Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is one of the best young midfielders in Football Manager 2019. The Serbian powerhouse starts off at Italian side Lazio, but has the potential to play for the elite. We checked his development over 10 years.
The 23-year-old Milinkovic-Savic is considered as one of Lazio’s key players, but that does not make him unavailable for a transfer. The Serbian midfielder is a wanted man and there are several interested clubs at the start of a new save. During the first window you will have some difficulties to lure him away from Rome, as Lazio will demand a fee that is higher than 100M. However, be patient a bit. We tried three different soaks and in all those soaks he moved away from Lazio for a fee well under 100/m, the lowest was around 65M.
Milinkovic-Savic is a natural central midfielder, but he can also play as an attacking midfielder. We like him as a MC and would advise you to play him there. He is young enough to train him to become an AMC, where he is now accomplished.
Role: Box to Box midfielder
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is a real powerhouse midfielder that seems to be tireless. His best role is as a Box to Box midfielder, a role that we really like. On the attacking side he is good enough to finish crosses and score goals, while defensively he is strong enough to win balls back. And an even bigger plus: his impressive physique shows he is able to keep on going for the full 90 minutes.
