Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has revealed he will decide 'where to continue' his career after the World Cup.
The Lazio midfielder has been heavily linked with a move away from the Stadio Olimpico following the Biancocelesti 's failure to qualify for the Champions League.
United have already agreed on a fee with Shakhtar Donetsk for Fred but will be in the market for another midfielder if, as expected, Marouane Fellaini leaves the club at the end of the month. Although Milinkovic-Savic is likely to prove too expensive.
The Serbian could command a club-record fee, particularly if he impresses at the World Cup, but the player's agent, Mateja Kezman, has previous with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea so the links will continue.
Regardless, the 23-year-old is not thinking about a move away. Not just yet anyway.
"I am trying to remain concentrated, even though every day I read something new about me," he told reporters ahead of Serbia's friendly clash with Bolivia.
"Obviously, I feel pressure on me and know that I’ll have to live with this situation throughout the World Cup. It’s the same pressure as when I play for Lazio, so I am accustomed to it.
"I will decide where to continue my career after the World Cup. There’s a very good atmosphere among the squad and it feels like I’ve been here for years. I can’t wait to start the tournament."
Milinkovic-Savic, who scored 15 goals in 48 games for Lazio last season, will play alongside United midfielder Nemanja Matic in Russia this summer.
