If Paris Saint-Germain wants to sign Lazio’s Sergej Milinković-Savić for next season, they now know how much they’ll have to pay to complete the deal.
After having a bid of €60 million turned down, Le10Sport reports that Lazio is looking for €85 million in order to part ways with their 25-year-old midfielder and that they would prefer to wait until after the season to close any potential deal as they’re challenging for the Serie A title (second place) and qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League.
The report also claims that PSG will have to compete with Manchester United and Real Madrid for the signature of the Serbian but the Ligue 1 champions may have the advantage. With two of the world’s best footballers in the squad, Milinković-Savić is said to be intrigued by the prospect of lining up with Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr.
This transfer rumor has been a roller coaster in recent months but it does seem like it’s coming to a boiling point. If the report is accurate, Leonardo, PSG’s sporting director, will have to decide if Milinković-Savić is worth the price or move on to another target.
