AC Milan have set their sight again on Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic Savic, a report from Spain claims.
During this period of international break AC Milan are concentrated on transfers. In addition to contract renewals, Maldini and Massara’s goal is obviously to make the Rossoneri team even more competitive. The possibility of playing the Champions League next season is concrete, and therefore the club knows very well that new signings are needed to do well in the most important European competition for clubs.
According to sensational reports from Fichajes.net, AC Milan are seriously interested in Sergej Milinkovic Savic. A return to the past for the Rossoneri who tried the sign the talented Lazio midfielder two years.
As recently admitted by Lazio sporting director, Igli Tare, AC Milan were very close to purchasing Milinkovic Savic for a record transfer fee of nearly €100 million. “Two years ago, we received a very important offer for Milinkovic-Savic in the last hours of the mercato. I raised my hands and left the ball to Lotito. It all depended on him. The president rejected the offer because he wanted to play in the Champions League”.
At that time negotiations were conducted by Leonardo and Maldini. AC Milan had offered 40 million to sign Milinkovic Savic initially on loan for two years and then pay an additional €60 million for his permanent transfer. Elliot were determined to invest 100 million for the Lazio star after having signed Higuain and Caldara earlier.
Now a possible swap between Romagnoli and Savic is being rumored. The Rossoneri captain has one year remaining in his contract with Milan and the Rossoneri are considering his sale this summer. The Italian defender is a Lazio fan since childhood. Offering Romagnoli plus cash could convince Lazio to sell Sergej Milinkovic Savic.
