Lazio president Claudio Lotito has blasted the agent of defender Modibo Diakite.
Diakite is on the brink of signing for Napoli as he comes off contract in June.
â€śThere are people, so-called agents, who are taking action to suit their needs,â€ť Lotito told Sky Sport Italia.
â€śBehaviour which causes damage to the sport and their own players. This is the logic of a mercenary and history shows that mercenaries have lost all wars.
â€śSavini has become the agent of Cavanda, Diakite and Icardi. All three players are in similar situations and have a common denominator.
â€śIf a player stays at the same club then they donâ€™t bring any economic advantage to the agent, who undoubtedly benefits when a player leaves on a Bosman free transfer.
â€śWe offered Diakite â‚¬850,000 a season plus bonuses, while he today earns â‚¬250,000. He would have been our highest paid defender despite the fact that he still has to prove his worth.â€ť
