Manchester United have launched an £89.3m bid to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic but Lazio are ready to hold out for closer to £107m for the midfielder, according to reports in Italy via TeamTalk.

Calciomercato are reporting today that United are set to make the Lazio midfielder their number one target with a bid of an eye watering £138m being suggested as the fee needed to prize the Serbian away from the Italian capital.

Jose Mourinho has spent most of pre-season in a haze of anger due to the clubs lack of transfer activity but there is still time for the wallet to be opened.

According to Rome-based newspaper Il Messaggero, Milinkovic-Savic is the player Mourinho wants and he has already tasked Jorge Mendes with working on a deal.

The Serbian midfielder enjoyed a fine World Cup in Russian Federation for his nation and has caught the eye of several clubs, including Serie A rivals Inter and Milan, along with the Premier League duo of Manchester United and Chelsea.

Man City vs Arsenal is the EPL game of the weekend
Arsenal's director of high performance, Darren Burgess, has provided an insight into Arsenal's training in pre-season. The Spanish manager took charge of Arsenal just a few months ago as Arsene Wenger's replacement.

"I'm happy to be back", the midfielder said. Following his exploits for the club, the 23-year old gave a good account of himself in the 2018 FIFA World Cup with Serbia, impressing with his strength and attacking intent.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with a move for the Serbia worldwide throughout the summer window, but it now seems as though the Red Devils could be set to make a fresh move to try and land him this week.

The Bianconeri have been further bolstered by the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid - and the Serbian believes that the arrival of the Portuguese legend will benefit the whole division.

And now, United are looking to rush through with a late offer to try and land the midfielder, as they look to build a squad capable of fighting rivals Manchester City for the Premier League title.
