Vatutin, on a recent call he had with RIA Novosti, commented on the media information regarding the amount of money that CSKA is offering to sign Olympiacos big man, Nikola Milutinov.

“Well, of course, millions of euros, well, of course, it’s CSKA. Why 9? Write 18 million. Everything in the economy is crashing down, news comes one worse, restrictions are being extended, and CSKA confidently throws millions from the bedside table. We are from another planet. Because of quarantine and self-isolation, I don’t remember the last time I picked up a pen in order to sign something. For CSKA, as for all Euroleague clubs, it’s now more important to find a compromise on salaries with current players.”

As it has previously been reported, Milutinov is close to signing a three-year contract with CSKA.
