Sarri Rejects €7 Million Salary Offer to Stay With Lazio

Maurizio Sarri is continuing to attract attention from clubs around the world but is hoping to stay with Lazio in a Sir Alex Ferguson type role.

The 64-year-old Italian coach has done well to transition the team to a new style and mentality following the years of Simone Inzaghi’s leadership, with the Biancocelesti now often producing moments of pure Sarrismo on the pitch.

Whilst Lazio have looked widely inconsistent on the European stage, things have been much more positive in Serie A and a top four finish seems like a serious possibility as the season starts to draw to a close.

As reported by Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), Sarri is wanted by a number of clubs around Europe, with teams like Tottenham, West Ham, Everton, Milan and Fiorentina all interested in bringing him in.

In recent weeks, the 64-year-old was offered a salary worth €7m net per season from an unnamed club in the United Arab Emirates, which he promptly rejected.

Sarri wants to stay with Lazio in a role similar to what Ferguson had at Manchester United, something that Claudio Lotito is willing to give him should the team achieve a top four finish this season.
