Juventus have stepped up their efforts to sign a Manchester United midfielder target, while Liverpool are closing in on a Monaco youngster, all in Thursday’s Euro papers.
JUVENTUS STEP UP CHASE FOR TOP MAN UTD TARGET
Juventus have reportedly stepped up their interest in Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
The midfielder, 23, is regarded as one of the top young talents in European football and is said to be keen on quitting Lazio this summer.
The Serbian has been strongly linked with a switch to Old Trafford, with Jose Mourinho a known admirer, but it would appear that Juve are looking to steal a march on United.
An exclusive report on Calciomercato claims that the reigning Serie A champions have made several enquries about the player in recent weeks but have been told the price keeps on rising.
Milinkovic-Savic has scored 11 goals in all competitions this season, adding eight assists and is rated at around €150m (£130m).
