Will there ever be a season where we aren’t linked to this guy?

Even with Pogba going he wouldn’t fit because the compatibility in midfield wouldn’t work with Fernandes. Thats the story for basically any sort of attacking no.8 who needs a bit of a free roam place.

That Lazio president still hasn't given up on fleecing us for this guy after all. Offer them 30m euros at best.

Seems like a player that is always available but no one seems to buy.

Does he fit the ETH style? I don’t think he does

i feel like this is agent talk and they’re trying to shift him for big money

He kinda does but more as the player behind the striker...

I think it could work, but again, your priorities should be elsewhere

From what I've seen and the majority of this season, he's more the box-to-box midfielder. Lucas is holding and Alberto is the creative?

Yeah, but basically him and Luis Alberto are both attacking mids. As i said, it can work, don't think fit would be that big of an issue as he's quite good defensively, though ideally you don't want him doing too much defending

So in every recent FM Liverpool sign this guy for about 70 million and he’s dubbed “world class midfielder” and he does very well for them as a box to box. Take from that what you will. If the manager wants him then why not. To my mind he’s always been a more physical less mercurial Pogba type. Good age. Looking to take the next step. Utd fan.

I don't think there's anyone we've ever been linked to more often - I think this one started when he was about seven years old!

I think he'd be a great fit alongside Fred + a DM in a midfield 3 but there's just no role or him in a side built around Bruno Fernandes.

Ah the annual SMS thread, was looking out for it. Oh well, we needed a replacement for the Sneijder to United thread, or is there still life in that yet?

Hows he doing lately ? Any regular Serie A watchers ? I get the obvious trolls but that seems to because of the never ending links every summer.

Load nonsense I reckon.

This chap is a month younger than me and I just can't square that away in my head.

Don't sign.

Brother of ex United reserve goalkeeper, and current Serbia international Vanja Milinković-Savić (massive United fan).

His bro might be but he certainly isn't, this is what he has said in the past:

"I have dreamed of playing for Real Madrid since I was a child. This is my career goal and I hope to be able to achieve it," Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has told Serbian TV Nova.
"To tell the truth, I would have preferred to face Real Madrid [in the Champions League last 16] to swap shirts with some players. I think, however, that we can have a good match against Bayern," the Serbian added.

Getting some serious flashbacks seeing his name popup in the transfer forum again.

Still the best midfielder in the league by a lot

As a Serbian I only look Lazio's matches
at sofascore to see if he has a goal or an assist, and he often does. That being said, he never impressed me playing for national team, so I'd say we should pass, plus it's BS anyway...

Was only a matter of time before the Pogba replacement nonsense came out

Another crapper ala Pogba. We need players with serial winner mentality. Not these guys who play for themselves.

He is actually very good, underrated on here. But with Bruno, it makes no sense, as he should occupy that position.
