The approach to every transfer window in recent years has seen many rumours around the future of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. Both Manchester clubs have been credited with an interest in the Lazio player, and Tuesday saw a report that Jose Mourinho is also keen on the signing for Tottenham.
Now it’s Chelsea’s turn to enter the picture, and Le10Sport bring claims on Wednesday regarding the Blues and their interest in the midfielder. It’s explained PSG are keen and have already made an offer of €60m, a figure they don’t want to push upwards.
Lazio aren’t keen on agreeing to a sale at this stage, because they want to make sure they have their player fully focused until the end of the current season.
According to the claims from France, Chelsea have initiated contact with the midfielder’s representatives recently. They’re being helped by their former player Claude Makelele, who is described as working as an advisor to those in charge at the London club.
Milinkovic-Savic is represented by Mateja Kezman, who has previously played with Makelele, and it’s suggested that connection could help Chelsea in the transfer race.
