A hope, adesire, a dream. “Surely I’ll go to England” posted Zarate on Twitter.But his brother comments “There is nothing new, but we will wait until the lastminute of the market”.
SergioZarate is in constant contact with president Lotito, but still it remains forboth men to meet face to face. The brother is irritated: “ The problem isLotito. He is rejecting all proposals till now” – he is quoted by www.repubblica.it. There have been offersfor Zarate, but Claudio Lotito did not like any of them. For example theproposal of Inter – a loan with the right of buying the striker after the loandeal expires. But Lazio does not foldunder the pressure. They are awaiting the final assault on Mauro Zarate. It issaid that the Biancocelesti are going for a 4 million loan with a 16 millionbuy-out clause, so Lazio can get the 20 million they want for the Argentinian.While Inter’s president Moratti is thinking on the situation, Zarate’s brotherand his agent Bozzo are working on their English connections. Liverpooland Arsenal are said to have interest in the forward. Both are expecting also asurprising move from Manchester City if the Citizens saygoodbye to want-away forward Carlos Tevez and troublemaker Mario Balotelli. Butit is almost sure that if not now, Mauro Zarate will leave in January.
“I wouldstay at Lazio for life, but Reja doesn’t want me and has no courage to say itto the fans” – says the Argentinian. As the ice between these two thickensZarate has no intention to ask for clarification of the situation. The lockerroom stands by Reja’s side as the players don’t like Zarate’s attitude and his “escape”from Formello on the night of the first Europe League round on 17th of August.
Meanwhileanother forward of Lazio awaits to find out his future. Striker Sergio Floccariis wanted by Lilleand interest was reported from Marseille and St. Etienne. Genoa and Fiorentina are also following thesituation. Floccari’s faith also touches the faith of Czech Libor Kozak. If theCalabrian stays it will be Kozak who will leave. Chievo are favorites for hissignature.
