Manchester United and Chelsea given hope in pursuit of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has revealed that the club will listen to offers for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Milinkovic-Savic has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer as both Manchester United and Chelsea battle it out for the highly-rated 23-year-old.

It’s understood that Milinkovic-Savic is valued at around €100m (£89m) but the Serbian recently claimed that is keen to stay on at Lazio ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

While Lazio chief Lotito insists that their prized possession was never put on the market, he admits that the Serie A outfit would evaluate ‘indecent offers’ from interested clubs.

‘I never put Milinkovic-Savic up for sale,’ Lotito told RMC Sport.

‘As with everything, indecent offers will be evaluated. In the interest of the club, I’ve never taken an emolument, unlike many of my colleagues…

‘After Juventus, Inter and Milan, my Lazio is one of the most successful clubs in Italy in terms of trophies.’

Patrice Evra believes Milinkovic-Savic has to be ‘willing to die’ for United if he wants to join the club this summer.

Asked about the Serbian during the World Cup, Evra told ITV Sport: ‘I’m really careful when I talk about Manchester United, because to play for this club, it’s not about your ability.

‘You need to be a character, a personality. To play for this club, you need to die for this club. The expectations are really huge and I’m afraid now.
