Duncan Castles has tipped Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to leave Lazio this summer.

The Serbia international has been heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils from the Serie A giants in the current transfer window.

Indeed, the 23-year-old has been touted as a target for both Liverpool FC and Manchester United since 2017.

Manchester United are looking to close the gap between themselves and Premier League champions Manchester City.

The Red Devils finished 19 points adrift of the Citizens despite ending up above Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool FC.

Reporter Castles tipped Milinkovic-Savic to quit Lazio in the 2018 summer transfer window.

“I think he will move,” Castles told the Transfer Window podcast. “Lazio are desperate to sell him.

“The president of the club is trying to sell the player… Because they want to sell, I think he will go.

“I suspect they might not raise that degree of transfer fee.”

Milinkovic-Savic scored 12 times and made three assists in 35 appearances in Serie A in the 2017-18 season.

The Serbian star has netted 22 times in 125 games during three seasons at the Italian club.

Manchester United signed Brazil international Fred in a £52m deal from Shakhtar Donetsk last week before the Red Devils snapped up Diogo Dalot in a switch from FC Porto.
