Manchester United make record bid for fiorentina star

It is reported that Manchester United have made Fiorentina an offer of around £53 million to secure the services of their talented defender Nikola Milenkovic.

Jose Mourinho was the personal scour of the 21-year-old while he was playing for the Serbian national team this week and he became very interested in the player that reached out to United immediately and asked them to make a bid, according to La Nazione, as translated by Metro.

The report indicates that United have now offered £53 million for Milenkovic, which would make him the the club record defender for the Red Devils if the deal goes through.

That record is currently £31 million held by Victor Lindelof when he was brought in by Mourinho last year, according to the club’s transfer section on Wikipedia.

The young man has featured in just 24 Serie A games so far, but he certainly seems to be one of the most promising talents that is coming up in Europe in his position, which is also a position in United that needs a lot of improvement as soon as possible.
