Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has opened the door to leaving Lazio this summer and admitted he’s flattered by the interest in him.

Jose Mourinho is believed to be keen on the Serbian, who is valued at around £100million by Lazio.

United plan on signing at least one midfielder this summer to replace the retiring Michael Carrick and could sign a second if Marouane Fellaini decides against signing a new deal.

Milinkovic-Savic, 22, has scored 11 goals and set-up six so far this term and he’s hinted he could consider leaving Lazio this summer.

‘It’s nice when people are talking about me,’ said Milinkovic-Savic.

‘But I don’t place too much importance on these things. I’m happy at Lazio and am feeling good here for now, but then we will have to see.’

Mourinho has confirmed he’s happy with his attacking options following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez and he’ll look at adding to his defence once at least one midfielder is signed.

The United board are expected to hand Mourinho in the region of £150m to add to his squad.
