Fiorentina give a deadline to Inter and Juventus for the transfer of Nikola Milenkovic. Inter Milan are searching for another defender as Bremer went to Juve, and they lost Ronocchia on a free transfer. Inzaghi needs an extra defender to help in the long season ahead. Milenkovic can operate in two positions in the backline. While Dimarco can serve as a backup to Bastoni on the left side of the back three.
Inter are facing stiff competition as Juve and Fiorentina both want the Serbian defender. Fiorentina are looking to extend his contract for three years as he is a key player, and Vincenzo Italiano wants to keep him. So, Fiorentina have given a deadline to the player’s agent that if the club does not receive any offer before the 1st week of August, they will extend his contract.
Fiorentina give deadline to Inter and Juve for Nikola Milenkovic
Juventus are looking to sign another defender as they want a backup for Bremer and Bonucci. Rugani is looking to leave the club, and Allegri needs another defender to help in the rotation. The Juve boss is also looking to set up with a back three in some games so Milenkovic can fit in the lineup. They have the funds to sign another defender and can make a move quickly. The Bianconeri have to upgrade their squad to compete with both Milan clubs.
Fiorentina are asking €15-20 million for the Serbian defender, and Inter are trying to fund the transfer with some sales. But Inter are struggling to find a club for Sanchez and Pinamonti, and want to generate funds with these transfers. The Nerazzurri would not want to lose another defender to Juve as they are rivals to Inter Milan. Milenkovic will help Inter in rotation and will keep their usual back three fresh to compete in various tournaments.
