Earlier today, it was reported that Lazio were interested Gary Medel. Currently playing football with Turkish club Besiktas, the Chilean midfielder is almost certain to leave at the end of the season. This is due to financial crisis: in Chile there are reports that the midfielder has turned to FIFA because of the club’s failure to pay the 31-year-old’s salary. However, in the past few hours, sporting director Igli Tare has denied the Biancocelesti’s interest in the footballer as he spoke to the microphones of La Cuarta.
He’s an interesting player, we know what he did in Inter and for his national team. However Medel is not one of the players we are following right now. We have other market objectives and there is still a long time to define the operations. We know Medel and his quality, but we are not interested.
