Lazio president Claudio Lotito has revealed he is open to the idea of selling Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic if the right offer is made.
The Red Devils have shown interest in the midfielder this summer but it is believed any deal for the Serbia international will depend on whether Paul Pogba completes a move to Real Madrid.
Ex-Chelsea striker Mateja Kezman represents Milinkovic-Savic, and is expected to conduct talks with United over a proposed five-year deal.

‘We’ll see the conditions that line up,’ Lotito told Sky Sport Italia.

‘If some offers were to be presented, we’d evaluate them with a spirit of collaboration that looks after the interests of the club and the player.
‘We’ll make the decisions that are best for everyone. The investments we made last summer should’ve allowed us to qualify for the Champions League, but we hope to have learned from the experience.’
The former Genk midfielder provided seven goals and three assists in 41 appearances for the Rome-based club last season.
