Despite Lazio President Claudio Lotito’s protestations, there are still reports Milan will offer cash plus Giacomo Bonaventura for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Technical director Leonardo said a possible swoop for the Serbian was “difficult,” but not impossible.

Now La Repubblica newspaper claims a proposal is being lined up for cash plus Bonaventura.

The money would be raised for the midfielder, who is valued at €120m, by selling either Suso or Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Meanwhile, Lazio President Claudio Lotito poured cold water over the Rossoneri dreams.

“None of the Italian clubs has the money to afford Milinkovic-Savic,” he told the Corriere della Sera newspaper.
