Real Madrid and Manchester United are both in contention to sign one of the most highly-rated midfield prospects in European football during the off-season.
Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, 23, is set to play a starring role for the Serbia national team alongside United midfielder Nemanja Matic at the 2018 World Cup in Russia later this year.
At 1.92m tall, the Spanish-born Serbia international holds a major physical presence in midfield but it's been his technical ability and creativity for the Serie A side that's caught the eye of scouts from Europe's elite club's.
However, his agent, Mateja Kezman has warned potential suitors that his client won't come on the cheap with I Biancocelesti in no rush to lose one of their most prized assets, who's scored 11 goals and registered six assists in 33 appearances this season.
"I don't want to talk about numbers, but I'm sure Sergej has it in him to be the best player in Europe in the next few years," the former Chelsea striker told Tuttomercatoweb.
"Still, we'll talk about transfers at the end of the season. Lazio, for now, are playing great football and having an important season. We're all focused on this."
