Andre Dias has “turned down an offer from Atletico Mineiro” because he wants to stay at Lazio.
The 34-year-old defender had the opportunity to return to Brazil this summer along with other alternative destinations.
“We received several different proposals, above all from Atletico Mineiro very recently,” agent Gilmar Rinaldi told LaLazioSiamoNoi.
“However, Andre said he wants to remain at Lazio until the end of his contract, which means one more season.
“Will there be another renewal? We’ll see later on.”
