Manchester United transfer target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has set his sights on a move to Paris Saint-Germain this summer, despite being personally contacted by Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane. That’s according to a report in Le10 Sport, which claims Milinkovic-Savic wants to play alongside Kylian Mbappe and Neymar next season.
United could be set to miss out on one of their transfer targets ahead of the upcoming window.
The Red Devils have reportedly been sniffing around the 25-year-old, who appears set to leave Lazio.
Manchester City and Madrid are also interested in the Serbian midfielder, but it is PSG who have made the first move.
Le10 Sport claims PSG have made an opening bid of £53million for the central midfielder, but are expected to have to up that price significantly.

And Milinkovic-Savic apparently wants to join the French champions, partly due to Mbappe and Neymar.
The Serbian is said to be keen on playing behind the two megastar forwards, and is hopeful that Lazio can agree terms with PSG.
PSG have been busy already ahead of the summer transfer window, having confirmed the signing of Mauro Icardi on a permanent basis.
The Argentine had spent the season on loan from Inter Milan, scoring 12 goals in 20 Ligue 1 games.

PSG had the option to sign him permanently for £62m, but instead negotiated with the Italian giants and agreed terms over an initial £45m with £6m in add-ons.
However, it appears their transfer business isn’t finished, as Leonardo has apparently contacted Milinkovic-Savic to try and complete a deal.
Real Madrid boss Zidane made contact with the midfielder recently, according to Le10 Sport, and he is interested in heading to La Liga.
But his desired destination is still PSG, with United and City seemingly way out of the picture.

United’s interest in Milinkovic-Savic is reportedly contingent on Paul Pogba’s future, with PSG also said to be interested in the Frenchman.
Pogba has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, though club officials believe the player’s agent is the only man pushing for a move.
Mino Raiola reportedly wants the 26-year-old to seal a move to Madrid, and if he does it could lead to PSG winning the race for Milinkovic-Savic.
