Lazio warned about Sergej Milinkovic-Savic gamble amid Chelsea interest
- Former Lazio player Paolo Di Canio sees Lazio's €120 million demands as unrealistic
- Chelsea reportedly remain interested in the midfielder
"Everybody can ask as much as they want", Di Canio said about the Lazio midfielder's alleged €120m-price tag.
"If you lose Courtois in the final days of the transfer window then you are forced to sign Kepa for €80m. If (Lazio president) Lotito sells SMS for that fee (more than €100m), I'd be happy for him. But we've got to remember than Milinkovic-Savic is a good prospect for now, nothing more.
"He is an amazing talent, but his price-tag is too high. He is a prospect for the level he aims to play for. Milinkovic-Savic is a good player but he needs to prove that he can play at the highest levels, he needs to prove that he can make the difference with club like Real Madrid.
"He must be more concrete and do less tricks. He likes to show off his skills but he must be more concrete. With all the respect due, he has been playing for Lazio and he won nothing, it's not enough to demand €120 million.
"However, I reckon you can do a step forward by joining a bigger club because the new manager, new directors and new experienced team-mates can give you advices on how to improve your game and further raise your level."
