Real Madrid are reportedly ready to offer €170m for Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, challenging Juventus and Manchester United.
The Serbia international does not have a release clause in his contract and President Claudio Lotito has already said he turned down a massive proposal, wanting well over €100m.
Manchester United and Juventus have never disguised their interest, but now Real Madrid are also diving in to the race.
According to Il Messaggero newspaper and Spanish paper AS, the Blancos are prepared to offer €150m plus another €20m in performance-related bonuses.
The 23-year-old would also be guaranteed a salary worth €6m per year to begin with, rising as time wore on for five seasons.
Milinkovic-Savic confessed to FIFA.com that he is a lifelong Real Madrid supporter.
