Agent confirms Man United are chasing for 22-year-old Serie A sensation

September 20, 2017

According to the former Chelsea star Mateja Kezman, who is the agent of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, has confirmed that Manchester United and Manchester City are among the clubs showing an interest in sealing the transfer of his client.

The 22-year-old Milinkovic-Savic has shone in Serie A and is also believed to be on the radars of Real Madrid and Inter Milan, though his representative did not specify precisely which ones.

Lazio ace has long been regarded as one of the most exciting young talents in the Italian top flight, having made the move to the Stadio Olimpico in 2015.

The talented Serbian has since become a key player for Lazio, earning links to a number of Premier League clubs in the last couple of years.

And now, Kezman revealed that both Manchester clubs, along with other European heavyweights, are keeping close tabs on his client.

He said: ‘There’s been a lot of interest from several clubs, such as those in Madrid, Manchester and Milan. But he wants to be happy, to play to keep growing and become one of the best in his role.

‘It’s difficult to see him away from Lazio, where he has started the season very well, but I can’t rule out him leaving.

‘If Milinkovic-Savic keeps this up, there will be plenty of contact from different clubs, like there was (in the summer transfer window).

‘We’ll see what happens but, for now, what matters is that he’s growing under (Simone) Inzaghi, who’s a great coach.’
