The narrow offer from Lazio Rome, which should have been around ten million euros for Filip Kostic in the summer, could easily beat Newcastle United by lengths. The newly rich club from England wants to build "the best team in the world" under Crown Prince and owner Mohammed bin Salman, as it is called in a report by Sport Bild. Kostic could also play a role in this.
The financial resources would undoubtedly be available, as the sheikh has a fund that amounts to around 295 billion euros. Salman has already invested 300 million euros in the club, a snapshot, because a limit for the future has not been set.
And so an actor from Eintracht Frankfurt also comes into play. According to the journal, Kostic should appear on the shopping list. The Serb is contractually bound to the Bundesliga club until 2023. Saying goodbye could be realistic. The mentioned offer from Italy for Kostic already led to tensions in the club this summer.
