According to Teamtalk, Manchester United are in pole position to sign Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic.

The contract of the Serbian international runs out in the summer of 2022 and Fiorentina expects the 23 year old to leave this summer.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on signing a new defender to partner Harry Maguire and Milenkovic has been identified as an ideal partner for Maguire.

As per the Corriere Fiorentino, the Italians hope to bank “between €30-35m” for the former Partizan star, who has played more than 100 Serie A games for the Florence-based side.

Premier League sides Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are also said to be interested in the Serbian international.
