CALCIOMERCATO LAZIO – A slow and delicate negotiation that is gradually bringing Maurizio Sarri to the Lazio bench. He is the man chosen by Lotito and Tare to replace Simone Inzaghi. After the farewell to Piacenza, attention has increasingly concentrated on the former Juventus, destined to become the first coach to arrive with a recent super curriculum (Scudetto and Europa League on the last two benches). Having overcome the engagement problem quite easily, the biggest obstacle in the negotiation was the technical one relating to the market. Lazio, marrying the Sarri project, is it willing to completely change its face? This is what fans, experts and Maurizio Sarri himself have asked themselves on several occasions. After years of 3-5-2 signed by Simone Inzaghi and with a squad built on that form, it is necessary to change considerably to get into the perspective of the Tuscan coach. The market will have to respond and there will be a lot of work for Igli Tare. Company and Ramadani reassured the technician that, gradually, he became more and more convinced to marry the eagles project, considered by the agent the best possible for his client. The meetings and discussions are aimed at finding an agreement on the technical project. The requests remain and the coach expects immediate responses. Let’s try to take stock and analyze the names and doubts that have accompanied the last days before the agreement that seems really one step away.
LAZZARI E HYSAJ – It has been said several times about the players of the biancoceleste squad that Sarri likes. There has been less talk, however, of the players who do not particularly warm up the coach. The first that risks is Manuel Lazzari. Mancini has also often said that he only sees him in a 3-5-2 and that his placement is difficult in a 4-3-3 or 4-3-1-2. Sarri is also of the same idea, so much so that he would prefer to coach Elseid Hysaj. The Albanian was the first shot at both Empoli and Napoli and Maurizio hopes to embrace him again at Lazio as well. The full-back is free and the call from the maestro could put the eagles at the top of his preferences. Lazzari should be sold and Lotito is not particularly convinced and hopes to convince the coach in evaluating the number 29. It will be a situation to be monitored during the summer session. In recent days we have also told you about the dream of bringing to Formello Jerome Boateng. The central frees himself from Bayern Munich and would be another important blow for the back department. Lazio are really trying and have intensified dialogues with Ramadani to try to close the deal. A very important operation because, even if the card would be at no cost, the defender in Bavaria earned 6 million euros per season. The plant is ready to lower the salary a little and the growth decree can be an important ally, but it remains a long negotiation. On the player, then, there are always also Milan and Roma who are two opponents to fear.
RUNS AND INSIGNE – Another player who risks with the 4-3-3 is Joaquin Correa. Already at the end of last season the Argentine seemed to be the expendable in case of failure to qualify for the Champions League. The South American could bring fresh money into the Biancocelesti coffers and his characteristics are not exactly what the coach requires. Sarri, in addition to Hysaj, dreams of returning to coaching too Lorenzo Insigne. According to what we learned from our editorial team, the coach would have asked Tare and Lotito for an effort to reach the striker of the national team. The friendship with Ciro Immobile, the call of the old coach and the not perfect relations with Napoli could be precious allies. Insigne will free himself in 2022 and ask for a salary of 5 million per season plus bonuses. De Laurentiis, on the other hand, would like to confirm the 4.5 per season. Lazio could enter this rift and spread the figure over several years with the addition of bonuses linked to appearances, goals, assists and results. Difficult and demanding business, but that for Sarri would be a nice gift given that the Neapolitan elf with the Tuscan technician lived some of his best years. In addition to these names that have emerged, there are at least a couple of other attacking outsiders, a full-back, a mezzala and a central defensive. A lot of work to do, but if you turn to a first choice like Sarri, after all, you have to take a risk.
