Lotito: If SMS wants to leave...

Claudio Lotito has confirmed that he will not stand in Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s way if he wants to join Manchester United.

United have reportedly agreed a fee of €90m for Milinkovic-Savic, while the midfielder’s agent is understood to be in Manchester to close a deal with Lazio’s permission.

“I’ve created a family vibe here,” Lotito told Leggo.

“If someone posed me a problem over career satisfaction, I’d be ready to satisfy them.

“The objective is to become one of those clubs who are a point of reference in Europe, and there are 12 of them today.

“Still, it’s normal for a top player to have aspirations of wanting to play for a great club.

“We still haven’t got to that stage, but should a player come to me like a son then I’d find it unfair to deprive them of such an opportunity.

“Furthermore, if you want to maintain a harmonious atmosphere, you must try to please your players.”
