Report: Lazio want Bentancur included in deal from Juventus, if Milinkovic-Savic is to leave
Juventus is trying to find the best way to convince Claudio Lotito to sell Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. It is certainly not a surprise, as the bianconeri have been scouting and enquiring about the midfielder for quite some time: they want to buy one of the strongest midfielders in the league, and improve their side to move farther in the Champions League, and secure another Scudetto.
Interested in Milinkovic-Savic, however, is not only Juventus, but also many other top European clubs. This is why Lotito continues to raise their requests for the player, creating a real international auction for his prized jewel.
A few days ago, we reported that Milinkovic-Savic was happy in Rome, and earlier today we reported that Kezman (Milinkovic-Savic’s agent) and Lazio met to discuss the players future. However, according to the latest rumors, Lazio have made it clear to Juventus, what their demands are if he is to leave the Capital: for Sergej, 100 million euros is needed, plus a level counterpart.
In recent weeks there has been talk of Rugani and Pjaca being the players included, but the profile identified by Igli Tare is that of Rodrigo Bentancur, the Uruguayan midfielder who has just won the Round of 16, to head to the quarterfinals at the World Cup in Russia.
The negotiations for Milinkovic are still progressing, and his sale is destined to ignite the Lazio transfer market. Among the clubs most interested in the Serbian talent, there is also Barcelona, ready to include a Brazilian jewel in the negotiation (Rafinha).
