Manchester United remain in the hunt for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, with Juventus and Real Madrid among the other potential destinations for the Serbia global as his agents attempt to engineer a summer move for the player.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has assured Lazio fans he is entirely focused on the new season with the club, despite persistent rumours he is set to depart the Stadio Olimpico.

The Red Devils may have added Fred to their options in the middle of the park this summer, but are yet to truly solve their Paul Pogba conundrum as he struggles to hit top form in Jose Mourinho's system.

Jose Mourinho has spent most of pre-season in a haze of anger due to the clubs lack of transfer activity but there is still time for the wallet to be opened.

Fellow Italian side Milan are rumoured to have approached Lazio too but their offer for the 23-year-old, which would see them take him on loan for the next year, was not considered to be satisfactory by Lotito or the rest of the Lazio hierarchy.

The Serbia worldwide, who was linked with a move to Old Trafford much earlier in the window, has recently been the subject of fresh approaches from Inter, AC Milan and Juventus as Lazio prepare to cash in.

His agent, Mino Raiola reportedly delivered a player-plus-cash proposal from Barca to United board on Monday, having jetted in to Manchester to try and secure a departure. "110 million? Milinkovic-Savic is worth more, because he is much better".

The Bianconeri have been further bolstered by the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid - and the Serbian believes that the arrival of the Portuguese legend will benefit the whole division.
