After finally having closed the Aleksandar Kolarov transfer saga, Lazio patron Claudio Lotito has immediately turned his attentions to Cristian Ledesma. Speaking at the club’s pre-season training camp in Auronzo, the Aquile chief declared his plans to offer a contract extension to the talismanic midfielder.
“The negotiations are on-going,” Lotito declared to Lalaziosiamonoi. “We still believe that [Cristian] Ledesma is a top player and the club has made the same offer which was put forward last summer.
“The player declared that he would stay at Lazio under certain conditions and we have responded in demonstrating our will to renew his contract.
“Given his current deal is set to expire in twelve months, we are keen to conclude the matter in the interests of both parties.”
