As Boyo would say, here at Lazio is better to put a good news in disguise :)
So, from SportM****set
http://www.sportmediaset.it/mercato/articoli/articolo19016.shtml
Lazio and Al Sadd have reached an agreement about the sale of Mauro Zàrate to the Eagles. Lazio will pay 15 million euro (adding that to the 2 million for the loan) for a 5 year contract. Zàrate will see his wages going up season by season, going from the current 800.000 euro to 1,5 million euro in the fifth year of his contract.

The only thing we could do. Let's hope it becomes official soon. I'm expecting Zarate to leave before the contract is over, but to let such a nugget go would be crazy. Selling him should easily fetch that 15 million if he continues like this.

Fingers crossed. Hopefully it will go through.

15 million is a lot of dough to shell out for a club like ours but in this case it's worth the investment.

I agree!!! Buy him his value is high. If he playes this way his value will be higher and higher. Then even if he wants to leave teams like Inter or real will pay big money for him.
I hope that doesnt happen, but we have seen it in the past.

Good for you guys, hopefully he continues to improve mainly mentally-cause once he becomes mature and begins taking the right decisions he will become truelly a World Class player; worthy of any big team.

He needs to show more stability and team play. Sometimes he seems to be too anxious, wanting to decide the game by himself.

Anyway, I approve the signing, of course.

Brazilian papers say we are after Miranda, from São Paulo, as well. It would be a GREAT signing. IMO, he's even better than Thiago Silva. Not as fast or good in the air as Thiago, but a more classy player, pretty much like Juan. Good on the ball and better technique. I pray the deal goes on!

That's a lovely Christmas present from Lotito. :happy:

It's a heck of a lot of money though, but Zarate is one of the most exciting players that have joined the club in recent years, so it certainly seems justified.

So,

Zarate - we sign him for good:

Miranda - fantastic central defender. With Diakite, Rozenhal and Sivilglia, we would have a respectable central defensive line.

Elano - The most needed right now.

Outgoing:

Makinwa

Mauri and Meghni perhaps ?

Who else ?

While the sports papers are filled with headlines announcing that Juventus have got Diego, Inter have taken Milito and Inzaghi (Pippo, of course) has bought a kilogramme of apples at Carrefour, I have found this article on a web site about Lazio (reporting a news from "Gazzetta dello Sport", probably appearing at page 36 or about there):
http://www.piazzadellaliberta.it/2009/05/08/zarate-lazio-al-saad-ok-per-21-milioni/

Zarate, Lazio-Al Saad: ok per 21 milioni

Adesso c’è anche l’ok finale degli arabi. E sulla vicenda Za*rate può finalmente calare il si*pario. Il numero dieci argenti*no è da ieri ufficialmente tutto della Lazio.

L’Al Sadd ha infat*ti comunicato alla Lazio di ac*cettare la formula del paga*mento immediato dei 21 milio*ni di euro per il riscatto dell’at*taccante. La cifra è quella pre*vista dalla clausola di rescissio*ne inserita nel contratto che Zarate firmò nel 2007 con gli arabi. Una clausola di cui l’en*tourage del giocatore si è av*valso per sbloccare una situa*zione che rischiava di compli*carsi dopo il tentativo dell’Al Sadd di far lievitare fino a 25 milioni il prezzo del riscatto. Alla fine, dunque, fondamen*tale è risultata la volontà del giocatore che ha voluto a tutti i costi restare alla Lazio. Una volontà confermata dalla fir*ma al contratto quinquennale a circa due milioni di euro.

The article says that Al Sadd has given the green light for the sale of Mauro Zàrate to Lazio, thanks to a clause of rescission (or whatever the term is) of 21 million euro, although Al Sadd wanted to lift that clause to 25 million euro.
According to "Gazzetta dello Sport", Zàrate's will to stay at Lazio was decisive in the deal being done. Maurito will earn about 2 million euro a season, thus becoming the Lazio player earning most.
