GOOD MORNING UNITED FANS
Manchester United are reportedly still firmly in the hunt for Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic.
Milenkovic’s current deal with Fiorentina is due to expire next June and it does not appear he will be penning an extension, making a summer exit likely.
Man United’s interest in the Serbia international had thought to have cooled but according to La Nazione, the Red Devils are still keen on a deal for the defender.
Elsewhere on the transfer front, United have fallen behind Liverpool in the race for Raphinha, according to journalist Gianluigi Longari.
The Leeds United ace has enjoyed an excellent first season in the English top-flight. He has thrived under Marcelo Bielsa and has seen his value skyrocket in recent months.
His performances have attracted the attention of some of the league’s top teams, including Manchester City.
Leeds are not ready to part ways with their star man and with a number of clubs in the fray, the deal is far from straightforward.
However, the Red Devils are reportedly prepared to offer a massive sum of €80 million [£68.8million] in order to sign Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid in the summer transfer window.
According to a report from Spanish publication El Gol Digital, United are plotting a summer raid on La Liga champions Atletico Madrid for the transfer of midfielder Saul Niguez.
Saul’s stock is high in the footballing community, as evidenced by the interest he is courting from Barcelona.
