The big one for Manchester United at the moment is 22 year old Sergej Milinković-Savić. He remains of very strong interest to the Old Trafford side and Mourinho is a big fan. Although Lazio quite rightly won’t sell this January they will listen to offers in the summer and this could create a bidding war between United and City who are also rumoured to be interested. The Lazio man has received glowing reports and will be high on Mourinho’s wish list.
Jean-Michael Seri of Nice has been linked recently but we are unaware of any strong interest from United. He’s not the biggest of chaps and doesn’t quite fit into what one would deem a Mourinho type player. We’re putting this one down as standard BS.
The Sanchez deal is still dragging on, purely due to paperwork and geographical logistics. Why agents can’t do everything on e-mail and “verisign” these days is beyond us. Nonetheless, it’s happening and is a case of when and not if.
Daley Blind remains of interest to Real Madrid but no approach has been made yet. This is yet another deal that could well wait until the summer.
Also, despite some reports out there, there is zero interest in Leicester City’s Mahrez from Manchester United.
