The president of Lazio, Claudio Lotito, commented on the rumors that Sergej Milinković-Savic will soon leave the sky-blues and join the Saudi Al Hilal.
Despite being constantly linked with big names across Europe in recent years, SMS never got the green light from the Lazio front man to take the next step in his career.
However, the Serbian midfielder has never been as close to leaving the “Eternal City” as he is now. Lotito will not stand in his way this time, considering that Sergej only has one year left on his current contract with the Romans.
According to the reports of the Italian “Repubblica“, the leaders of Lazio verbally accepted Al-Hilal’s offer of 40 million euros. Lotito denies it.
“I don’t know anything about it, nor am I aware that anything has been agreed upon.” Maybe you know better than me? “I didn’t sign anything,” Lotito said today.
However, he admits that a tempting offer has arrived at the address of the sky-blues.
“I have a good relationship with him, but he is the one who ultimately decides his life.” I have a normal agreement with him that he can leave if a good offer comes. The offer that arrived is slightly less than 50,000,000 euros,” said Claudio Lotito and concluded:
“While he is a Lazio player, we count on him and expect him in the preparations. When that is no longer the case, we will not question his choice.”
