Ezequiel Garay: Argentine Defender Proposed to Lazio

According to Il Messaggero, 33-year-old Argentine defender Ezequiel Garay has been proposed to Lazio by his Agent, Jorge Mendes. A former player of Club Atlético Newell’s Old Boys, Racing Santander, Real Madrid, Benfica, Zenit St. Petersburg, and most recently Valencia, he has left the Spanish La Liga club (following the expiration of his contract) thus becoming a free agent. As a result, the Biancocelesti have taken note of this potential transfer; not only does he have plenty of experience at the top level of football, but he also has a Spanish passport).

However, it is important to mention that Garay is coming off of a torn Cruciate Ligament Rupture which kept him sidelined for 182 days. This is the main reason why President Claudio Lotito, Sporting Director Igli Tare, and Manager Simone Inzaghi are hesitant to try and strike a deal that would bring him to Rome; not to mention that they would also have to work on agreeing to an annual salary that satisfies both parties.
