Nikola Milenkovic ‘will push’ for Man United move if Reds make formal bid


Nikola Milenkovic

A recent report from Italy has linked Nikola Milenkovic with Premier League outfit, Manchester United.

Who is Nikola Milenkovic?

The now 23-year-old joined Fiorentina in the summer of 2017.

The centre-back left his home country of Serbia – where he had previously been plying his trade with FK Partizan Belgrade – for a reported fee of around £4.5m.

Milenkovic has since gone on to feature 120 times for the Serie A outfit, notching 10 goals in the process

The stopper has also managed 26 appearances for Serbia’s senior side since making his debut in 2018.

Milenkovic open to Manchester United move

And now, Milenkovic, whose current contract runs until 2022, appears to be attracting the interest of some big-name clubs.

A report from Italy earlier this month credited both Manchester United and Liverpool with an interest in the defender.

And now, a further transfer update on the promising talent has come to light.

According to Goal, citing Italian outlet Corriere Dello Sport, Milenkovic is open to a move to Manchester United.

It is suggested that, in the case that the Reds make a formal bid for his services, Milenkovic would push for the transfer.

In terms of a potential fee for the Serb, Fiorentina are expected to hold out for a sum in the region of £30m.

Given the fact that Milenkovic will have just one year left on his current deal come the summer, however, perhaps Man United, or any other interested party, could thrash out a deal for a slightly lower fee.

It is important to note that Milenkovic is right-footed, though, so he may not be the ideal partner for Harry Maguire should the Red Devils indeed pursue him, with it previously claimed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co. are in the market for a left-footed centre-back.
