Lazio want Silva on a three-year deal?

Lazio could reportedly offer Manchester City playmaker David Silva €5m a year for the next three seasons, but the Serie A side face great competition from Qatar, MLS and Spain.

Il Corriere dello Sport claims the Aquile President Claudio Lotito will attempt to convince the former Spain international and hopes to bolster the squad ahead of the upcoming season.

Silva, who will leave the Citizens after the current campaign, has been linked with a host of clubs in recent days and writes that Xavi’s Al-Sadd are prepared to pay the World Cup winner €8m a year in Qatar Stars League.

The 34-year-old, who has been one of the protagonists at the Etihad Stadium the last decade, winning four Premier League titles during his time with City, has also emerged in reports regarding a reunion with Manuel Pellegrini at Real Betis this summer.

David Beckham’s MLS club Inter Miami are mentioned too and Lazio are reportedly prepared to enter the race for his signature.

Il Corriere dello Sport underlines that the Biancocelesti have not confirmed their interest but goes on to claim the President could be willing to offer Silva a yearly salary of between €4m and €5m and tie him down for two to three years in the Italian capital.

Silva, who has won two European Championships and one World Cup after being capped 125 times by Spain, currently prepares to help Man City in the Champions League next month.
