After winning the World Under-20, leading,  with Serbia, it was fought on the market by Lazio, the first club to move concretely, and Fiorentina, which came into the final race with an indecent proposal.

Eventually, Milinkovic-Savic chose Lazio, where everyone is getting. It quickly gained fans and insiders, with excellent performance. Tender feet and head on your shoulders, Milinkovic-Savic knows there is the long way to go to break. “Maybe I was paid too much,” he told, commenting on the 9 million (plus 10% on future sales) spent from Lazio to snatch at Genk.
