Man Utd make fresh approach for Fiorentina star with €50m price tag

Manchester United have made another enquiry for Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic, according to one journalist.

Defence is one area that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is understandably eager to strengthen in, as United’s leaky back line let in the most goals of any team in the top nine of the Premier League last season.

Harry Maguire was believed to be the Norwegian’s prime target, with reports on Wednesday suggesting he is confident of sealing an £85m deal for the England international.

However, Milenkovic’s name was mentioned all the way back in January, when it was claimed that United had seen a £40m bid for the Serbia international turned down.

Now, according to reliable journalist Gianluca di Marzio, United ‘made an enquiry’ with Fiorentina over the 21-year-old.

He also acknowledges the fact that the Red Devils came in for Milenkovic last January, but that La Viola were demanding €50million at the time, and it is unlikely their demands will have gone down.

Milenkovic has made a big name for himself since moving to Italy from Serbian outfit Partizan in 2017, becoming one of the bright spots last term in a Fiorentina side that only just avoided relegation.
