Good morning Man Utd fans

Manchester United have suffered a blow in their pursuit of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to reports.

The 28-year-old Serbian, whose contract runs until 2024, has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford for a number of years.

But a transfer away from Lazio has never materialised and he has racked up 306 appearances for the Serie A side, scoring 62 goals.

In the summer, he was once again thought to be the subject of interest from United.

However, now Erik ten Hag’s men have serious competition when it comes to his signature.

According to reports, Juventus will make an offer for the player in the January window.

United are one of the European giants reportedly set to earn millions from the Qatar World Cup.

Fifa will pay clubs £9,000 per player for each day they spend in the Middle East – including preparation time.

United and Chelsea are set to profit massively from Fifa’s Club Benefits Programme.

The Red Devils could have around 18 players at the tournament.

Meanwhile, Sunderland’s new head of professional development Graeme Murty has been forced to explain why on-loan United youngster Amad Diallo turned out for the U21s on Monday night.

The Ivorian international moved to the Stadium of Light on a season-long loan back in August, but has only made six appearances in the Championship – five of those from the bench.

The former Atalanta ace has struggled to make an impact, and yesterday was part of the U21 side that lost 1-0 to Leeds
