Lazio dismiss interest in Man Utd striker van Persie

After being strongly linked with Manchester Utd striker Robin van Persie, Serie A club Lazio has denied any involvement with the Dutchman.

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare has denied the rumours related to van Persie, suggesting the 31-year old is too expensive for his club.

He told Lazio Style Radio: "I can only say that I respect van Persie as a striker, but unfortunately he is outside of our parameters.

"There was never any meeting."

Van Persie continues to be linked with a possible summer exit at Old Trafford as Italian champions Juventus continue to show interest.
