Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been urged to stay in Serie A and complete a move to Juventus by his own father.
The Lazio midfielder – who was one of the better players on the pitch in Serbia’s 1-0 World Cup win over Costa Rica on Sunday afternoon – has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in recent months, with the Red Devil’s known to be keen to further strengthen their midfield this summer.
However, his father, Nikola, hopes his son stays in Italy and joins champions Juventus:
“I told him so many times Juventus would be the ideal team, perfect for him,” he told Tuttosport.
“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.
“After three seasons in Rome, Sergej knows the Italian championship perfectly, he has set and integrated in a big way, he has learned the language well.
“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?
“Juve always goes very far in this competition. And he were to win the most prestigious cup, Sergej could also aspire to win the Golden Ball.”
