In-Demand Lazio Midfielder Hints at Possible Departure Amid Reports of Juventus Interest

Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has admitted that he doesn’t know what the future holds amid reports of interest from Italian giants ​Juventus. The Serbian is on his way back to Rome after being knocked out of the World Cup and is set to have a discussion with Lazio president Lotito.

Milinkovic-Savic has become one of the most sought after players in Europe following an incredible season in Serie A. There’s a lot of interest in the youngster, namely from Juventus and the Premier League, but at this point anything could happen.

​Lazio have slapped a huge €150m asking price on the midfielder’s head, and the 23-year-old has now opened up on reports linking him with a move to a new club.

“Now I’m going back home to Lazio where I have a contract,” Milinkovic-Savic said, via Football Italia. “Then we’ll see whether I stay or go, it depends on President Lotito and sporting director [Igli] Tare. I’ll talk to them, the €150m asking price isn’t a burden, it’s a motivation to do better.

“Every day I see links to a different team, it’s a motivation. Juve are a great team, at the top in Italy, you can see that from Scudetti and Coppe Italia in their trophy cabinet.

“Plus my little brother [Vanja] is in Turin, even if I’ll have to see what he does. He wants to play more, but [Salvatore] Sirigu is a great goalkeeper. It’s not like I’ll follow my brother though! But family is important to me.
