Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is expected to sign a new contract extension with Lazio in the coming days.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic became one of Europe’s most sought-after young midfielders with his performances last season, scoring 12 goals in 35 Serie A appearances as Lazio narrowly missed out on qualifying for the Champions League.
Despite reports linking Manchester United, Spurs and Juventus with a move for the 23-year-old, he stayed in Rome and is now set to extend his contract beyond its current 2022 expiration date, according to Lazio’s sporting director Igli Tare.
“It’s just a matter of days now,” Tare told Sky Sports Italia. “All will be signed at the start of next week. The agreements have been in place for some time now.”
Lazio slapped a €100m (£89m) price tag on the Serbian, which no club is willing to pay at the moment
Lazio’s star striker and last season’s joint top scorer in Serie A Ciro Immobile is also close to agreeing a new contract at the Stadio Olimpico.
