Manchester United have a 25% chance of signing defender Nikola Milenkovic – report

Manchester United have a 25% chance of signing Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic.

The Italian newspaper, Tuttosport, suggests that Man United are not favourites for the transfer of Milenkovic, who has drawn great interest from a number of great clubs in the past year.

United manager Jose Mourinho was thought to be watching Milenkovic when he attended Serbia’s fixture against Montenegro in the recent international break.

Tuttosport, however, relays the information that United aren’t the only possible suitors of Milenkovic. The defender is also being watched by German champions Bayern Munich and Serie A’s dominant side Juventus.

The latter want Ajax centre-back Matthijs de Light but could be put off by the extent of competition for the Dutchman. That has led them to focus on Milenkovic.

Tuttosport claims that Juventus are the favourites for Milenkovic’s signature and rate their chances of bringing him to Allianz Stadium at 35%. Bayern Munich are also given those chances.

United, on the other hand, are said to have only a 25% chance of taking Milenkovic away from Serie A and into English football. The remaining 5% are said to be left for any other club who could join a developing transfer battle.

Fiorentina reportedly know that it will be “hard to keep” Milenkovic next summer.
