Lazio Plan Move For Boateng

Italian side SS Lazio are said to be mooting a four-year offer for Schalke outcast Kevin-Prince Boateng.

The former AC Milan midfielder, who has had a poor season this term, was dealt a heavy blow on Monday. He was announced alongside Sidney Sam by the Schalke management as having been released from their contracts by the club. The club later said the two are on suspension.

According to Corriere della Sera and Tuttosport, Lazio, long admirers of the 28-year-old, are set to launch a second bid worth €2.2 million per season plus bonuses to tempt him to return to the Italian capital. Lazio failed to sign Boateng in 2010.

Boateng has one season more on his Schalke contract and the club are said to be plotting against having to compensate him for unilateral contract abrogation.

Meanwhile, the German professional players union, VDV, has released a statement criticising Schalke’s conduct as trying to use Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sidney Sam as scapegoats for their season woes, urging the two players to legally defend themselves against their employers.
