Lazio drop asking price for Chelsea target Milinkovic-Savic

  Lazio drop asking price for Chelsea target Milinkovic-Savic Lazio are reportedly ready to drop their asking price of Chelsea target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic according to Corriere Dello Sport via InsideFutbol. The Italian side have been asking for a high fee for the Serbian midfielder, who has been in high demand this Summer with multiple clubs including Chelsea and Manchester United interested in signing him. However, Lazio are now prepared to lower their 150 million asking price for the midfielder, with the Italian now ready to accept a bid of €120 million for the Serbian. This could be down in part to Juventus’ acquisition of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, with the Italian champions paying over £80 million to bring the Portuguese star to Turin. It is as of yet unknown whether this reduction will help Lazio sell the player, with the Serbian midfielder destined for a move away from Rome this Summer. Chelsea are firmly in the race for Milinkovic-Savic however and could be tempted to make an offer due to the reduction in price.

Juventus are reportedly out of the deal due to their signing of former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo. The deal has obviously taken a lot out of their budget, meaning a deal for Milinkovic-Savic is now off the table.

  Chelsea express interest in signing Sergej Milinkovic-Savic Chelsea have expressed an interest in Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to a report from Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport. Maurizio Sarri’s appointment as Chelsea boss has seemingly kick-started the club’s transfer activity and they’ve expressed an interest in signing the 23-year-old. Manchester United are keen to sign Milinkovic-Savic, as are Barcelona, and as such, Lazio have apparently put a whopping £115m price tag on his head. However, Corriere dello Sport suggest that Chelsea will try to reduce that fee by offering a player-plus-cash deal, one which would see Cesc Fabregas join Lazio. The Serie A side were originally not interested in selling Milinkovic-Savic, but with interest in him so high, their position has now softened and as such, Chelsea have made their move.

REAL MADRID are preparing a £150million bid for Sergej Milinkovic - Savic , according to reports in Italy. So they will only allow Milinkovic - Savic to leave on their terms. Juventus have made him one of their No 1 targets , but Lazio president Claudio Lotito would much rather sell him abroad.

If Real Madrid are to sign the midfielder however, they may have to pay more than the €120 million they have offered so far, with Lazio being historically tight-fisted.

United have been interested in a switch for the Serbian for some time, but may have to overpay for the midfielder if they want to bring him to Old Trafford.
