Lazio Linchpin in Limbo Between Juventus and Inter

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic could leave Lazio as there’s no renewal on the horizon, but Juventus and Inter will have to be patient, as Lazio’s request is hefty. The two Derby d’Italia rivals inquired about the Serbian ace, but the Biancocelesti replied with a €40M price tag, Gianluca Di Marzio informs.

Despite the rumored interest, there have been no bids yet. Instead, the capital side made an attempt for Nicolò Rovella, but the Bianconeri rebuffed it. They turned their attention toward PSV’s Joey Veerman to bolster their midfield.

According to Alfredo Pedullà, Juventus and Inter are waiting in the wings for Milinkovic-Savic due to correlated matters. The Old Lady’s chase hinges on whether Adrien Rabiot will leave or not. They tendered a renewal and haven’t gotten a firm answer yet. Instead, the Nerazzurri are keener on Davide Frattesi, also due to economic reasons.

Lazio could eventually lower their demand and settle for €30M plus €5M add-ons. The midfielder is willing to join the Bianconeri even though they won’t play in the Champions League next season. If things progressed in the right direction, the two teams could orchestrate a multi-player deal. The Biancocelesti wish to retain Luca Pellegrini. Instead, the Turin-based side wouldn’t mind shipping off outcast Denis Zakaria, Corriere della Sera relays.

Our Take on Milinkovic-Savic, Juventus, and Lazio

It’s likely going to be the summer of his much-awaited departure, but it will take a while before it comes together given his club’s stubbornness. The problem for them is that the big spenders prefer younger players. They will probably have to settle for less, as keeping him on an expiring deal would be too risky.
