According to an exclusive update courtesy of le10sport, Paris-Saint Germain sporting director Leonardo has made Sergej Milinkovic-Savic a ‘priority‘ target as well as AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer – giving Man City a potential battle to sign the 6ft 3 powerhouse.
Milinkovic-Savic, starting 24 Serie A games for current club Lazio, has recently been on City’s radar as per le10sport, with Real Madrid, PSG, Man United and the Sky Blues all in the race for his signature.
Would Milinkovic-Savic be a welcome addition at Eastlands?
Yes, sign him up Txiki
Judging by these impressive numbers, Milinkovic-Savic would be an imposing figure in central midfield, but with PSG now allegedly making the 25-year-old one of their ‘priority’ signings this summer, City face a battle for his signature.
Just last summer we signed Rodrigo for a club-record £62.8 million, with there now being a debate over whether we will prioritise Milinkovic-Savic given our quality in the middle of the park.
The Ligue 1 champions, seemingly our main competitors for the player, have apparently already drawn a a €60 million (£54.2 million) offer for his services – with the only question being whether City will match that bid in future.
Only time will tell, but it looks like Txiki Begiristain and co face a battle to bring him to Eastlands.
