The 24-year-old Serbian defender signed a one-year contract extension with the Viola last August in order to ensure that he wouldn’t leave on a free transfer this summer, allowing the club to cash in before his deal expires in 2023. For years Milenkovic has been linked with a move to the Premier League but a stay in Italy is now looking increasingly likely.
Calciomercato.com details how Inter have made the most serious move for Milenkovic, meeting several times with his agent Fali Ramadani to discuss a possible deal. Everything now depends on their outgoing market and in particular Milan Skriniar’s possible sale to Paris Saint-Germain, which would open up both a move for the Serbian centre back and Torino star Gleison Bremer.
In the last few days, Juventus have also re-ignited their interest in the 24-year-old defender, preparing for the possible departure of Matthijs de Ligt. A transfer market Derby d’Italia is now being set up and things could explode next month.
