Agent clarifies Reds interest in midfielder and no deal yet

Manchester United have yet to agree a deal for Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic with his agent claiming such reports are premature.

Jose Mourinho has put at least one new midfielder on his wanted list as Michael Carrick is set to move on, while there are still doubts over the futures of Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini.

Milinkovic-Savic has been heavily linked and reports in the media over the weekend suggested United and Lazio have agreed an £80million summer deal for the midfielder after a conclusion in talks last week.

However according to the players agent Mateja Kezman, no talks have taken place as all parties concern themselves with seeing the season out.

"Lazio have three big games to go and nobody has talked about any negotiations at this moment," Kezman said. "The Biancocelesti have the opportunity to get their best result of recent years by qualifying for the Champions League.

"It's only normal there is enormous interest in Sergej between some top European clubs, but we do not have any agreement with any club."

Mourinho is friends with Kezman as he played under the Portuguese for Chelsea and remains in contact with him, which is helping to add fuel to the fire.
