Zarate laughs off Man City links

The €20m-rated Mauro Zarate is said to be of interest to Manchester City, but his agent insists “he wants to stay at Lazio.”

The Argentine striker has had numerous problems over the past season with Coach Edy Reja, fuelling reports of a move abroad.

Manchester City are particularly intrigued by the 24-year-old, while Atletico Madrid see him as an ideal replacement for Sergio ‘Kun' Aguero.

“Maurito is certainly a player who is popular on the transfer market and his value is around €20m,” explained agent Giuseppe Bozzo.

“Having said that, he is relaxed. He wants to get married and has every intention of staying at Lazio.”
