Milinkovic-Savic Hints at Departing Lazio Next Summer

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic denied having a quarrel with Maurizio Sarri after the Empoli match, but he also suggested that his time at Lazio might be coming to an end. The Serbian ace scored twice and provided an assist against the Tuscan Azzurri.

He stated in the post-match remarks: “I do not know where the rumors about me rowing with the coach came from. It was the talk of the town, but it lasted only for a couple of days. The next fixture proved that it was just nonsense. I would not be playing if I was not on good terms with Sarri. I would not have worn the captain’s armband when Ciro Immobile was out.” 

Milinkovic-Savic addressed his Lazio future in an interview with Serbian site Mozzart Sport: “I keep an eye on the transfer market, but I do not pay too much attention to it. The management did not let me go when there was a real offer for me in the past. I stayed, I extended my contract, and we started a new cycle together. Now I have two years left on it. We will see what will happen in the summer, how the club will be structured, and in what direction it is going. If need be, we will sit down and talk.”

According to, Italian teams would be priced out if Lazio decided to sell Milinkovic-Savic. It would take an offer north of €70M to sign him. Manchester United and PSG bid for him in the past.
