The January transfer window is well and truly underway and Chelsea have already secured their first signing in the form of USA winger Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth €50 million
The 20-year-old, however, will not join the Blues before the start of the next season as he will spend the rest of the season with Borussia Dortmund on loan. Serbia midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic who has been linked to the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United among others is really happy and will stay at Lazio, as per his agent and former Chelsea player Mateja Kezman.
“Sergej is really, really happy at Lazio,” Kezman told lalaziosiamonoi.it. “He showed how much he loves the club and fans by choosing to stay, despite having many offers.”
“All young players have ups and downs. He had a tough start to the season, but game by game he’s improved, getting back to his usual levels in the last month.”
“People often forget that he’s not a striker. His job isn’t to score. He does a lot for the team during a game. He won’t leave Lazio this month, that’s 100 per cent certain. It’s not right to talk about him possibly moving away every time.”
“He has a long contract with the Biancocelesti, he’s happy with them and above all, he’s not for sale this month.”
“We must respect [Claudio] Lotito as the President. Lazio are also a great club, with all due respect for other sides.”
Milinkovic-Savic has been one of the standout players in the Serie A over the past couple of seasons and has been linked to numerous clubs over the last year or so. The 23-year-old joined Lazio from KRC Genk in 2015 in a deal worth 18 million euros. Since then, he has settled and established himself as one of the mainstays in the Lazio midfield. He has made 144 appearances and scored 27 times for Lazio so far.
If his agent’s words are anything to go by, it seems highly unlikely that Milinkovic-Savic will be leaving Lazio in the near future, and Chelsea and others might have to look for options elsewhere.
