Lazio agree Candreva deal

SS Lazio fans

It seems that Lazio have succeeded in buying out Udinese's share in talented midfielder Antonio Candreva but they could now sell him on.

Lazio are one of the busiest sides in Italy in the transfer market at present and they appear to have successfully bought the remaining share of Antonio Candreva from Udinese.

The Italian international has come into his own this season, especially after the sale of Brazilian star Hernanes to Inter, which forced him to take even greater responsibility for Lazio's creative output.

Candreva has been a bright spot in a season of unrest at Lazio which has seen club president Claudio Lotito at odds with the fans.

The 27-year-old has been cool under pressure, converting six penalties and helping guide Lazio back into contention for Europa League qualification, which has apparently caught the attention of Manchester United.

Man United are in the market for a midfielder and Candreva comes with the added benefit that he can play as a winger or in the centre.

Lazio have reportedly paid Udinese just over £6.5m for the other 50 percent of Candreva's rights and can now dictate his future.

While Candreva is seen as a crucial figure for Lazio's future, the club have become known for selling talent for profit in recent times and a significant offer could tempt Lotito.

However, Lotito knows that his fragile relationship could be made permanently untenable should he agree to sell off another fan favourite.
