Milinkovic-Savic is understood to be a long-term target for Mourinho, but the attacking midfielder only recently signed a new deal with Lazio and is unsure whether he is still on the Red Devils’ radar.
“I am a Lazio player but it’s obvious that I was pleased that a coach of his stature came to watch the match,” he is quoted as saying by The Sun.
“I read a little bit everywhere he was here at the stadium to see me play but that doesn’t mean anything. Maybe he was not here for me, but for someone else.”
Mourinho to personally scout Milenkovic?
