Lazio star midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been linked with a move to England, and Manchester United appear to be the front-runners to sign him if the chance arises.

Real Madrid have to make a decision on whether they will target Thibaut Courtois or Kepa to replace Keylor Navas, and recent reports have indicated they are leaning towards making a push for the Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper.
