Manchester United are finalising personal terms with Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror quote unnamed reports in Italy that state the Red Devils are closing in on their third signing of the summer transfer window.

The same article states Manchester United will pay £70m to sign the Lazio midfielder ahead of the new Premier League season.

However, according to the same story, Milinkovic-Savic’s deal will only be triggered if Paul Pogba leaves the 20-time English champions this summer.

The Daily Mirror go on to add that Real Madrid and Juventus are both still interested in a swoop to sign Pogba.

The report goes on to say that Manchester United are looking to secure a transfer fee in the region of £180m for the World Cup winner.

Manchester United were 2-1 winners against Tottenham Hotspur in their pre-season friendly on Thursday.

The Red Devils have taken steps to improve their squad this summer following the arrival of Swansea City midfielder Daniel James and Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Manchester United finished outside the top four last season to miss out on Champions League football in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first full campaign in charge.

The 20-time English champions finished without silverware for the second successive season.
