Lazio have raised their offer to Alessio Romagnoli as they look to sign the Milan captain on a free transfer.
The 27-year-old Italian centre-back is set to depart from the Rossoneri after seven years in the summer and it is currently unclear where his future lies, with both the Biancocelesti and Juventus linked with a move for him.
However, as reported by Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), Lazio have raised their contract offer to Romagnoli, increasing his potential salary in Rome from €3 million net per season to €3.2 million, plus various add-ons.
The ball is now in the hands of the Milan centre back, who must decide whether he wants to join a club that could fight for the Scudetto or to wear the shirt of the club that he has always supported.
Sporting director Igli Tare will meet with Romagnoli’s agent Mino Raiola some time next week and this meeting could be the decisive one. The Italian defender would be signing a five-year deal with Lazio, should he decide to put pen to paper.
