Manchester United is sure of edging Manchester City in the signing of the England centre back, with reports claiming club chiefs are optimistic they can thrash out a £75m deal for the former Hull City defender.
Manchester United has also contacted Fiorentina this week over 6ft 5ins giant centre-back Milenkovic.
