Serbian midfielder Ivan Ilić is set to join Zenit Saint Petersburg, with Torino agreeing to a transfer fee of €22 million plus €3 million in bonuses. Ilić will receive significant benefits, including a luxury villa, a car, and numerous free flights to Serbia.

Ivan Ilić is soon expected to head to Russia and commit to Zenit Saint Petersburg. Torino has agreed to sell the Serbian international, accepting the Russian champions' offer of €22 million fixed plus €3 million in bonuses.

Although Ilić was initially hesitant about moving to Russia, primarily due to the isolation of Russian clubs, Zenit managed to persuade him to accept the offer. According to Tuttosport, it is increasingly likely that the Serbian international will join Zenit, having received an enticing proposal from Saint Petersburg.

Even the fact that Ilić requested a salary of €5 million instead of the offered €3 million did not deter the Russians. A compromise was reached, and he will earn €3.5 million annually, with Zenit also preparing substantial bonuses of €2.5 million in case of good collective and individual performances. And that's not all.

According to Italian reports, Zenit has agreed to provide Ilić with accommodation in a luxury villa and a car. Additionally, Ilić will have access to numerous free flight tickets to Serbia. Tuttosport states that now only the administrative part and email exchanges remain.

If Ilić becomes the 11th Serbian to join Zenit and teams up with Strahinja Eraković, it will be the second-largest sale in Torino's history. The record holder is defender Bremer, whose transfer to Juventus brought the club €46.9 million, while the Serbian player would tie with Davide Zappacosta—who moved to Chelsea in the summer of 2017—as the second most lucrative outgoing transfer. Additionally, Torino sold Nikola Maksimović to Napoli for over €20 million.

Last summer, Torino paid €16.5 million to Verona for Ivan Ilić.
