The Argentine striker was on the losing side at the weekend when Lazio won 4-1 at the Stadio Massimino.
"I still haven't spoken to Maxi," said Dario Bombino. "However, he'd be open to a move to Rome and happy to play for Lazio.
"We stayed in Rome for a week defining the details of the agreement.
"In the end Lotito turned down the chance to sign the player because in that moment he said he had enough strikers - there was Sergio Floccari and Julio Cruz."
