Bidding war on the horizon for Juve and Man United target Milinkovic-Savic

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic could leave Lazio for €70m in the summer, but President Claudio Lotito hopes for a bidding war involving clubs interested, including Juventus and Manchester United.

Milinkovic-Savic is the best midfielder in Serie A this season, thanks to his ten assists and nine goals in 33 league games. No other midfielder has contributed to more goals this term. His agent Mateja Kezman, a former Chelsea striker, was at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday and according to Il Messaggero, he has informed the club about offers worth €65m for the 27-year-old.

According to Italian transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà, Lazio’s minimum asking price is €70m. Juventus and Manchester United are among the clubs interested in the Serbia international, but PSG are also believed in the race to sign him.

As per La Gazzetta dello Sport, Lotito sees a bidding war on the horizon and hopes that clubs interested in his star would pay up to €100m to secure his services in the summer.

Maurizio Sarri is resigned to losing the talented midfielder and has targeted his former player Allan (now at Everton) as the No.1 target to replace Milinkovic-Savic.

  1. Juve can’t compete financially with large EPL teams. Only way he moves to Juve, is a players will situation, however I just don’t see him willing to play for Allegri

  2. With everyone saying he is not going to Juve, then here are 3 reasons he could: Perin, Rugani and Rovella. Players Lazio could very well use. Lazio is losing 2 keepers this summer, so Perin is good as either starter or backup. We are also losing possibly all of Acerbi (who could also go to Juve – he is unpopular with Lazio ultras and seemingly has told his agent he wants to leave), Patric (contract runs out), and Luiz Felipe (contract runs out). So Rugani is a perfect fit along with Romagnoli (if that happens) in central defence. And then Lucas Leiva’s contract is running out, and he is getting old, while Cataldi’s performances are all over the place (both good and bad), so Rovella fits in rotation to Cataldi.

    If Juventus can put up with Lotito for long enough, then SMS and Acerbi might well be moving to that end of Turin, while Lazio get those 3 mentioned, and likely also Bernardeschi (or at least I hope) on a free transfer.
