A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Calciomercato mentioned that Real Madrid are locked in a three-way battle for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. It is believed that Los Blancos could face competition in the form of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain in pursuit of the Serbian midfield ace.

Milinkovic-Savic’s Impressive Run Of Form At Stadio Olimpico

Milinkovic-Savic is having another impressive campaign in Italy as he has been responsible for producing a series of influential displays at the heart of Lazio’s midfield. The 27-year-old has found the back of the net on 11 occasions and grabbed 12 assists in 46 matches for the Italian club this season across all fronts.

The Spain-born talent has been a positive influence in both halves based on his average of 1.9 tackles, 0.9 interceptions, 1.1 clearances, 1.9 shots, 1.4 key passes and 1.2 dribbles per 90 minutes in Serie A.

He has even been excellent with his ball distribution after completing 81.6% of his attempted passes in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).

Is Milinkovic-Savic A Good Choice For Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti?

Milinkovic-Savic is a tough-tackling midfielder who can sense the danger quickly to earn the ball back at the centre of the park. He doesn’t mind getting back to clear his lines and remains a tidy passer of the ball.

The 30-time Serbia international has chipped in by scoring and creating plenty of crucial goals for his team. Furthermore, he can even make a few clever runs with the ball from midfield and usually works his socks off for his side.

Therefore, it makes a lot of sense for Real Madrid to move in for Milinkovic-Savic during this summer transfer window. He will bring a lot of quality to Carlo Ancelotti‘s midfield department and could go on to become a real success story at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

At 27, the Serbian sensation is playing at his peak and is well-equipped to make an immediate impact at the Madrid club. With all things considered, Milinkovic-Savic will be a brilliant choice for Los Blancos to pursue ahead of the new campaign as he could help them challenge for even more major trophies in the coming seasons.
