La Liga and Atletico Madrid defender Stefan Savic has revealed he is only good enough to play for the top four teams in Europe’s biggest leagues.
The 27-year-old is heavily touted with an exit from the Madrid club after being featured in fewer La Liga games last summer for Atletico Madrid.
His style of play is believed to have drawn interests from West London-side Chelsea and Turin-based Juventus.
The Blues are on the hunt for a defender in the summer market, a search intended to replace long-term serving Englishman Cahill.
Cahill is on the wrong side of 32 and gradually reclining on the pitch in terms of performance. Savic on the other hand has been rumoured to take his place in the future.
Despite being fronted less last term for Atletico Madrid, Zarko Pelicic, Savic’s agent is confident he will do outstandingly in any of the four best teams in the top European leagues.
Felicic described Montenegro international as a “top player” and continued, saying he’s willing to get the best for his client.
“Stefan is a player who is always very interesting. He has top quality, he can play for any of the top four teams in the best leagues,” Pelicic told TuttoJuve, as quoted by Calciomercato.
“Juventus? I can’t name names, everything goes through the club. He’s currently an Atletico Madrid player, we’ll evaluate what’s best for the club and the lad.”
Juventus are also said to have him on their radar, which means Chelsea will face a fierce battle over his signature.
The former City man had a horrible experience under former Manchester City boss Robert Mancini during his managerial stint at the club.
The star is valued at £36.00m according to transfermarkt.
