Lazio, Claudio Lotito slams the door in the face of suitors for Milinkovic-Savic
The biancoceleste president has set the price for Milinkovic-Savic
Claudio Lotito, interviewed by “Il Messaggero,” set the price for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, debunking the latest market rumors.
The Lazio president spoke this way about the Serbian midfielder, in his eighth season with the biancoceleste club: “I have no agreement with Kezman to sell him to Juve or anyone else in the winter. On the contrary, he is now worth 120 million, no longer 100. Every month the price goes up.”
The number 1 of the capital club then went on to talk about the great start in the league of Sarri’s men, led by Ciro Immobile and Milinkovic-Savic himself, who already has three goals and seven assists: “Beyond the great victory at the Franchi, I am satisfied with the spirit I saw again. I’ve said it before, if we continue with this attitude, we don’t set ourselves limits and we can go far.”
“I first proposed its relaunch, I am deepening the discussion with the Nervi family, the superintendence, but it is no longer up to me because they must have guarantees on coverage and capacity. Lazio has an average of 42,000 spectators, a quarter of them would fit in that facility,” the Lazio president then continued, returning to the issue regarding the Stadio Flaminio.
In the last two years the Scudetto has been won by Milanese teams, first Inter and then Milan. Previously, for nine seasons in a row, it had gone to Juventus, which was able to win it with first Antonio Conte on the bench (three successes for the Salento native), then Massimiliano Allegri (five) and then Maurizio Sarri, who, however, was later replaced by Andrea Pirlo. At the beginning of the millennium, the last two Scudetti went to teams with non-vertical striped jerseys: Lazio won it in 2000, Roma in 2001.
