Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has remained coy when quizzed about his future as he continues to be linked with a transfer to Manchester United and other clubs.

The 23-year-old Lazio midfielder has been strongly touted as a target for the Red Devils in recent days as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his squad ahead of next season.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for midfield reinforcements as they bid to try and build a team capable of challenging for the Premier League title next term.

Milinkovic-Savic has also been linked with a possible move to Juventus this summer, although the speculation about his future seems to be nothing but media talk at this stage.

The midfielder is currently on international duty with Serbia at the World Cup in Russia, and he remained coy when quizzed about his future this week.

Milinkovic-Savic said in an interview with Italian outlet Premium Sport: “I’m thinking only of the national team, not the transfer market.

“Juventus? I can smile, but I have to think solely about the World Cup. Then we’ll see.”

Manchester United are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Mourinho looks to build in his third season in charge.

The Red Devils have already concluded deals for both Fred and Diogo Dalot this summer as they prepare for a title challenge next term.
