-Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been linked with United quite a bit this summer, but their pursuit suffered a massive blow when it was reported that the midfielder had signed with Juventus. Well, it’s not over yet. SMS still could move to several clubs, as now the winners of three consecutive European championships, Real Madrid, are making their move.
Supposedly, a meeting between his agent Mateja Kezman and Real Madrid Chief Florentino Perez will be taking place this week.

The midfielder’s father would much rather his son go to Juve though, as he said to Tuttosport:
“I told Sergej many times, the Bianconeri would be the ideal club for him. In Turin, he can become a complete player and win it all, including the Ballon d’Or. Real? Madrid can wait.”
Milinkovic-Savic is probably the best player on the Serbian national side right now, and that’s amazing imagine how he would hypothetically fit in the middle of the park at United.

That is the dream midfield of all dream midfields right there at best, and at least, it’s an astoundingly expensive one.
-Speaking of high priced Eastern European targets playing for Italian clubs, United have reportedly had their bid for Milan Skriniar rejected. Gazzetta dello Sport reports that United offered €65 million, but Inter Milan said no.
Despite all that money spent on acquiring Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly in the past two transfer windows, United still started Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, a central defense pairing that some United supporters refer to as “the chuckle brothers” in a cup game.
A center back upgrade is needed, and maybe the third time’s the charm in regards to Mourinho center back buys.
-Today in the saga of want away forward Anthony Martial, a price has been set for him, and it’s £75 million, according to the Daily Mirror. If true, then Chelsea, Juventus, Tottenham Hotspur and Paris-Saint Germain have been put on notice.
Some report that now Real Madrid are in for the French striker as well.
