However, Manchester United are ready to reach near to the demands of Sporting Lisbon, and are into the negotiations with the Portuguese club.

Alfredo Pedulla believe the Macedonian midfielder, 26, could sign his four-year deal and have it all confirmed as soon as tomorrow. The Portuguese global is calm over the Old Trafford switch and expects a swift resolution to seal his move away from Sporting Lisbon.

Reports have suggested that the North-West outfit are still to meet Sporting's valuation of the Portugal global, who contributed 20 goals and 13 assists from 33 league outings last season.

Lazio's sporting director Igli Tare has been having "ongoing contacts" with the Manchester club, whilst Milnikovic-Savic's agent, former Chelsea striker Mateja Kezman, is expected to join the discussions shortly.

This potential offer falls short of Sporting Lisbon's €70 million valuation of Fernandes, meaning Manchester United might have to table a bid worth a higher amount to land their man.

On a team level, the midfielder won both the Taça de Portugal and Taça da Liga (Portugal's FA and League Cup equivalents) with Sporting CP and lifted the inaugural Nations League for his country on home soil.

But the Manchester Evening News claim chiefs from the Portuguese club were meeting with Premier League champions Manchester City over a possible link between them.

Sporting are said to be resigned to selling their most prized asset before the end of the transfer window. Manchester City were initial favorites for his signature before turning their attentions to Rodri who they signed last week from Atletico Madrid.
