Lazio Refuse to Sell Vecino to Galatasaray

Lazio have reportedly rejected a last-minute move from Galatasaray for midfielder Matias Vecino.

The 32-year-old was a regular feature for Maurizio Sarri’s side in his debut season in the Italian capital, playing 2283 minutes of action across 44 games in all competitions, where he scored four goals and provided one assist.

Vecino has already played twice for Lazio in the new season, being a substitute in their opening two losses to Lecce and Genoa. He was left on the bench in the 2-1 win over Napoli.

Alfredo Pedulla details how Galatasaray emerged for Vecino last week and tried to make a last-minute move for the 32-year-old, opening talks with Lazio.

The Biancocelesti had no interest in losing the Uruguayan midfielder this summer, however, and resisted the attempts from Istanbul, making their position clear.

Vecino will continue to play a squad role in the Italian capital this season and is contracted to Lazio until June 2025.

  1. Well done to keep him. Kamada will go the the asian cups in Januray, God know what injury issues (knock on wood) we could have plus he is not bad at all! Will always give u what you expect (and that’s actually rare nowadays, consistent players..) woth the odd goal and creative pass here and there (he scored a BANGER in this Napoli-Lazio for us to take the 3pts.

    Hands off, well done Fabbiani and Lotito.

    Ps: I wanna take the time to congratulate the team for the effort in Naples, they did something we haven’t achieved since 1937 in these 2 consecutive away wins and we did both at the Maradona stadium with Sarri.. I’m in awe even considering the 1st two annoying and avoidable losses.

    On the upside we seem to turn up against the big teams for like the 4th-5th season in a row if we include Simone..
