Matias Vecino expressed surprise at the rumours linking him to Lazio and confirmed that no talks have been started yet.
The 30-year-old Uruguayan midfielder is leaving Inter on a free transfer next month after five years in the Lombardy capital, a cycle which ended relatively anonymously under Simone Inzaghi. Vecino only made two Serie A starts this campaign, hardly featuring as he played only 363 minutes of league action all season.
I was shocked by what happened at Inter. At the beginning of the season the coach told me that my contractual situation would not interfere with my participation.
The 30-year-old Inter midfielder then commented on Lazio’s interest and his plans for the future.
I was surprised by the rumour about a possible transfer to Lazio, I haven’t spoken to anyone from the club, not even the coach whom I know well and of whom I have great memories.
Now I’m only thinking about the national team and the games in the United States. I am open to various possibilities, I am not closed to any league and my agent is handling several requests in Italy, England, Spain, France and Germany.
I will choose my next destination based on the club that wants me, it will not be a choice made based on the World Cup.
In his five years with Inter, Vecino made 127 appearances across all competitions, scoring 13 goals and providing seven assists. He was a part of the team that won a Scudetto, a Coppa Italia and a Supercoppa Italiana.
