Manchester United are not interested in signing Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic this summer, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly not interested in signing Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic.

The Red Devils are said to be keen to bring a new defender to the club during this summer's transfer window and have been strongly linked with a move for the 23-year-old.

A recent report claimed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were the favourites to sign the Serbia international, who is unlikely to sign a new deal with Fiorentina, meaning that he could be sold this summer.

However, according to The Express, Man United are not interested in signing Milenkovic as they have other targets in mind ahead of the opening of the transfer window.

The club's need for a new central defender would be strengthened if Eric Bailly were to leave in the upcoming market, with reports claiming that the Ivory Coast international is ready to turn down a new deal at Old Trafford.

Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof have been the team's first-choice centre-backs this season, but Axel Tuanzebe has struggled for action, while Phil Jones remains on the sidelines with a long-term knee injury.
