Chelsea Set To Complete £130m Move For Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Lazio star player Sergej Milinkovic-Savic might be on his way to Stamford Bridge this summer if reports from Corriere dello Sport is anything to believe. The Serb has been linked with a move to Old Trafford right before the start of the world cup but Lazio’s price tag of £130m scare-off the Red Devils.
Having failed to capture the 23-year-old’s signature, the Theater of Dreams outfits turned their attention to Fred’s services and they acquired his signature even during the world greatest football tournament.
With Mourinho out of the picture, Chelsea are comfortably negotiating a deal with the Serie A side for the player’s switch to West London this summer, though Real Madrid and Juve are both considering a move for him.
The young but experienced midfielder converted 12 shots in Serie A throughout last campaign. His performance for the club couple with the five-star showing he put up in Russia have made him one of the names on the lips of many scouts across the continent.
Italian media outlets Corriere Dello Sport claimed that the Blues are now set to be engaged in many transfer dealings, after sorting out the crisis rocking their managerial position last week.
Maurizio Sarri, who recently took over from Antonio Conte, has signed Jorginho from Napoli and he is looking at the prospect of getting the Serbian as his second summer signing.
The question now is — Can Chelsea spend £130m on a player?
