Lazio’s president Claudio Lotito has confirmed that he wants to talk to Milinkovic-Savic to discuss his future, amid Juventus’ strong interest.
Milinkovic-Savic has a contract with Lazio until 2024, meaning that if he does not renew his contract, different clubs could try to sign him in the summer.
Lazio will try to extend his contract, but if he refuses, they will decide to release him in the summer or risk losing him for free next year.
Juventus is one of the teams that continue to closely monitor the situation of the 27-year-old midfielder, among Arsenal and Real Madrid.
So far, Lazio have said they want 100 million euros to release him in the summer, however, they are also trying to extend his contract.
Claudio Lotito also denied that he had any talks with Juventus regarding Milinkovic-Savic, confirming that he’s not for sale.
“I want to talk to Milinkovic-Savic, to look him in the eyes, to understand what he wants to do in the future and how much he loves Lazio. He’s not sale and I haven’t called Juventus to include him in any market negotiations,” said Lotito to Il Messaggero.
Milinkovic-Savic has been sensational for Lazio over the years. Since the start of the 2019/20 campaign, he has directly contributed to over 15 goals in every single season, and he’s on track to do the same again this term as well.
