Manchester United have agreed an £80m deal to make Sergej Milinkovic-Savic their first summer signing, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils have agreed a big-money deal to make the 23-year-old Lazio star their first signing of the summer window.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his squad ahead of his third campaign at Old Trafford.

Now, according to the same story, Manchester United have made a “breakthrough” in their talks to sign Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio after having held talks last week.

The same report says that Manchester United were at first reluctant to meet the Lazio midfielder’s asking price but they have now accepted that they are going to have to pay “top dollar” to sign him.

Manchester United are looking to assemble a squad capable of challenging Manchester City’s dominance in the Premier League next season.

The Red Devils have failed to keep pace with their local rivals this term, with Pep Guardiola’s men having run away with the title.

Mourinho is still aiming to guide Manchester United to a trophy this season, with the Red Devils set to take on Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final this month.
