Manchester United have been linked with a shock move for former Manchester City defender Stefan Savic, reports talkSPORT.
The 23-year-old centre-back endured a torrid time at the Etihad Stadium, after moving to England from Partizan Belgrade in a £6million deal in 2011.
He lasted just one year with the Citizens before being shipped out to Fiorentina as part of a player-plus-cash transfer that brought the promising Matija Nastasic to the Premier League.
Nastasic - when fit - has impressed alongside Vincent Kompany at the heart of Manchester City's defence, suggesting that it was a smart piece of business.
However, Savic has enjoyed something of a renascence in Serie 'A', and Italian publication Tuttosport now suggests that Red Devils boss David Moyes is planning a bid to bring the Montenegrin international to Old Trafford in the summer.
With Manchester United on the lookout for a replacement for the soon-to-be departing Nemanja Vidic, the Premier League champions allegedly made contact with Fiorentina about a proposed move for Savic before letting Anderson move to Stadio Artemio Franchi on loan.
La Viola were reluctant to part with the defender, who has made nearly 50 league appearances for Vincenzo Montella's side, but could reopen negotiations at the end of the season.
