Man United: Timeline Set For Midfielder's Arrival- Summer Addition Backed To Steer United To Glory

Good day, Red Devil. Here are the most recent updates from Old Trafford.

Is there ever a time when Sergej Milinkovic-Savic's name isn't linked with a move to Old Trafford? Since Pogba was on the verge of joining Real Madrid in 2019, the Serbian has been linked as the midfielder who can provide United's midfield with what Pogba couldn't provide during his time at the club.

Last summer, while all eyes were on Frankie de Jong, the Italian media backed the Lazio man to move to the Premier League, with Old Trafford being his preferred destination. As you are aware, United did not sign De Jong or Savic, as they did Casemiro.

While Savic and De Jong's styles of play are very similar in terms of possession, Casemiro's style is more defensive. Ten Hag values possession, and with De Jong openly rejecting United, Savic could be United's top midfielder target. About Savic, WAFU writes, "Manchester United a ‘possible destination’ for Serbian midfielder in summer of 2023." In 9 games this season, Savic has already managed 5 assists and 2 goals.

Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman has backed his compatriot Erik Ten Hag to succeed at Old Trafford. "He likes to play attacking football and with some good signings and time, he will bring United back to the top of the Premier League," said the former Barca boss.

"You need time as a coach. I think United understands that they have to give Erik that time and then United will come back. I’m sure of that."
