The agent of Ajax star Dusan Tadic has claimed that AC Milan tried to sign his client last summer before he left Southampton.
Tadic moved on to 26 goals and 15 assists as he was the key man in Ajax’s 4-1 thrashing of Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday
The Serbia international left Southampton in an €11.4m deal last summer, and his agent Milos Malenovic has revealed there was interest in Serie A – where his client could yet end up in the future.
“Who knows, maybe he will [play in Serie A] in the future,” Malenovic said of the 30-year-old to Calciomercato.com.
“[Milan and Roma] both wanted him last summer and last autumn. They tried to sign him when he was still a Southampton player.
“It was an incredible performance, from him and the whole team. I don’t think he’ll ever forget this game.
“We met after the match in the team hotel. He was very relaxed and happy. Dusan is a very smart lad.
“He’s intelligent and easy-going. He doesn’t know arrogance, not even 1 percent of it. He can talk about football all day. One day he’ll definitely be a Coach.
“He feels very good in Ajax’s system. He’s showing his class in different positions. Ajax was the right step in his career.”
