Southampton are plotting a move to sign Atletico Madrid Stefan Savic, formerly of Manchester City.
That’s what’s reported by Todo Fichajes, who believe they could replicate their move for Toby Alderweireld back in 2014 by splashing out on Savic.
Savic failed to impress at Man City and subsequently departed to Fiorentina. Having earned his stripes in Italy, Diego Simeone made his move to sign the Serb.
To be trusted to guard an Atleti goal under the stewardship of Simeone is quite the compliment. He is a notoriously defensive minded coach.
Todo Fichajes believe that Savic could now be offered a return to the Premier League, where he would have an opportunity to prove Man City wrong. Their report claims that Savic is valued in the region of €25M.
It’d be quite the coup for Southampton to convince him to make the move to St. Mary’s. Although, the play they’re playing this term, they may well be facing Atletico in the Champions League next term…
