Say 'Ciao' to Alen Boksic! He has signed a three year contract with Turkish club Galatasaray. Lazio will get more than $17 million.
Brazilian Jardel will join him in Istanbul, costing over $26 million.
And thanks for everything you did for us!!
( I bet that contract with GS included an agreement about the size of the jerseys and washing prescriptions.
(and coincedental, just when Siemens got to sponsor Lazio, you know, the washing machines and all?)
And ciao to everybody here aswell for some time!!!
Cragnotti must be world happiest man now. I know that Alen was his favorite player for a long time, and before the last season Cragnotti said that he prefers Boksic in top form then Vieri in top form (bravo Sergio )
But to get so much money for Boksic, who is old, has high wages, and is not a goalscoring machine he used to be, is just brilliant.
I think you guys misunderstood the deal . As i understand it, it was in a deal worth $17mil but that would incluide player wages etc so i think the transfer fee is only $8mil
Carlito, he has done ok, not up to the standard that was expected of him though since Cragnotti expected a Vieri out of him but for $8mil hes a good buy for you!!
and sslazio11 I think Veron will get 10, Lopez 8, De La Pena 23, Baronio 25, Peruzzi 12, Carini 22, Palermo or the other striker whoever it may be 19.
19 (was andersson)
22 (was ballotta)
12 (was concetti on loan)
El matador thats right. he is gonna get $7 million and the lub gets $10 million for him. I still think its too much for a 30 year old guy.
There might be some problems in the transfre though from what i hear. He has 3 managers and they made a deal with 2 of them, also lazio but the 3rd one refuses to sign!! and if he doesnt, the transfer wont happen. Boksic is rumoed to have commented by saying that monaco wants him and he would like to go there!
Also, all the papers in Turkey are saying that he is injured from his knees!! is that true??
Gala said they have more expensiv targets if any problem occurs in the transfer and the rumo is that they have been negotiating with Kennet anderson of bologna behind closed doors.
i would definitely prfer him more than Boksic. what do u think?
It was known that Boksic is not very appreciated by his teammates, but he has a friend at least. He’s Beppe Signori, who is trying to persuade Gazzoni to sign Boksic who is not inclined to accept the transfer to Turkey even if Lazio and Galatasaray have already reached a deal. However, first of all, Gazzoni must find the money to sign the Croatian striker selling Kennet Andersson, for which Marsiglia are not inclined to spend too much money.
I read an interview with Boksic in which he said he hasn't signed anything with Gala although he has talked with them.But he also said he could stay in Rome 'cause he has a good contact and has no reason to leave.
What's wrong with Boksic and Salas? Player should be wise enough to know when to leave.They looked like leaving all season (throwing shirts...).Salas could stay even if he knows what's good for him he should leave.But Boksic really has no place in next season's Lazio.So...
Do us a favour and leave!
Deal done!! Lazio's Allen Boksic has agreed to move to
Turkish champions Galatasaray. The Croatian
international striker rejected an initial offer
from the Uefa Cup winners last week, but Lazio
president, Sergio Cragnotti confirmed that a
$7.5m transfer had been agreed. He said, ‘a deal
has been reached with the Turkish club.’ Boksic
reportedly did not favour a move to Turkey,
having played for Europe’s leading clubs such as
Juventus, Marseille and Lazio. But an $8.25m
three-year contract sealed his decision to join
