Marco Materazzi's Agent Won't Rule Out Lazio Move

The veteran centre-back is apparently of interest to the Italian Supercup winners...
Lazio are looking for defensive reinforcements ahead of the new season, with one option being free-agent Diego Lugano, however, another is Inter stalwart Marco Materazzi.

The player's agent, Claudio Vigorelli, has denied any contact from the Bianconcelesti, but does not rule out that move could be completed.

"Materazzi to Lazio? For now, no one has contacted me," he revealed to lalaziosiamonoi.it.

"Marco has always been happy at Inter and recently renewed his contract. Now, however, it's up to him to decide what to do."

The World Cup winner has fallen in the pecking order with the arrival of Brazilian international Lucio, while he also faces stiff competition from Walter Samuel, Ivan Cordoba, and Christian Chivu in defence.

"At Inter, he is currently second choice," he admitted in conclusion.

The 35-year-old has featured for Inter since he joined from Perugia in 2001.
