Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic for sale at the right price - president

Ciro Immobile sparked Lazio's rout of SPAL, but was his sensational volley good enough to be No. 1 on Matchday 11 in Serie A?

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has said his club are not under any pressure to sell Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, although he would not rule out a sale at the right price.

The Serbian midfielder has been linked with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester United, but he recently renewed his contract with the Serie A club through to 2023.

That is not to say he will be remaining in the Italian capital for the next five years, though, as Lotito has said he is open to offers. However, he added that he will not be held to ransom since his club are in a financially stable position.

"In today's football, it is difficult for a player to tie himself to just one club for the rest of his career, but at Lazio we are doing well," Lotito told Calciomercato.com. "Our players show great affection to the club.

"Unfortunately, Lazio don't have the same economic potential as Barcelona and Real Madrid. When the conditions are on our side and an offer you can't refuse arrives, then we will face the matter."

Speaking to Sky Sport Italia, Lotito added that football "is about opportunities," although he reiterated that Lazio "do not need to sell -- we are in the black by the tune of €38 million; we are strong and solid."

Lotito priced the 23-year-old at €120m last summer -- a fee no club was willing to bid.

After the transfer window closed, Milinkovic-Savic signed a new deal with the Biancocelesti and he has missed only one game this season.
