Man Utd 'line up Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as cheaper transfer alternative to Declan Rice'

MANCHESTER UNITED are interested in signing Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to reports.

The Red Devils are desperate to bolster their midfield before next season.

Club icon Paul Parker labelled their current set of midfielders as 'relegation standard'.

Their primary target is West Ham star Declan Rice.

But they know that the East Londoners will demand at least £100million for their star man.

Should they want a cheaper alternative they could look to Italy.

Man United have long been linked with Lazio midfielder Milinkovic-Savic.

And amid a reported rift with boss Maurizio Sarri, the Serbian could be on the move.

According to Calciomercato, United's interest is the 'most concrete' of any of Milinkovic-Savic's potential suitors.

The 26-year-old is also being courted by the likes of Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

Lazio have previously demanded around £60m for their star midfielder.

But that fee could fall amid his rumoured falling out with Sarri.

Despite this alleged rift, Milinkovic-Savic has been in good form this term.

The burly 6ft 3in ace has scored seven goals while laying a further seven assists in 19 Serie A appearances this term.

He bagged a double in a 3-3 draw with Empoli last time out.
