Lazio ruled out Hernanes sale

Lazio ruled out Hernanes sale

Lazio dismissed transfer rumours linking their midfielder Hernanes with a move to Milan, saying the Brazilian is not for sale.

The 27-year-old playmaker has been a subject of intense speculation following his impressive performances for the Italian giants. However Lazio are determined to hold onto services of Hernanes and insist he will stay at the Stadio Olimpico.

Lazio president Claudio Lotito said: “Milan have not asked us about Hernanes and the player is not on the market. We want to strengthen our team and not weaken it”.

He revealed coach Vladimir Petkovic will also remain at the club saying “He has a contract with Lazio and it’s not an issue.”

Lazio’s disappointing Serie A campaign saw them finishing below the Europa League zone. Now they need to beat their bitter rivals Roma in Coppa Italia final to qualify for European tournament this season.
