Milinkovic-Savic’s agent has been outspoken about the Serbian midfielder’s future

Following the statements made by Lazio president Claudio Lotito regarding Milinkovic-Savic, the Lazio midfielder’s attorney, Mateja Kezman, also wanted to intervene.

The Serbian player’s agent spoke to Corriere dello Sport as follows, “Rumors about Juve? I think this is not the time to discuss the price and transfer of Sergej. Lazio is at the top, the team needs peace. We all know that right after the World Cup some things will be clearer and it will be the time to talk about everything.”

Then, he added, “Milinkovic has only 18 months on his contract and, as I said, after the World Cup it will be time to discuss first with the president and then also with everyone else. In all these years Sergej and I have respected Lazio and President Lotito. I have to think first about the interest of the player and then also the interest of the club. I am sure we will maintain our working relationship as we have done all these years.”

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.
