Lazio chief denies reports of Milinkovic-Savic’s agreement with Juventus

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has denied that Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has agreed to join Juventus.

The Biancocelesti have remained steadfast when it comes to selling the midfielder, managing to keep hold of him despite interest from Europe’s top clubs in the summer.

Interest in Milinkovic-Savic has grown following his exquisite start to the 2022/23 season, with the Serbian racking up three goals and seven assists in Serie A.

Juventus hold a long-term interest, and recent reports stated that they are exploring a move for him in January to reinforce their squad following a poor start to the new season.

Manchester United are another suitor, but Lotito has ruled out Milinkovic-Savic’s exit in January, slapping a €120 million price tag on him.

“I’ve no agreement with his agent to sell Sergej to Juventus or any other club in January,” Lotito told Il Messaggero (h/t Fabrizio Romano).

“Price tag for Milinković is no longer €100m – his value is €120m now.”

The Italian capital outfit are planning for talks with the Serb and his agent Mateja Kezman over a contract extension.

They would need to lower their valuation of the 27-year-old if they fail to agree a new deal, with his current one expiring in 2024.

Milinkovic-Savic’s red-hot form has helped Maurizio Sarri’s side sit third in the Serie A table, and he will be looking to make an impact for Serbia at the 2022 World Cup.
