Former Defender Advises Juventus to Pursue Lazio’s Sergej Milinković-Savić

Last week, Juventus FC crashed out in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 after FC Porto advanced past the Turin-based club and into the quarter-finals.  After failing to at least reach the semifinals of the competition for the second season in a row, the Cristiano Ronaldo era, thus far, is a failure. 

As a result, drastic changes will be taking place for The Old Lady. Various reports suggest the club will offload a significant number of players to inject some youth into the aging squad.  

In an interview with Tuttosport (via Lazio News), former Juventus FC defender Gianluca Zambrotta spoke out what a possible reinforcement he’d like to see in the midfield, which will likely upset Lazio supporters. 

Pogba, Locatelli, Milinkovic-Savic, or Jorginho? The choice depends on the ideas that Pirlo has in mind. I have a weakness for Milinkovic, an important player also in terms of goals and assists.

Should Juventus follow the advice of their former player, Sergej Milinković-Savić won’t come cheap. However, after countless summers in which the 26-year-old has seen his name in various transfer rumors, this summer could be the one where he departs. 

If Lazio fails to qualify for the Champions League, Milinković-Savić could look for greener pastures.
