Manchester United are looking to get a star midfielder into their side in the summer, and they feel that the main player that they have targeted could be on his way to Old Trafford.

With Marouane Fellaini’s future under the clouds and Michael Carrick retiring, United are in the market for a stand-out midfielder, and they have long identified Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as the star player to come in to the setup.

And it is believed that the club is leading the race to sign the Serbian. According to a report in Metro, the 23-year-old is interested to join the Mancunian club in order to play alongside his national teammate, Nemanja Matic.
