Manchester United suffer huge blow as player’s father wants his son to stay in Italy

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s father has spoken about which club his son should move to and it is not good news for Manchester United fans.

The 23-year-old has become one of the hottest properties in Europe as he has been linked with a move away from Lazio but his father claims the Serbian should remain in Italy and join one of the biggest sides in the world.

The player had said that he wants to discuss his future after the World Cup but his father has now come out and stated that Juventus should be the next move for Milinkovic-Savic.

While speaking to Tuttosport (h/t Manchester Evening News) Milinkovic-Savic’s father said:

“In Turin, in a large prestigious and multi-titled society like the Bianconeri that has dominated the scene for years, he would have the opportunity to grow and improve again until he reaches full maturity.”

The player’s father added that his son has picked up the language well in Italy after years with Lazio and knows the Serie A very well too. He also believed that his son would be playing with some of the best players and would win a lot of trophies with the Old Lady.

“And with players of the highest level as the various [Paulo] Dybala, Douglas Costa and company he could win the Scudetto, the Italian Cup and make an important contribution to triumph in the Champions League, why not?”

Milinkovic-Savic will be looking to increase his stock in the World Cup and if he does well with Serbia, his asking price will certainly rise.

The latest comments from the player’s father will come as a blow not only to us but also to his club, who would have wanted to possibly start a bidding war but if these comments anger Lazio, maybe they might end up selling the 23-year-old to a club outside Italy?
