Lazio Powerhouse Once Again Rebuffs Interest from European Giants

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been on the radar on the radar of the top European clubs for years. However, nobody has ever matched the price tag slapped on him by Lazio. It looks like it will not happen this summer either, as the midfielder hopes to stay long-term.

He talked to the club’s site from their pre-season camp: “I feel like I am a leader now. This is my sixth season at Lazio, and I wish to have many more. I try to help out the youngsters coming through like the veterans did with me back in the day.”

“I feel well, we will see after the next few practices, they will surely be intense. We last trained together a month and a half ago, and I missed all of this. We are working a lot with the ball; something will change because of the new tactics of coach Maurizio Sarri. I am looking forward to it.”

While Milinkovic-Savic will stay at Lazio, Luis Alberto remains away from the team. Once, and if, he will be back, he will have to provide a credible explanation for his extended absence. His entourage leaked that he is rehabbing an injury, Lalaziosiamonoi informed.

Lazio could change their strategy given the controversy. They thought they would cash in on Joaquin Correa to bankroll their possible additions. They are now contemplating selling the Spanish midfielder instead, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs. Sarri admitted that the Argentinian striker asked out, but he will find a role for him if he reconsiders. The most likely landing spots for Alberto are Villarreal and Atletico Madrid, rather than Milan or Juventus.
