United have contact with Milenkovic even after Mourinho’s dismissal
United continue negotiations with Fiorentina’s central defender Nikola Milenkovic, even after the dismissal of Jose Mourinho from his mentor’s post.
Mourinho personally traveled to watch at the 21-year-old performer’s performance in the match of the Serbia national team earlier this season, adding Nikola to his short-list of players to strengthen the center of defense in January.
The Red Devils parted with Mourinho last week, and it would seem that the club should make adjustments to its plans for the winter transfer window. However, the Italian newspaper La Repubblica claims that United have the most serious interest in Milenkovic.
According to the publication, Milenkovich is seen as a promising investment for the executive director of the Red Devils, Ed Woodward, who is continuing negotiations with Nikola’s agent during this Christmas period.
