Mallorca Remain Interested in Estranged Lazio Forward Muriqi

Lazio may be forced to sell Vedat Muriqi to Mallorca as they rapidly look to re-home the Kosovan following his collapsed move to Club Brugge.

The 28-year-old forward flew to Belgium earlier this week to undergo some pre-transfer medicals with Club Brugge before making a definitive transfer, but suddenly things changed and the Belgium side asked to change things to a loan deal with a buy option attached. Claudio Lotito was furious and things collapsed at that stage.

As reported by La Lazio Siamo Noi, Lazio are still looking to re-home Muriqi this summer and a return to Mallorca could be set up, although the Roman club would prefer it to be a definitive sale rather than a loan deal this time.

The figures at the moment haven’t satisfied the Biancocelesti, with Mallorca only offering around €7-8 million. Lotito is dealing with the matter personally and he’s hoping to avoid making a capital loss on the Kosovan, although that may prove impossible at this stage.
