Euro Paper Talk: Man Utd contact exciting Serie A star with big January deal on cards; Tottenham plan huge midfielder signing

Manchester United are leading the race to sign a top Serie A star after being quoted €25m, while Tottenham have plans to bolster their midfield with a top quality signing, according to Tuesday’s Euro Paper Talk.

MILENKOVIC WANTED BY MANCHESTER UNITED

Manchester United have been in contact with the agent of Nikola Milenkovic as talks over a January move gather pace.

The Serbia defender has set his heart on a move to the Premier League and looks likely to leave when the window opens.

According to La Nazione, La Viola are resigned to losing their towering centre-half next month. As such, they have stuck a €25m asking price – with no exceptions – on his head.

Milenkovic first emerged as a United target in the days of Jose Mourinho. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his scouts have continued to monitor his progress.

Milenkovic has made 103 appearances for Fiorentina since arriving from Partizan Belgrade in summer 2017. As well as being an accomplished defender, he has also chipped in with 10 goals in his time. Standing at 6ft 5in, he’s an obvious threat at set pieces.

Now with his deal set to expire in 18 months time, Fiorentina look ready to sell.

As per La Nazione, Tottenham have also expressed their interest.

But it’s United who appear in the driving seat with talks already well underway with his agent Fali Ramadami.

It’s claimed he’s ready to tell Fiorentina his client won’t be extending his deal in a bid to accelerate a January move to Old Trafford.
