Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has completed a €40 million (£34m/$44m) transfer from Lazio to Saudi Arabian team Al-Hilal.
On Wednesday, Al-Hilal announced the signing of the former Lazio midfielder through their social media platforms. According to information obtained, milinkovic-Savic has agreed to a three-year contract with the Riyadh-based club, earning €20 million per year (£17m/$22m).
After spending eight years with the club, the Serbian international decided to leave Lazio and turned down Juventus’s interest to join the Saudi Arabian side. Arsenal and Chelsea had also been linked with him.
Milinkovic-Savic will join forces with former Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly and former Wolves star Ruben Neves, who joined Al-Hilal earlier in the summer.
Al-Hilal’s transfer activity may not be limited to this deal alone, as they are actively seeking to attract more high-profile players to Saudi Arabia in an effort to contend for the league title in the upcoming season.
