In a summer full of unexpected transfers AC Milan are making a final push to sign midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio.
According to Italian newspaper La Stampa, the name of Milinkovic-Savic remains at the top of AC Milan’s wish list. Technical director Leonardo denies, as he had already done with Higuain, but in reality he is trying. During yesterday’s conference the Brazilian admitted his appreciation for the Serbian midfielder.
La Stampta reports that Leo has contacted the player (and apparently he was not the only one of AC Milan to do so…) and continues to push for a loan deal of 40 million euros with the right to make the move permanent at the end of the season for an additional 80 million, thus bypassing the restrictions of the Financial Fair Play.
To find the necessary resources, however, in addition to Kalinic, Leonardo must also sell one between Andre Silva and Suso. The Spanish winger is a pillar of the squad while for the Portuguese striker the Rossoner are open to sell. The negotiation for Milinkovic-Savic is still open and should be resolved within a few days in one way or another. At the meantime, Lazio are trying to sign former Chelsea midfielder Ramires as Savic’s replacement.
