  10/10/2013: Candreva signs five-year deal

Yesterday evening, a statement was posted on the S.S. Lazio website to signal that Antonio Candreva has signed a five-year deal with the club.

Despite spending the past 21 months at Lazio, Antonio Candreva has been part-owned by Udinese. In January 2012, Lazio signed Candreva on loan, taking over Cesena's agreement with Udinese. Lazio once again took Candreva on loan for the 2012/13 season but they had a fixed option to buy 50% for 1.7 million and prior to the deadline, Lazio activated the clause. With 50% of Candreva's rights, Lazio were required to buy the remaining 50% by June 30, 2014 to avoid a blind auction where both Lazio and Udinese would have to submit independent bids and Candreva would be forced to join the club who offered the most money.

Lazio have not yet avoided the above scenario as they have not yet purchased the remaining 50%. However, pending an agreement with Udinese - which may or may not be in place - Candreva will remain at the club until 2018, earning 1.4 million per season. On signing the contract, Candreva declared that it is his intention to become a symbol at Lazio.
