Martin Caceres is a name who has been linked away from Lazio since the January transfer window first opened and the former Juventus defender is truly coming to an end of his time in the Italian capital. Caceres has failed to really feature that much for Simone Inzaghi, aside from a few cameo appearances and a fresh wave of faith in the Uruguayan after his strong performances at the World Cup in Russia.
According to reports from Torcedores.com, Caceres himself would have said: “I am in contact with the club, but there is still no agreement” – in regards to a possible move to Brazilian side Flamengo. Flamengo had initially targeted Inter Milan’s Miranda as their ideal signing but the costs were seen as too high and the Brazilians have shifted their attention to Caceres. This is further supported by a cryptic message left by Caceres on his instagram story, reading: “Thank you for the love and messages of thousands of people”, followed by a red and black emoji – symbolising the colours of Flamengo.
It is clear that Flamengo are close to securing Caceres – and both sides will be doing what they can to get this deal over the line – freeing up some of Lazio’s wage budget and giving Caceres a fresh start.
