He has not been formally announced yet, but Beppe Marotta is already hard at work for Inter and he reportedly has an ‘agreement in principle’ for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
According to Corriere della Sera, Marotta has told Suning that his top target for the summer is Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and that he has agreed a deal in principle with the midfielder.
The newspaper explains the 61-year-old had already held talks with Lazio President Claudio Lotito over signing the Serb when he was still at Juventus.
Lotito recently admitted that Sergej Milinkovic-Savic could be sold ‘if a once-in-a-lifetime offer comes in’ for the midfielder.
“Nowadays it’s very complicated for a player to tie himself to a club for life,” Lotito told Calciomercato.com.
“However, Lazio are doing well, our players show great attachment and perhaps they’re persuaded to stay for what we’re doing on an infrastructural level, with the recent renovation of our training ground.
“Unfortunately, Lazio don’t have the economic power of Barcelona and Real Madrid so if a once-in-a-lifetime offer comes in, it’d pose a problem or us.”
