Manchester United are progressing well with talks to sign Fred and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Reds are closing in on the singing of the duo as Jose Mourinho looks to land his first two signings of the summer transfer window.

The same story says that talks about signing Shakhtar Donetsk’s Fred for around £50m are “progressing” as the Red Devils look to get their transfer business done early.

The article also claims that Manchester United are moving to sign Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio, with the midfielder rated at around £80m.

The same story also reports that Manchester United want to sign two new full-backs in the summer transfer window, with Juventus’ Alex Sandro one potential option.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for their trip to Brighton in the Premier League on Friday night.

The Red Devils currently find themselves in second place in the Premier League table as they bid to finish as runners-up to Manchester City and also win the FA Cup this season.

Mourinho’s men will take on Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final as they look to end the season on a high at the end of May.
