Possible Vidal replacement gives conditions for staying at Lazio

SS Lazio fans

If Juventus lose Arturo Vidal, they may turn to Lazio star Antonio Candreva, who is making steep demands of his current club.

The Italian press have suggested Lazio midfielder Antonio Candreva as a possible replacement for Arturo Vidal and the Italian international seems unsettled.

Chilean star Vidal's future remains the subject of immense media speculation with reports suggesting that Manchester United are pushing for a bumper deal.

While Juventus continue to insist that Vidal is happy in Turin, the Old Lady appear to be looking at alternatives in case a deal is done.

One of the most viable options would be Lazio man Candreva, who had an excellent 2013-14 campaign and might be ready to step up to one of Italy's giants.

Il Tempo states that Candreva arrived back in Rome yesterday after a month of holiday and presented his demands to club president Claudio Lotito.

Candreva is reportedly a target for Paris Saint Germain and Napoli as well as Juventus and is ready to use that leverage to improve his contract terms.

The 27-year-old is said to be asking for a pay rise of around £1 million plus bonuses and the addition of a rescission clause that can be activated from this time next year.

Lazio will be determined to keep Candreva, especially after selling Brazilian midfield star Hernanes to Inter in January, but their financial capabilities will be tested.
