Chelsea transfer news Sergej Milinkovic Savic favours a move to Stamford Bridge over Manchester United

Milinkovic-Savic impressed at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer and his fine performances look set to land him a move to the Premier League.

Manchester United still retain an interest in him but have been sceptical about Lazio's eye watering asking price, and Chelsea have also been recently claimed to be eyeing a bid as Maurizio Sarri looks to raid Serie A.

Manchester United target, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, has expressed his desire to join Chelsea instead.

Milinkovic-Savic joined Lazio from Genk in 2015 and has developed in to one of the most sought-after players in European football after providing 14 goals and 9 assists to help his side finish fifth in the Serie A table last season - which saw them narrowly miss out on Champions League qualification.

However, Chelsea's chances of signing the midfielder could hinge on the club's ability to keep Eden Hazard.

The Serbian global midfielder is one of the most highly rated midfielders in Serie A and has attracted the attentions of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus in recent months.

Speaking after his first Chelsea game ended in a 1-0 friendly win over Perth Glory, the Italian coach said: "It's a pleasure to have Courtois, to have Willian, to have Hazard, but it (their futures) doesn't depend on me, not only on me".

The influential trio have yet to return for pre-season training as they recover from the World Cup, meaning new Blues manager Sarri must wait to discuss their futures.

"So, we have to wait".
