Zarate agent has '€12m Malaga offer'

Mauro Zarate’s agent reveals Lazio have received an “unofficial proposal from Malaga worth €12m and he’ll probably end up in Spain.”

The striker spent this season on loan at Inter, who do not seem intent on making the move a permanent one.

“I know that Malaga made an unofficial proposal worth €12m for Maurito and I think at the end of the day he’ll probably end up in Spain, especially as the Andalucía club are ambitious,” agent Jose Alberti told Radio Sei.

“Aston Villa? No, he can’t go there. He can’t remain at Lazio either, because there is one person who doesn’t want him there and that is Tare.”

Today director of sport Igli Tare denied there was “an issue” around Zarate’s return to the Stadio Olimpico.
