Lazio Lowers the Price of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to IDR 1.2 Trillion

LAZIO are reportedly ready to release midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic for 80 million euros or around IDR 1.2 trillion in the transfer market next summer.

Quoted from football-italy, on Monday (28/3) Lazio President Claudio Lotito fenced off the player for 120 million euros (around Rp. 1.8 trillion) but no club was willing to redeem Milinkovic-Savic.

According to Italian newspaper Il Messaggero, now the situation has changed and the club needs a lot of fresh funds to meet the needs of coach Maurizio Sarri who wants to bring in several new players next summer.

Lazio are believed to be ready to sell Milinkovic-Savic for 80 million euros this summer. Moreover, the Serbian player’s contract will expire in June 2024 and a contract extension is deemed impossible.

Currently, it is believed that there are at least five clubs interested in signing Milinkovic-Savic namely Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus and Inter.

Even so, Lazio prefers to let Milinkovic-Savic out of Italy to avoid strengthening their rival team, besides, it is believed Juventus and Inter will find it difficult to pay for the 27-year-old player’s price.

This makes PSG, Manchester United and Real Madrid the favorites to be able to bring Milinkovic-Savic in the transfer market next summer.

Milinkovic-Savic is now at the peak of his career after this season he managed to score 8 goals and 10 assists in 29 games for Lazio in various competitions.

Previously, Milinkovic-Savic came from KRC Genk to Lazio in August 2015 for a fee of 12 million euros or around IDR 188 billion including bonuses. So far, he has made 286 appearances for Lazio and contributed 55 goals and 49 assists. (OL-8)
