No moves for Ledesma and Gargano

Cristian Ledesma and Walter Gargano will remain with Lazio and Napoli respectively, their agent has underlined.

Ledesma has recently been paired with Premiership champions Manchester City, while the Uruguayan will continue to have a role for boss Walter Mazzarri in Naples.

“City boss Roberto Mancini likes Ledesma, but he’ll stay at Lazio,” Vincenzo D’Ippolito told Radio Mana Mana.

“It’s the same story every year, but Cristian has made a life decision and he wants to stay in Rome. I think he’ll end his career with Lazio.

“Gargano? The decision to keep Mazzarri means that it is now very unlikely that Gargano could move on. He’s vital for the Azzurri. I’m 99.9 per cent sure that he’ll remain.”

Argentine-born Italian international Ledesma, 29, scored three goals in 37 League games this term. Gargano, 27, netted twice in 33 Serie A ties.
