Beppe Marotta: “We have made a bid for Lazio striker”

Marotta says they've made a bid for Lazio striker Keita Balde Diao

Juventus GM Beppe Marotta says they’ve made a bid for Lazio striker Keita Balde Diao.

“Keita is an opportunity that, for contractual conditions and age, all clubs must at least try to take, with all due respect for President Claudio Lotito and Lazio,” Marotta told Ansa.

“Emre Can and Adrien Rabiot are also players whose contracts expire in 2018, like Keita, but they play regularly for their teams without any drama.

“We made an offer to Lotito that we consider to be fair, then he is able to decide his strategies in his own club and so we have withdrawn.”
