Juventus have agreement for Sergej Milinković-Savić ?

October 18, 2018

A report in Italy suggests that Juventus may have an agreement in place to sign Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinković-Savić.

The Serbian international was the subject of sustained interest from a number of European sides including Manchester United and Juve this summer but a transfer failed to materialise.

Lazio owner and President Claudio Lotito was adamant that he wouldn’t sell his prized asset for any less than €150m and subsequently renewed he Serb’s contract until 2023 while increasing his salary to €3m per season.

Despite this, a report from Italian journalist Luca Momblano suggests that outgoing Juventus director Beppe Marotta agreed a deal in principle with Lazio, through Sporting Sirector Igli Tare, to sign Milinkovic Savic from January 2019 at a fixed sum of €110m, payable over 3 years.

While it’s too early to lend too much credence to such a report, Momblano was significantly an important figure in the reporting of Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus in the summer and was the first in Italy to report the news.
