Manchester United told to pay club-record package for Lazio midfielder

Lazio set Milinkovic-Savic asking price

Serie A outfit Lazio are reportedly holding out for a mammoth price tag of around £130m in order to part ways with top Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.



The Serbia international is regarded as one of the best midfield talents in the Serie A, and his performances during the current campaign are said to have caught the eye of United and arch-rivals Manchester City.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Lazio are prepared to end their association with the box-to-box midfielder in the summer, but only if a club is willing to match their £130m price tag for the midfielder.

Milinkovic-Savic is currently contracted to Lazio until the summer of 2022, and he has previously suggested that he is no hurry to leave the Capital outfit, who are aiming to finish in the Champions League positions this term.

Lazio are currently one point behind fourth-placed Inter Milan, who have a game in hand, and they have work to do between now and the end of the season in order to surpass their rivals.
