Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as £59.3m transfer alternative for Frenkie de Jong
MANCHESTER UNITED will reportedly pursue Frenkie de Jong transfer alternative Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
The Red Devils are plotting a rebuild under new boss Erik ten Hag and former Ajax ace De Jong is on his summer wish list.
But should a move for the Barcelona midfielder fail to materialise, Man Utd will pursue Lazio's Milinkovic-Savic, according to FootballTransfers.
The 27-year-old Serbia international is valued at £59.3million.
However, European giants Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are also expected to join the race for Milinkovic-Savic’s signature and both can offer Champions League football, unlike United.
Journalist Pete O’Rourke told GiveMeSport: “I think he’s somebody who United will be pursuing to bring into that midfield, and he’s probably more attainable than a Frenkie de Jong right now.

“So, I think United will be trying to do something on this and trying to bring him to Old Trafford despite after all these years of speculation of him possibly moving there.”
United may need more than just one marquee midfield signing.
Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard will all leave the club when their contracts expire later this month.
Pogba is being linked with a move back to Juventus, where he made a name for himself on the world stage.

Like Pogba, Lingard is also attracting interest from the Serie A.
West Ham are also said to be keen on Lingard.
The midfielder spent the second half of the 20/21 season on loan at the East London club.
