Euro Paper Talk: Milan star’s €40m release clause interests Liverpool

Date published: Thursday 12th April 2018 12:24

Manchester United have been told they must pay an extra €80m to sign a Serie A star, while Liverpool have been handed a boost in their pursuit of an AC Milan winger according to Thursday’s European papers.

 

MAN UTD TOLD TO FORK OUT €150m FOR SERIE A STAR

Manchester United have been told that they must pay €150m to secure the signing of a star Serie A midfielder, a report claims.

According to Italian outlet Sport Mediaset, Manchester United, PSG, Juventus, Real Madrid and Man City are keen on signing Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The report claims that an offer of around €70m was made for the 23-year-old, who has been tipped to fetch over €100m.

As expected, Lazio president Claudio Lotito is playing hard ball, and has told interested clubs they must pay €150m to sign the Serbia international.

That is the price tag that will have reportedly landed on Ed Woodward’s desk, meaning the ball is in his court, but the United chief may have no hesitation in paying upwards of €100m as the Red Devils are in need of midfield reinforcements.

Milinkovic-Savic however recently insisted that he is not contemplating his future at the current time.

He told zurnal.rs: “Everyone is telling their own version, but I’m not thinking about my future at all. I was thinking about how to get back on the pitch as soon as possible.

“Now that I have recovered I can concentrate on what is important: my performance and results with Lazio.

“The current situation makes me realise that I do not have to think about other options. I am concentrating on my current club and our goal of qualifying for the Champions League ”
