Milinkovic-Savic: ‘The Manchester United story is finished’

Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic says ‘the Manchester United story is finished’ after the transfer deadline for English clubs passed.

The Serbia international has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent seasons, with speculation again intensifying this summer that the 24-year-old could move to the Premier League.

United were believed to be interested in a big-money move to sign the Lazio star, though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side failed to make midfield additions before the deadline for English clubs on August 8.

After another summer of transfer speculation, Milinkovic-Savic has now said the ‘story’ of a move to United is ‘finished’, and insists he ‘wants for nothing’ and remains happy in the Italian capital.

“The Premier League transfer window is shut, so the Manchester United story is finished,” SMS told Serbian outlet Espreso.

“I wasn’t irritated by everything that was written in the papers, because my mind was concentrated on preparing for the new season in the best possible way.

“I am where I am and I want for nothing at Lazio. I don’t think much about the transfer market.

“All sorts of things were written about me, but I know where my mind is and who I have a contract with.”
