Man City target Zarate happy at Lazio

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has said that the club would consider any important offers for Mauro Zarate.

The 24-year old Argentine winger has emerged as a transfer target for Manchester City, as well as Atletico Madrid and Juventus, and Lotito indicated that he could be on his way out this summer if anybody came in with a good enough bid. But the players agent, Giuseppe Bozzo, insists that Zarate is keen to remain in the Italian capital.

"(Manchester) City like Mauro but I don't know if he is on their wish list," Bozzo told Corriere dello Sport.

"When I went to Spain to talk to Atletico Madrid, I discussed other players but not Mauro.

"Mauro is not on the market and has not asked for a transfer.

"He has a release clause of 25million euros and it will be difficult to sell him although in football you never know.

"But he is happy at Lazio."
