-- Historic Deal for Luka Milivojevic --
Luka Milivojevic is on his way to the magical world of the English Premier League! Olympiacos and Crystal Palace have agreed to terms for the Serbian’s transfer to England with the fee rumored to be between €15-16 Million.
Luka Milivojevic has packed his bags and is on his way to London for Crystal Palace. The Olympiacos captain will arrive in England tomorrow to pass the necessary medical tests and sign a new deal with Crystal Palace in the English Premier League.
After heavy bargaining between Olympiacos and Crystal Palace, the two teams came to an agreement with a transfer fee rumored to be between €15-16 Million, the highest ever for a Greek club. Both Kostas Manolas and Kostas Mitroglou were sold from Olympiacos to Roma and Benfica for approximately €15 Million, however Milivojevic’s transfer is likely to surpass that amount.
Milivojevic will earn approximately €2 Million a year at Crystal Palace. The length of his contract is yet to be known.
Milivojevic has been one of Olympiacos' best players this season (and the last couple of years) and said “goodbye” in fashion, scoring the winning goal on Sunday against Veria in the Superleague.
With the transfer window coming to a close on January 31st, Olympiacos might not have time to replace Milivojevic in the roster. Olympiacos currently have three players in the holding midfield position with Esteban Cambiasso, Andreas Bouchalakis, and Alexi Romao. However, a last minute move could be in the cards as Pajtim Kasami could return to Greece from Nottingham Forest (on loan) while Manolis Siopis from Panionios has also been rumored to a move to Olympiacos.
As of now, Olympiacos’ next move is likely to be Watford right back Juan Carlos Paredes and according to sportfm.gr, the Piraeus club will also look to sign a centreback before the transfer window closes tomorrow.
