The Rumour

Manchester City and Liverpool are waiting for news over Lazio’s intentions to sign on-loan Al Sadd striker Mauro Zarate.

“I am not worried about the future,” Sergio Zarate, the Argentine’s brother and agent, said. “If Mauro does not stay at Lazio then he will go elsewhere and is certainly not lacking offers.

“Mauro would be very happy to remain and we talked about a five-year contract, but it all depends on Lotito.

“If he doesn’t complete the buy-out, we have another four or five clubs waiting for news from Italy, Spain and England.

The Analysis

Nippy diminutive intelligent striker Zarate had a brief spell in the Premier League during which time he was unable to stop Birmingham City from getting relegated but he showed enough to suggest that he had talent. The Qatari side that own him, Al Sadd, then loaned him to Serie A side Lazio and he started the season with a bang before easing slightly but still nonetheless completing a very successful season at the Rome club helping them to a mid table finish and a Coppa Italia title.

Now it appears his brother is hawking him out for a new deal and the ball is somewhat in Lazio Chairman Claudio Lotito’s court but it appears that Liverpool and Man City are showing an interest.

The Likelihood

Zarate to Liverpool or Man City: I think not. More than likely these two teams were added into the mix by the agent himself.
