Al-Hilal have lodged a large offer for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, and he and the club are seriously mulling it. The Saudi club has met Lazio’s price tag, something the other suitors have been unwilling to do this summer, Gianluca Di Marzio informs.
The player will have the final say on the matter but is inclined to accept. Juventus have been after him for at least a year, but they aren’t close now. Their interest waned after coming to terms on an extension with Adrien Rabiot. They need to sell either Paul Pogba or a few outcasts to leave to make room for him.
According to Alfredo Pedullà, Al-Hilal tendered €40M for Milinkovic-Savic. The deal has to go through the Saudi authorities, but the finish line is near. Despite some reports, there was no meeting with the Old Lady to negotiate on the horizon.
Per La Repubblica, the star midfielder has been proposed €20M net per year. He’s keen on agreeing. The transfer will proceed quickly once it happens.
Our Take on Al-Hilal and Milinkovic-Savic
It’d be a boon for Lazio, which would have lost him either this summer or even worse next year gratis, and obviously for his wallet. Instead, it’d be a great loss for Serie A and the teams hoping to scoop him up at a discount later in the summer.
