As a player, he used to trouble defenses. As an agent, he seems anything but willing to… trouble Lazio, not pushing for a move for one of his clients, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, despite, as he claims, having received ‘huge bids’.
I’ve received huge bids, over €50m in the past few weeks. As we agreed at the start of Sergej’s contract though, he’s not for sale this summer. He’s very happy at Lazio and wants to help the team fight for a place in the Champions League next season
Mateja Kezman told calciomercato, avoiding saying the names of the clubs who made those bids.
According to reports, both Chelsea and Liverpool have shown interest in the Serbian defender after his impressive last season at Lazio.
We’re in no rush, the lad is happy at Lazio, he’s growing and Inzaghi is doing good things with him. He’s only 22 and next year we’re expecting to do great things with the Biancocelesti
Kezman added, recognizing that coach Simone Inzaghi has had a very positive impact on his client’s progress.
Milinkovic-Savic joined Lazio in 2015 coming from Genk, and he has already played in 73 games for the Rome side, scoring ten goals, despite being a defender.
