Lazio may be forced to accept a capital loss on Vedat Muriqi as RCD Mallorca continue to push their €9 million bid.
The Biancocelesti were hoping to sell the Kosovan striker to Club Brugge but the situation turned sour following a round of medical tests; the Belgian club looked to change the formula from a definitive transfer to a loan deal with a buy option attached, something not appreciated by Lazio, causing the deal to collapse.
As reported by Il Messaggero (via TMW), Lazio are having trouble shifting Muriqi and Mallorca’s best offer is still only €9 million, figures that would see the Roman club make a capital loss on the Kosovan.
The Biancocelesti have almost accepted that at this point considering the poor displays shown by Muriqi and the difficulty in re-homing him, so a deal with Mallorca would solve their issue.
Updates are expected in the coming weeks and it’s incredibly likely that Lazio will eventually finalise Muriqi’s departure before the end of the summer transfer window.
