Manchester United ‘bid £45m’ for Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic as alternative to Harry Maguire if move falls through

  • Manchester United are eager to sign dominant central defender this summer
  • Harry Maguire is preferred option but Manchester City are also interested
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are pursuing Nikola Milenkovic as an alternative 

Manchester United have ‘bid £45million’ for Fiorentina central defender Nikola Milenkovic. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to bring in Harry Maguire for £75m but is looking at back-up options in case that deal cannot be made. 

City are also interested in Maguire so the move for Milenkovic, according to reports in Italy via the Mirror, is as a secondary option.     

Manchester United have made an offer for Serbian defender Nikola Milenkovic 

The 6ft 5in defender has already made 14 appearances for Serbia and joined Serie A side Fiorentina from Partizan Belgrade two years ago. 

Milenkovic was a target for Juventus but they have since cooled their interest, making United front-runners to sign the 21-year-old. 

United are currently in Australia preparing for their first pre-season friendly against Perth Glory on Saturday with working continuing behind the scenes to renovate the squad before the new campaign.  

The Fiorentina centre-back is powerful and previously attracted interest from Juventus
