Agent: 'Milan-Lazio deal for Keita'

Keita Balde Diao’s agent confirms “Lazio have reached an agreement with Milan and we have not been offered a renewal,” but Juventus are in the background.

The forward will be out of contract in June 2018 and he has so far refused to sign the proposed new deal.

It was reported last night that Milan had reached a double deal with Lazio to buy Keita and Lucas Biglia for €50m plus bonuses and this appears to be confirmed.

“After a few months apart, we met with the President,” agent Roberto Calenda told Sky Sport Italia.

“They communicated to us that they have reached an agreement with Milan, so we realised that he is on the market. Now we will make our evaluations.

“It’s difficult to know what the price is when it comes to Lazio. We talked about many things with President Claudio Lotito, but there has never been a concrete offer of a renewal.”

It was also reported that Juventus are in the background and Keita would’ve preferred to join the Bianconeri, but he is no longer the first target for the Turin giants.
