Is Milinkovic-Savic good enough for Juventus when he does not perform in Europe?

March 18, 2023 - 9:30 am

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is a long-term target of Juventus as the Bianconeri continue to trail the Serbian.

The end of this season is an important time in his career and we expect him to leave Lazio for a bigger club.

The Biancocelesti have tried their best to get him on a new deal, but it seems the midfielder is leaving.

This has alerted Juve and they could make a move for him when the term finishes.

However, is the midfielder worth the hype and can he deliver for the Bianconeri in Europe?

Lazio has just been eliminated from the Europa Conference League by AZ Alkmaar of the Netherlands and SMS did poorly.

The midfielder made a mistake that led to a goal, yet another performance that makes Calciomercato question if he is worth all the noise around him.

In 49 appearances in European competition, the midfielder has produced seven goals and four assists.

He has even picked up more yellow cards than goals and assists combined, making it hard to justify why Lazio has always asked for big money.

Juve FC Says

SMS is a good player, but the midfielder lacks the required impact in European football to be a regular at Juventus.

This means he probably is not the answer to our midfield problem and if we add him to our group, he might struggle in Turin.

    Make no mistake – SMS is a world class player who can cover any midfield position. ” Lacks the required impact in European football?” Oh really? Last time I checked he played for a team who is firing way over it`s potential largely thanks to a master coach called Sarri. SMS is not exactly sorrounded by world class talent. Sure he had a bad gake againt AZ but to expect him to drag that team through to the final while also playing every weekend in the Serie A and thus conclude that he lacks europen impact and is not the answer to our midfield is at best childish. SMS at 50% percent is much better than all our midfielders. Calciomercato and the other knucklehead need crap to write about. Suggest they find better things to write about.

    Yes, he is. But he’s getting older and is he worth a lot of money. Now, yes. In 3-4 yes, no.

    @Uncle Petter, nahh! He’s not that good. You’re just mad because of Allegri is still in charge.

      Even SMS would do well under Allegri. And yes he is that good.
