Metro, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that the Red Devils are keen to sign the Serbia international to bolster their midfield options ahead of the 2018-19 Premier League campaign.
Jose Mourinho is set to be lightweight on options in the middle of the park ahead of Michael Carrick’s retirement at the end of the campaign following a 12-year career at Old Trafford.
Belgium international Marouane Fellaini is set to become a free agent in the summer unless Manchester United can convince the former Everton star to commit to a new contract.
The same article states that Manchester United face competition for the 23-year-old midfielder but the Red Devils hope Matic can prove to be a decisive factor when Milinkovic-Savic makes his decision.
The Red Devils signed Matic in a £40m deal from bitter rivals Chelsea FC last summer and the 29-year-old has quickly established himself as a key member of the Manchester United team.
Milinkovic-Savic is thought to look up to his compatriot Matic and would relish the chance to share a midfield with the two-time Premier League winner.
