But Agent Rules Out Late Exit
Lazio midfielder and former Manchester United transfer target Sergey Milinkovic-Savic is being linked with a late move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Reports from Italy today claim that talks took place earlier this week between PSG and Zoran Vekic an agent with close links to super-agent Pini Zahavi.
The Serbia international spent the summer being linked with some of Europe’s top clubs. United watched him extensively last season and were expected to put in a bid, but Lazio president Claudio Lotito put a valuation of €140million on the 23-year-old and that was enough to put off both United and Real Madrid.
AC Milan were reported to have offered a loan fee of €30million along with a €50million right of redemption to make the deal permanent next summer.
Juventus were also interested but their €100million purchase of Cristiano Ronaldo meant any move would have to wait until next summer.
Neither Vekic or Zahavi have been appointed by Milinkovic-Savic’s agent Mateja Kezman. Indeed, former Chelsea forward Kezman insists there will be no exit for the Serb before the transfer window shuts in much of Europe this Friday.
“Enough with these false claims. It has been going on all summer,” Kezman told a Lazio fansite on Tuesday. “Sergey is staying with Lazio.”
While the transfer window remains open for clubs in France, the deadline fell in Italy on 17 August. PSG are likely to switch their attentions elsewhere.
