Chelsea and Real Madrid are reportedly contemplating whether to launch a bid for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Chelsea and Real Madrid may reportedly make an approach for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic during the next transfer window.

During his five-year spell at Stadio Olimpico, the Serbia international has established himself as one of the best midfielders in Europe, resulting in speculation regarding a switch to Manchester United.

However, while the Red Devils are now well stocked for options in central midfield, it appears that the 25-year-old will still receive offers this summer.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Chelsea and Real are monitoring the situation ahead of possibly making a formal bid.

While Chelsea have funds available from the sale of Eden Hazard, Los Blancos would likely have to make a number of sales if they are to step up their interest in the player.

Milinkovic-Savic, who could cost in the region of £80m, has four years left on his contract.
