Milan Could Look To Milinkovic-Savic as Tonali Replacement

Milan are reportedly close to selling Sandro Tonali to Newcastle United and may reignite their interest in Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the quest to replace him.

The Premier League side are reportedly looking to pay around €70 million for the Italian midfielder and are in advanced negotiations with the Rossoneri, a situation that has infuriated supporters, who do not want to lose the lifelong Milanista.

Tonali plays an important role in Stefano Pioli’s squad, so Milan would need to find an equally decisive replacement for the upcoming season, and one player on the market would certainly fit those requirements.

Corriere della Sera (via LazioNews24) details how Milan have long been fans of Milinkovic-Savic and could look to finally pick him up this summer once they close out the sale of Tonali to Newcastle.

Juventus are also keen to pick up the Serbian midfielder but have not managed to convince Claudio Lotito of a deal, giving the Rossoneri the chance to swoop in and sign the 28-year-old.
