Man United & Real Madrid talk not affecting Milinkovic-Savic

18 June 2018

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic will not let the rumours regarding his future have an adverse effect on Serbia`s World Cup campaign, according to Dusan Tadic.

Both men featured as Serbia got off to a winning start by defeating Costa Rica 1-0 in their Group E opener in Samara on Sunday, Aleksandar Kolarov`s stunning free-kick proving the difference.

Milinkovic-Savic posed a constant threat and provided further evidence of the talent that has seen the 23-year-old Lazio midfielder heavily linked with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid.

But Southampton winger Tadic says his team-mate will not become distracted by any transfer talk during Serbia`s time in Russia.

He is a good player, he is young. He can learn a lot of things but he has a big talent, Tadic said.

He has the capacity to go far. That`s it. He is the future of Serbian football.

I say to him to just be calm and work smart and he does. He needs to work for his team and then after he can show his qualities.

I think he is a clever guy. He is a good boy and he just needs to keep his head calm [despite the rumours]. There is a big future for him.
