According to Serbian daily newspaper Blic, the deal that would see Lazio’s Sergej Milinković-Savić move to Manchester United for €100million is all but done.
The outlet expects Milinković-Savić to make an impact at the upcoming World Cup in Russia and the only question that remains for them is whether the transfer will be finalized before or after the tournament takes place.
Serbian national team manager Mladen Krstajić spoke highly of the 23-year-old. He said he considers him a great talent and expressed his regret that the player couldn’t play in the team’s last two friendlies due to injury. The only thing Krstajić doesn’t like is when people compare Milinković-Savić to Paul Pogba, as he views the Lazio midfielder as a unique player, branding a style of his own.
Those comparisons, however, are only likely to get more frequent should the deal materialize and the two players line up together next season, along with Milinković-Savić’s international teammate Nemanja Matić.
