Palermo deny receiving offers for Manchester United and Liverpool target Kjaer
Friday 13 November 2009
Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has confirmed that his club have received no official offers for Danish defender Simon Kjaer.
he 20-year-old is believed to be attracting interest from the likes of Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester United, but Zamperini has cooled such suggestions.
He told Sky Sports: "Neither Manchester United nor other teams have contacted us specifically regarding Kjaer.
"There are only incorrect movements from his agent who is offering the player to teams most important for a personal profit.
"If one club wants Kjaer they have to pay 12million euros cash, but the clause is not valid for January, only for the end of the season.
"And we are trying to eliminate this clause, discussing with the player, even if - I repeat - there are some problems with his agent."
Argentinian winger Mauro Zarate is unhappy with his lot at Lazio, according to his brother and agent, Sergio.
The 22-year-old had expected to be part of a Biancocelesti side challenging near the top of Serie A, but instead the side from the capital are 16th in the table and only just outside the relegation zone.
His sibling, Sergio, commented: "Mauro isn't happy at Lazio, he didn't expect that he was going to have to fight with the team for avoiding the relegation.
"The president had said to us that he had built a team for the Champions League, but then he didn't do anything to make it improve.
"In the correct moment we will analyse if the conditions for staying exist, or if we accept one of the offers that the president will receive."
Internazionale goalkeeper Julio Cesar has signed a new contract to keep him at the San Siro until the summer of 2014.
The 30-year-old Brazil international moved to Italy in the summer of 2005 from Flamengo and has since established himself as one of the best keepers in the European game.
He told his club's official website: "I want to celebrate this with many more victories at Inter. I am very happy and thank the club president Massimo Moratti and the whole club.
"With Inter I have already won so much, but our strength is that we continue to work hard to reach new goals."
Cesar was a member of Brazil's squad for the 2006 World Cup finals and has become the first-choice for the Selecao in the last couple of years, taking his caps tally past the 40 mark.
