Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic says he does not care about scouts watching him play because he is happy at Lazio.

United have been linked with a move for the Serbia international, who has also reportedly attracted the attention of Manchester City and Juventus.

Already one of the most sought-after players in Europe, the 22-year-old midfielder enhanced his reputation with a first-half brace in Lazio's 3-3 draw at Atalanta in Serie A on Sunday amid reports representatives from United, Chelsea, Barcelona and Monaco were in attendance.

"These are two important goals, but I play for Lazio and I don't care who came to watch me," Milinkovic-Savic told Mediaset Premium.
