Though he will wait for some time before making a decision
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic had garnered a reputation as one of the most talented young players on the planet by inspiring Serbia to victory at both the European Under-19 Championship, in 2013, and the Under-20 World Cup two years later. Then, after moving to Lazio in 2015, he justified the hype with a string of dynamic displays.
The midfielder joined the Italian side from the Belgian club Genk in the summer of 2015. He has been a mainstay in the club since then and has scored 17 goals from 94 appearances for the club.
The 23 year old was a regular for the club last season, scoring 12 goals and assisting 6 in 35 Serie A appearances as the club finished 5th in the League.
The Serbian is considered the biggest star of his country right now and they sacked their coach in order to ensure their star midfielder’s participation in this summer’s World Cup.
His emergence under head coach Simone Inzaghi has caught the eye of Europe’s top clubs and has been one of the most in demand player this summer. He has been linked with clubs like Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus.
The Serie A giants have set a €100 million price tag on the player who has been often compared with Zinedine Zidane.
Savic has said he would be happy to stay with the Biancocelesti amid speculation over a potential transfer, but stopped short of giving any assurances over his future.
Following the 2-0 loss to Brazil, the playmaker told Mediaset: “I need a little bit of rest now.
“I’ll return to Rome and I would be happy if I stay at Lazio, as I’m content there and I have a contract.”
“I read something different in the papers every day, but I haven’t thought about it yet,” he added.
“First, I’ll rest for a bit, then we’ll see.”
