Manchester United have opened talks to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian outlet Il Messaggero, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Red Devils have stepped up their attempts to land the midfielder this summer as Jose Mourinho continues to look to bolster his squad ahead of next season.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for the Serbia international for some time as they look to assemble a squad capable of at least challenging for the Premier League title next season.

According to the same report, Manchester United are stepping up their bid to sign Milinkovic-Savic this summer after Real Madrid expressed an interest in the 23-year-old.

The Spanish giants are thought to have a large amount of cash to spend on new transfer this summer after Cristiano Ronaldo’s big-money move to Juventus was confirmed this week.

According to the story, Manchester United have now opened talks with Lazio about the possibility of signing Milinkovic-Savic this summer.

Manchester United are thought to still be on the lookout for a number of new signings as they look to bolster their squad following their trophyless campaign last term.
