Agent: Roque could roll to Lazio

The Paraguay international striker is currently well down Roberto
Mancini’s pecking order and has been tipped to leave before the
window closes. The ex-Blackburn and Bayern Munich ace has been
interesting a number of clubs and it seems that Lazio now lead the
race for his services. His agent Jan van Baal says the clubs have
held talks and that the Biancoceleste has made a £4.9million
offer for the player who cost City £18million. “I understand
that there have been meetings between Manchester City and Lazio’s
officials for the transfer of Santa Cruz,” explained van Baal. “I
have been informed about the real interest of Lazio. At this moment
I can say that there’s a 50 per cent possibility that the transfer
can be done. “This proposal is official and according to what I
have been informed Lazio would be offering 6million euros.”
