Clubs have already been warned that bids in the region of €70 million will not be enough to tempt Lazio into selling the 22-year-old Serbia global, who scored twice in Sunday's 3-0 victory at Sassuolo.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been impressive not just this season but throughout his journey at Lazio, after joining from Genk.
The report entails that Los Blancos are shortlisting a total of 25-30 players for the summer, with Milinkovic-Savic the latest one to be added to the list of potential transfer targets.
"We had played three games in a week, now we have three more".
Roma dropped from third to fifth.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic claims he is content to remain at Lazio "for now" despite being flattered by building transfer speculation, while sporting director Igli Tare insists there have been no approaches from Real Madrid regarding the talented box-to-box midfielder. They have however been linked with his Lazio teammate Stefan de Vrij, so it wasn't a completely wasted journey.
Immobile stepped up and made no mistake.
Khouma Babacar missed a chance to pull one back for Sassuolo before the break, with the hosts' penalty appeals after Matteo Politano was brought down on the edge of the box going unheeded.
Milinkovic-Savic doubled his tally two minutes into the second half, heading Felipe Anderson's cross into the bottom right corner.
Both sides ended with 10 men.
Berardi was sent off for a bad tackle on Stefan Radu while Marusic saw red for elbowing Brazilian defender Rogerio.
Fiorentina got their second win in two months with Cristiano Biraghi scoring the only goal agaisnt Chievo, and Verona ended their three-match losing streak 2-1 at home to Torino thanks to a Mattia Valoti double.
Spal boosted its hopes of Serie A survival with a vital 3-2 win in a relegation battle at Crotone.
