Intermediaries have reportedly offered Real Madrid the opportunity to sign Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. According to Defensa Central, Real Madrid has been approached by Lazio and Serbia midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who wants to leave the Italian club this summer. Milinkovic-Savic has been with Lazio since 2015, after joining from Belgian club KRC Genk. Over the years, the 27-year-old has developed into one of the top midfielders in Serie A, distinguished by his powerful displays and goal-scoring ability. To date, the Serb has appeared in 294 games for the Italian capital club, scoring 58 goals and assisting on 51 others. Milinkovic-Savic, who has two years left on his current contract, is now eager to leave Lazio during the current transfer window. Over the years, the midfield powerhouse has been linked with the who’s who of European football, but a move away never materialized due to Lazio’s prohibitive price tag. However, due to his contract situation and desire to leave, this could change this summer. And, according to the aforementioned report, Milinkovic-Savic has been offered a dream move to Real Madrid by Italian intermediaries. The reigning Spanish and European champions have been tracking the 27-year-old midfielder for years, with Lazio previously quoting them a fee of €150 million for him.

However, the Serbian international has now been offered to the Merengues by intermediaries, and he could be available for as little as €50 million this summer because he wants to leave Lazio, while the Serie A club is desperate for funds. Real Madrid, on the other hand, may decline the offer to sign the 27-year-old superstar because they have already strengthened their midfield unit with the addition of Aurelien Tchouameni this summer. The Frenchman joined the club from AS Monaco in a deal worth up to €80 million. On top of that, Dani Ceballos looks likely to stay put, meaning Real Madrid have an overload of options in midfield. While they would need to bring in a long-term replacement for Luka Modric, Real Madrid plan to do it next summer and have their sights set on a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham for the role. So, Milinkovic-Savic is unlikely to make his way to the Bernabeu in the ongoing transfer window. However, the Serbian ace could still leave Lazio before the window closes, as Manchester United are contemplating an offer of €68 million to sign him up after their pursuit of Frenkie de Jong went nowhere.
