Manchester United have identified Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as a replacement for want-away midfielder Paul Pogba, according to reports in the Spanish media.

Spanish outlet Marca, as quoted by the Daily Mail, is reporting that the Red Devils have identified the 24-year-old as the “ideal” replacement for Pogba should the World Cup winner leave Old Trafford.

The same story says that Pogba’s future at the club remains very much up in the air and that the Red Devils are now searching for a replacement for the France international.

According to the same article, Milinkovic-Savic is now Manchester United’s number one choice to replace Pogba should he indeed leave Liverpool FC this summer.

However, the story also says that Manchester United are likely to face complicated negotiations with Lazio, mainly because the Serie A side are demanding a transfer fee of €120m (£108m) for the Serbia international.

The article also credits both Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus with interest in signing Milinkovic-Savic this summer.

The midfielder – who has also been linked with Liverpool FC in the past – scored five goals and made three assists in 31 Serie A appearances for Lazio last season.
