Mendes working on bringing Lazio star to Real Madrid

Published on: 12 July 2018

Having already played a role in bringing Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus, it appears agent Jorge Mendes is trying to broker a Real Madrid move for Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Bianconeri landed the Portuguese ace for €100 million earlier this week, and it appears the man who represents him isn’t done with Los Blancos just yet.

Despite not being Milinkovic-Savic’s agent, Sky Sport Italia reports Mendes is mediating a potential move to Madrid for the Serbian ace.

It’s believed an opening bid of €100m will be made in the coming days, though Lazio President Claudio Lotito is reportedly looking for a figure in the region of €120-150m.

Los Blancos remain the only credible option for the Serbian after Juventus’ recent move for Ronaldo, though there are reports Manchester United could make their interest known in the near future.

Last season Milinkovic-Savic netted 12 times in 35 Serie A appearances for Lazio.
