Cristian Ledesma Snubs Lazio Contract Renewal - Report

Lazio midfielder Cristian Ledesma has refused to sign a contract renewal with the Biancocelesti, reportedly wanting more money.

The 27-year-old, though, says his only focus is on having a good pre-season.

"I don't intend to respond or clarify anything every time that something new about me comes out," he told Sportal. "My only focus is on having a good pre-season.

The Argentine has reportedly asked for €1.8 million in wages per year, but president Claudio Lotito is only willing to go as far as €1.5m.

Lotito does not want to risk losing the player on a free transfer next season, and there could be a possibility that the midfielder could be sold.

Milan has been interested in the player for quite some time, as it looks to find a replacement for Andrea Pirlo.
