Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho has drawn up a shortlist of six high-profile names to replace retiring midfield general Michael Carrick.
Carrick confirmed that he will retire from football at the end of the season, prompting Mourinho to start the search for his replacement, while he is keen to find a player who will emulate the 36-year-old's influence rather than style of play.
United will face stiff competition for all targets on the list, with rivals Manchester City coming close to signing Fred during the January transfer window, although recent reports claimed the Red Devils may have the edge in the summer.
Jorginho's agent was reported to have been in Manchester during the international break, while both Manchester clubs and Liverpool are reported to be interested in the £35m-rated Italy international who has been likened to Xabi Alonso.
Barcelona meanwhile have also shown an interest in Jean-Michael Seri from French club Nice, while Milinkovic-Savic has emerged as one of Europe's hottest young properties this season
