Jose Mourinho is purportedly a huge admirer of Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, owing to which he wishes to secure the player’s services in the upcoming transfer window.
Accordingly, the United representatives are believed to be satisfied, as the 22-year-old managed to find the back of the net twice from outside the box.

Italian outlets claim that the talented midfielder is being valued around €120 million by the Serie A club.
However, recently, the player conceded that he’s very content at Stadio Olimpico and is not looking forward for a move away from Lazio. Furthermore, gaffer Angelo Peruzzi insisted that Milinkovic-Savic is fully committed to his current side.
Speaking after playing his part in Lazio’s 2-2 draw with Atalanta, the central midfielder told Mediaset Premium: “I play for Lazio and I don’t care who came to watch me. I play for Lazio and I am happy here.”
Regardless, the former Genk man has his current contract extending up to June of 2022. Ergo, it remains clear that it’d be a rough ride for the United tactician to pursue the Vojvodina graduate.
However, provided the financial resources of the Old Trafford outfit, a certainty can’t be asserted regarding the future of the Serbian international.
