On Monday, we relayed a report from Italy stating Mateja Kezman, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s agent, had been in England for the past three days to hold talks with Manchester United.
The Serbian midfielder is apparently seen by the Red Devils as the ideal Paul Pogba replacement should the Frenchman leave Old Trafford this summer, and talks have taken place about a possible transfer.
However, according to both Corriere dello Sport and Il Tempo on Tuesday, no offer has been made just yet, while Gazzetta dello Sport believe €75m has been offered by the Premier League side for the 24-year-old (they say Claudio Lotito wants €120m).
As things stand, we’d be far more inclined to side with the first two, especially since Mateja Kezman has yet to return to Rome, where he is awaited by Lazio to discuss his client’s future.
All three of the newspapers claim the agent is expected in Italy soon, with a couple expecting him to ‘bring offers’ from the clubs he’s spoken to.
Corriere even go as far as saying the representative has ‘collapsed in a cosmic silence these past few months’, clearly trying his best to get his client a move.
The newspaper believe the situation can change ‘in a matter of hours’ if Kezman brings an adequate offer to the table.
Il Tempo describe it as him ‘going around the world to understand how to solve Sergej’s situation’, and Lazio want to know ‘as quickly as possible’ whether he has something for them.
It literally is all in Kezman’s hands now, and Manchester United fans just have to hope he will arrive in Italy’s capital with something from Ed Woodward and co.
