As Paul Pogba is desperate for an exit, Solskjær and his team are eager to look for a replacement, and the perfect solutions seems to be Lazio’s Sergej Milinković-Savić.
The Red Devils have already secured the likes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace, along with Swansea City’s Daniel James.
However, following the depart of Ander Herrera, and a possible exit of Pogba, United are seemingly interested in the 24-year old Serbian midfielder, as his agent flew to London for transfer talks this Saturday.

Milinković-Savić was previously linked with a move to Old Trafford last year, but it didn’t turn out fruitful as the Rome based club were demanding a whopping £120million transfer fee.
However, after a mediocre 2018-19 season, and the Serbian’s wish to move out of Italy after four years, reports say Le Aquile may ask for around £80 million this time as a result.
He still managed to net the ball five times last season, and also scored in Lazio’s 2-0 win over Atalanta in 2019 Coppa Italia final.
Mino Raiola, after Paul Pogba’s agent claimed the Frenchman is ‘in the process’ of leaving United.
“Everyone within the club from the manager to the owner knows Paul’s wishes.
“Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on. We are in the process of that. Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are.” he told The Times.
