I think this is how Lazio will look next season:
Marchegiani - 2M - Napoli
Ballotta - part exchange - Inter
Almeyda - 22M - Parma
Baronio (no one wants him to go but Inter wants him in part exchange for Vieri) - 7M to Reggina - then part exchange to Inter)
Boksic - 9M - Monaco
Salas - PE to Inter
Mancini - retired
De La Pena - 10M - Barcelona
Peruzzi - 16M
Carini (maybe loaned out for 1st season) - 9M
Materazzi - 3M
Giannichedda - 11M
Lopez - 27M
Vieri (Almeyda + Salas + 5M)
And ManUtd have offered ONLY 32.5M for Nedved! That is even a greater insult! Do they really think that's we're that stupid? I mean, without even considering the possibility of THAT transfer, the price they offered has simply enraged me! Total InsulT!
My main worry is that Nedved himself is still keeping all his options open, and doesn't rule out a move to pussyham's club. All these rumours have only stressed me more, in addition to the nighmare called Euro 2000
I think that 32.5M is a fair offer for Nedved, not that I want him to leave ( he´s our third best player 1) Veron 2) Nesta 3) Nedved ).
I was thinking about who could replace Nedved if Cragnotti would sell him - and he will if he get´s 32.5M that´s a nobrainer. I think that Denilson would be a pick worth considering ( since Cragnotti badly wants a brazilian player ). Guys don´t get me wrong I´m not comparing the two since so far that´s not possible ( NEDVED RULES BIG TIME !! ) but I think that Betis would let Denilson go for around 22M and that would tempt Cragnotti 1) Younger player 2) huge talent 3) Brazilian.
I must concede first that I have a real bias for pussyham's club; so perhaps even if they offered 50M I'd still call it an insult Had that figure come from another club, I'd still tolerate it.
No, it wasn't that he'd like to leave Lazio. His statement was this : "I'm keeping my options open." Sounds like Morientes' statement earlier for Madrid? Well, what worries me is Nedved's comment that sometimes he feels that sometimes the pressure of Serie A is killing him (4 yrs experience). That's all. The only consolation in that is that when he moves to Lazio one day, then it shouldn't be to any of our rival clubs...
And now Cragg has assured us that Nesta,Veron, and Nedved will be guaranteed to stay in Lazio for at least one more season. I just hope that ManUtd has forgotten abt him by 2001 then! They have this habit of getting all excited about a player just after seeing 1 splendid performance (e.g., Neil Sullivan, ex-Wimbledon keeper). But if there's no significant reaction from the other end, they usually forget the player! So I hope that'll be the case for Nedved. I'm just too against ManUtd to tolerate his presence there!
