After making an impressive start to World Cup 2018, speculation linking Serbia star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic‘s to Real Madrid has only grown in stature.

However, according to his father, his son, would be wise to stay in Serie A for a lengthier period of time.

Savic’s club Lazio are reportedly demanding €100 million for the midfielder and his father – Nikola Milinkovic, reckons the time is right for his son to join Juventus.

“Juventus would be the ideal team, perfect for him,” Nikola told Tuttosport.

“In Turin, at a club of great prestige that has dominated Calcio for years, he would have the opportunity to grow and improve again, to reach full maturity.

“After three seasons in Rome, Sergej knows Serie A perfectly, he has established himself and integrated in a big way, and has learned the language well.

“And they have high-level players like [Paulo] Dybala, Douglas Costa and more that can win the Scudetto, the Coppa Italia, and make an important contribution to he Champions League. Why not [win it]? Juve always go very far in this competition.

“And if he wins the most prestigious title, Sergej could also aim for the Ballon d’Or.”

Having said that, Nikola is of the view that a move to Spain in the future is a possibility and Sergej should try and follow former Los Blancos star Zinedine Zidane’s career path.

“He could reach Spain after he’s 25 years old [currently aged 23],” noted the player’s father.

“He will have completed his footballing maturity in Italy. Just as Zidane did.”
