AC Milan have been linked to Sergej Milinkovic-Savic since last summer. Many rumors circulated the player’s future, with clubs from all over Europe interested in his signature. Franco Melli, a well known journalist who is very close to Lazio president Lotito, has revealed that the Rossoneri are very close to agreeing a €70 million deal for the Serbian.
Milinkovic-Savic is one of the best in Italy. He is a great midfielder, he can attack, defend, and score many goals. Last season was a great one for the 23 year-old, scoring 14 goals and assisting nine in 48 appearances in all competitions. The player caught the eyes of elite clubs, including AC Milan who are looking to recruit top players. In the past, many reports came out about Milinkovic-Savic’s links to Milan, though at the end nothing was made official. At the moment, the Lazio man is reportedly close to joining the club in January for a very high fee.
AC Milan are on the hunt for great reinforcements this new year. After securing the signing of Lucas Paqueta from Flamengo, the club are after many top players. The signing of Milinkovic-Savic will be a huge boost for the team who are currently in a poor run of form. He is arguably more talented than all the central midfielders in Milan, the former Genk man averages a rating of 7.01 every Serie A match. His amazing technique and dribbling would be perfect in supplying the whole team, especially Gonzalo Higuain just like he boosted Ciro Immobile.
This deal is great for AC Milan, though the question is how is it possible? The club need to sell Hakan Calhanoglu to pay an €8 million fee for Cesc Fabregas, so how will they be able to pay €70 million for Milinkovic-Savic? Until now, these details remain unknown, though confirmation on whether the deal will go through or not can come in less than two weeks. The deal will surely excite Milan fans, though Lazio supporters can be upset over the transfer. Everyone is eager to see what the player can do in a Milan shirt, he is expected to shine and to become one of the best in the world.
