Matias Vecino has officially joined Lazio on a free transfer, putting pen to paper on a three-year contract.
The 30-year-old Uruguayan midfielder became a free agent last month after his contract expired with Inter, ending a five-year association with the club. Maurizio Sarri remembers Vecino well from their time together at Empoli back in the 2014-15 season and he was keen to snap him up this summer to add a little more experience to his midfield.
As announced by Lazio, Matias Vecino has officially signed a three-year contract with the club, which could be extended by a further year. His deal is understood to be worth around €1.5m net per season plus add-ons and he’ll likely be a regular feature under Sarri in the upcoming seasons.
During his five years at Inter, the 30-year-old Uruguayan midfielder made 126 appearances across all competitions. He scored 13 goals and provided seven assists in that time, helping the team win a Scudetto, a Coppa Italia and a Supercoppa Italiana.
