Milinkovic-Savic: “Juventus are a great team”

June 29, 2018

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic believes Juventus are “a great team” but his future will depend on the Claudio Lotito and Igli Tare.

The versatile Lazio midfielder ended his World Cup run when Brazil eliminated Serbia from the competition, leaving him free to decide on his future.

“Now I’m going back home to Lazio where I have a contract,” Milinkovic-Savic told reporters.

“Then we’ll see whether I stay or go, it depends on President Lotito and sporting director Tare. I’ll talk to them, the €150m asking price isn’t a burden, it’s a motivation to do better.

“Every day I see links to a different team, it’s a motivation. Juve are a great team, at the top in Italy, you can see that from Scudetti and Coppe Italia in their trophy cabinet.

“Plus my little brother is in Turin, even if I’ll have to see what he does. He wants to play more, but Sirigu is a great goalkeeper.

“It’s not like I’ll follow my brother though! But family is important to me.

“To the Lazio supporters I’d say that I’ve spent three beautiful years there and they’ll remain in my heart, now we’ll see if I stay or go.”

Sky Sport Italia report that Lazio are still insisting on their €150m valuation  of the player and this may well rule Juventus out of the running.
