Sergej Milinkovic-Savic worth more than Pogba - Lotito

Real Madrid and Juventus are both reportedly eyeing Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the remaining three weeks of the transfer window, with Real in particular seeking to strengthen in midfield after the departure of Mateo Kovacic and rumours surrounding Luka Modric.

The Red Devils initially earmarked him as a replacement for Marouane Fellaini but, when the Belgium global stayed put, they eased off.

The Italian champions want to make sure that there are no Premier League clubs involved in the transfer chase once they decide to approach Lazio for Milinkovic-Savic.

However, with recent talks of Barcelona plotting a move for club record signing Paul Pogba, a new central midfielder might be something that Jose and the club would want to bring in.

The Italian publication says United have now formalised their interest by tabling an opening £89.3m offer but Lazio president Claudio Lotito is determined to squeeze more out of the Manchester giants and is demanding closer to £107m.

"Sergej is the best young player on the world scene, with huge potential", Lotito told Corriere della Sera .

"So far no one has come forward".

"Of course I do not want to sell, but if you asked me how much he is worth, I will remind you that previous year I refused a €110 million offer".

They could, however, wait until after that deadline to offload Pogba, with Premier League sides still free to sell to foreign clubs until the end of the month, when the rest of European's big leagues close the transfer window. Unfortunately, right now we are dreaming about a player who is worth so much it is not possible for us.

Juventus, the club Pogba played for in between his two stints at Old Trafford, are said to be keen to have him back.
