Transfer Talk: Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to replace Paul Pogba at Old Trafford?
From ESPN - April 16, 2018

Clubs are slowly turning their eyes toward the summer window; Transfer Talk has the updates on all the latest rumours.

Is Pogba on his way out of Old Trafford?

Could it be the end of the Manchester United road for record signing Paul Pogba?

Yes, according to the Mail, which reports that United boss Jose Mourinho "is ready to let Pogba leave in a sensational move in the summer."

The report says Mourinho "has run out of patience" with France international Pogba and "included him on a list of players who can be sold as he attempts to close the gap on champions Manchester City."

The newspaper claims Pogba's relationship with his manager "has deteriorated rapidly this season" but adds that Old Trafford executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward "will be reluctant to part with such a marquee figure so quickly" after his 89 million return from Juventus in 2016.

Meanwhile, the Mail says Mourinho is stepping up his interest in Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

United scouts "checked on Milinkovic-Savic," valued by his club at almost 90 million, as Lazio lost to Red Bull Salzburg in the Europa League last week.

The Serbia international, 23, may not have had one of his better games that night -- but his form over the season has been impressive and he has scored 11 goals.

However, an element of uncertainty continues to surround the future of forward Marcus Rashford after reports earlier this month suggested he was growing frustrated by a lack of regular first-team starts.

The Sun says Rashford "is set to delay talks over a new United deal" with two years remaining on his current contract, adding that the fact Mourinho is set for a busy summer has complicated matters.
