Since Charles De Ketelaere didn’t pan out in his first season, Milan will consider signing a new no.10 in the summer, and Stefano Pioli would love to reunite with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. The Rossoneri have had their best stretches while using a midfielder in that position, Franck Kessié or Ismael Bennacer, in the last two years.
Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Lazio star is highly likely to depart since his contract is up in 2024. There has been no progress on an extension. The Biancocelesti don’t want to sell him for too little despite the situation. However, €25/30M could be enough to convince them.
On the other hand, the Milan coach and execs will have to talk the ownership into spending for Milinkovic-Savic. RedBird Capital is keener on investing in younger players, while the Serb is 28. The conditio sine qua non for a lavish transfer window is qualifying for the Champions League.
Our Take on Milan and Milinkovic-Savic
It would be a perfect fit for the scheme, and his wages aren’t excessive. He has long been tipped to move to the Bianconeri, but they aren’t a very alluring destination considering their current state.
