Stefan Savic joined Atletico Madrid back in 2015 from Fiorentina, as the player’s sturdy perseverance in Viola colours had caught the eyes of Los Indios boss Diego Simeone. In the next six years, Savic has managed to establish his authority with Atletico Madrid in a discerning manner, and due to such reason, the Argentine manager has always considered him as one of those inevitable figures in the defensive zone.
The Montenegrin international has done a commendable job as part of the Atleti backline and with 185 appearances across all competitions, the centre-back crafted a name for himself in La Liga.
Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been contemplating various options, as the Manchester United manager needs to be precise on his task to resolve the issues in the backline. The Red Devils have been thoroughly studying the transfer market.
In spite of an impressive venture in their Premier League campaign, indecisiveness has often haunted The Red Devils. Manchester United have also shortlisted Tyrone Mings of Aston Villa in their next summer transfer hunt.
Speaking of advancement, despite a supine commencement to this campaign, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co. have been thriving towards their task to reestablish their long lost authority. However, Manchester United’s curiosity does define the sheer ebullition of their scheme ahead of the summer transfer window, and with another option, Ole could minutely observe the scenarios.
The Norwegian manager is definitely aware of the fact that the defensive fragility would hamper their chances in those crucial spaces of the season, and as the circumstances reflect, a long-term addition remains the priority at the back.
