Lazio have rejected reports suggesting Real Madrid are closing in on a deal for Serbian midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
The Rome-based club’s sporting director Igli Tare has rejected reports in the Spanish press that the European champions had a strong interest in the 22-year-old, who was born in Spain.
“We have not received any calls from Florentino Perez or any Madrid officials,” Tare said, as cited by Marca.
“This is a situation which we will discuss at the end of the season, that will be the time to evaluate the position and analyse bids for any players.
“His value is very high, we rejected offers of €70m last summer so…”
The Serbian has nine goals and six assists from 32 appearances so far this campaign and is reported to have a market value in excess of €80m.
