The door could be open for Liverpool to make a swoop for a Leipzig star, while Man Utd and PSG are chasing the same €200m pair, according to Thursday’s European papers.
MAN UTD FACE COMPETITION FOR €200M DUO
Manchester United have been alerted to news that Lazio need to sell Sergej Milinkovic-Savic quickly while they face competition for both him and Paulo Dybala from PSG, reports claim.
It is believed that United have identified Milinkovic-Savic as the man to replace Paul Pogba, with an €80million (£72m) bid being readied for the Serbia international.
Pogba’s time at Old Trafford appears to be nearing its conclusion as speculation continues to grow surrounding a possible exit.
The maverick midfielder has made clear his desire to seek a new challenge away from Manchester United, with Real Madrid circling as they consider different ways of making a deal possible.
According to Calciomercato.com, Lazio are aware that they must offload the 24-year-old as they don’t want to keep an unhappy player, and would also like to raise funds for his replacement – Trabzonspor’s Yusuf Yazici.
PSG are also credited with interest in Milinkovic-Savic, while a report from Don Balon now claim that the Parisiens are also after Paulo Dybala.
Dybala has 73 Serie A goals in 189 games for Palermo and Juve, and could be viewed as a possible replacement for Romelu Lukaku who has been repeatedly linked with a move to Inter.
