Euro Paper Talk: £40m Man Utd defensive target gives hint over future

Date published: Friday 8th March 2019 12:04

A Manchester United defensive target has been speaking about the chances of a move, while PSG are set for a huge clear out , according to Friday’s European papers.



Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic has been discussing his future, as talk of a potential move to Manchester United or Juventus continues to circulate.

The Serbian star has enjoyed another impressive season in Serie A and that has not gone unnoticed, as some of Europe’s big hitters sit up and take notice.

And speaking to Il Messaggero about the chances of him moving on this summer, the 21-year-old said: “The season is very long, there are some positive periods; I work on a daily basis to get stronger than the previous day, and I do not get distracted by the numbers that circulate about me – I’m a humble guy.”

Humble he may be, but Fiorentina will have a job on their cards trying to keep one of the most talented centre-backs in European football on the books.

Indeed, United were rumoured to have had a £40million bid turned down for Milenkovic in January and they are expected to be back in for the player this summer – once they have sorted out who their next permanent manager is.
