Milinkovic-Savic worth more than Pogba, says Lazio president

Lazio president Claudio Lotito claimed midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is worth more than Manchester United's Paul Pogba, stating the Serbian is "much stronger".

The Red Devils initially earmarked him as a replacement for Marouane Fellaini but, when the Belgium global stayed put, they eased off.

According to the same story, Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid are all keen on signing the midfielder this summer.

Manchester United, however, remain favourites to sign him in the long term amid uncertainty over Pogba's future.

Barcelona want to sign the France worldwide and Mino Raiola, Pogba's agent, has given them encouragement.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with a move for the Serbia worldwide throughout the summer window, but it now seems as though the Red Devils could be set to make a fresh move to try and land him this week.

"Up until now, no one has put themselves forward", Lotito claimed.

"Of course I do not want to sell, but if you asked me how much he is worth, I will remind you that a year ago I refused a €110 million offer".

Barcelona have already had a bid rejected by Manchester United for Pogba this week and the final few days of the transfer window are set to be extremely interesting for observers of the Old Trafford outfit. Unfortunately, right now we are dreaming about a player who is worth so much it is not possible for us.

Meanwhile, United legend Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has urged United to keep Pogba.

After being compared to Zinedine Zidane, he said: "That comparison can only flatter me".

"That just shows how far the kid has come".

There is plenty of Manchester United gossip doing the rounds in the papers with the English giants linked with a whole host of star names ahead of deadline day.
