Cagliari goalkeeper Federico Marchetti will move to Lazio, insists his agent.

The deal appeared off after Cagliari offered Marchetti last week to AC Milan.

"There has been a handshake with Lazio President Claudio Lotito," the Italian's agent Beppe Bozzo told Radio Radio.

"I think that, at the end of the day, the move to Lazio will happen and our position has not changed," he added.

"We have a deal with Lazio and all they have to do is pay the €5.2m rescission clause in his contract before the end of August.

"However, I think that Marchetti's future will be resolved a lot sooner than that."
