Italian agent Matteo Materazzi confirmed that defender Stefan Radu was in talks with Lazio to renew his contract.

Speaking in an interview with Italian media outlet TuttoMercatoWeb.com earlier today, the Italian agent first skirted around the topic of Felipe Caicedo’s future.

He is a very strong player. In fact, very strong…

Materazzi then gave an update regarding a possible contract renewal for the 34-year-old Radu.

We’re talking. We’ve seen each other and we’ll see each other again. He’s a player who has several requests.

He’s doing well at Lazio, but we need to meet with the club and understand what the project is.

Radu, who has been with the Biancocelesti since 2008, has made 25 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1960 minutes. In that time, he has provided three assists and helped the side keep eight clean sheets.

The 34-year-old Romanian broke Lazio’s all-time appearance record this season, and now has 404 appearances for the club in total.
