Manchester United are preparing to make a big-money bid to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic before Thursday’s transfer deadline, according to reports in Italy.

Italian outlet Calciomercato is reporting that the Red Devils are one of a number of clubs looking to sign the 23-year-old from Lazio before the close of the summer transfer window.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with a move for the Serbia international throughout the summer window, but it now seems as though the Red Devils could be set to make a fresh move to try and land him this week.

According to the same story, Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid are all keen on signing the midfielder this summer.

The article says that Manchester United are now facing a race against time to try and get a deal over the line for Milinkovic-Savic before the transfer window closes on Thursday.

Manchester United will kick off the new Premier League season when they take on Leicester City at Old Trafford on Friday night.

The Red Devils have only signed Lee Grant, Diogo Dalot and Fred so far this summer ahead of Jose Mourinho’s third season in charge of the club.
