FC's Paul Mariner explains how important it is to come out flying in a World Cup opener, which may have contributed to Serbia's defensive nature.

Lazio have been adamant that interested parties, which include Man United as well as Real Madrid, would need to pay over £100m to secure his services.

Milinkovic-Savic is hot property across the continent, with Serie A holders Juventus, European champions Real Madrid and Premier League giants Manchester United reportedly interested in the Serbia global. The Italian side remains favourite, to the point that his own father is trying to push a move so his son can remain in Italy.

"I say to him to just be calm and work smart and he does". "They would be the ideal club for my son".

"In Turin, at a club of great prestige that has dominated Calcio for years, he would have the opportunity to grow and improve again, to reach full maturity."

"After three seasons in Rome, Sergej knows Serie A perfectly, he has established himself and integrated in a big way and has learned the language well".

"Juve always goes very far in this competition".

Alisson is now on global duty with Brazil after a superb run with Roma last season which saw them reach the last four of the Champions League.

When asked about a possible link to Los Blancos, he added: "True, but he could go to Spain after he turns 25, he will have completed his footballing maturity in Italy, just like [Zinedine] Zidane did".

The Lazio midfielder has emerged as one of the best box-to-box midfielder in the world over the past 18 months, and is now representing Serbia in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
